And yes most people do consider the Cardinals the luckiest team in the history of baseball. They lead a charmed life with all the low-win playoff appearances, benefiting from blown calls (twice in the post-season this year already), and teams collapsing in front of them to give the Cards a chance.
Dusty Baker was also a big beneficiary of steroids while with the Giants and Cubs.
The 1985 Cardinals called. They want their championship back from the Royals.
The 2004 and 2005 Cards also called, they want a dose of that luck as well.
The amount of butt hurt in this forum right now is on comedic levels. Taking your anger out on the Cards for pulling out a victory while your team FAILED to just win one game at home makes some of you look like sore losers. Accusing the Cardinals of cheating and it contributing to their wins makes some of you look low class. Have fun brooding in the off season.
