To put that 41% of wins vs 90 loss or more teams into perspective a team like the Angels missed the playoffs and had more wins than the Cardinals but won just 27% of their wins vs 90 loss clubs.
They Angles had just 3 wins vs the 3 worst MLB teams while the Cardinals had 26!
Also for the record I was here saying how dumb the 2nd Wild Card was before the Cards even were leading in it over the Pirates let alone winning in the playoffs from the spot.
Is it the Cardinals fault they qualified for the postseason under the current system?
