Re: Just a quick reminder here re: baseball
Im a reds fan but its pretty pathetic by other fans to whine about the cards being lucky.
Who cares how many playoff teams were eligible last year it has nothing to do with this year.
Who cares if there were x amount of teams in the AL w/ better records. It doesnt matter.
Who cares if the cards won a WS w/ 83 wins. It doesnt matter.
Who cares if the Braves lost a huge lead last year. It doesnt matter.
It happens, every team at some point will benefit from another teams player being injured, or weak division, or some other form of variance.
The reds were lucky to face the weakest part of their schedule and have Frazier, Ludwick, the pitching play out of their mind when Votto went down. The reds were lucky to win gm 1 w/ an injured Cueto.
