Call the Cardinals lucky - the Reds would have lost to them in the playoffs - just as a BETTER team (Washington) did.
Thanks to the last series being meaningless and the Reds pulling all the SP early resting them. Arroyo 73, Latos 78 and Bailey 70 pitches.
Cozart is better than Kozma, Ludwick had a better year then Beltran for 10M less and I'm sure the Cards would take Bruce and his 34 HR and 99 over Holliday's 27 and 102 for 12 less million. And BP and Joey blow away what the Cards have there.
Only Cards fans still think the best teams win in the playoffs, how cute. Look above a couple posts and see how the weakest teams are about to win more playoffs games than the teams in the best record in baseaball in the playoffs in 2000's.
