Re: Just a quick reminder here re: baseball
Is it luck that the Nationals didn't use Strasberg correctly so that the Cards could avoid him in the division series? not exactly. They just took advantage of the nationals' mistake.
Is it luck that they made the most of sneaking into the postseason? No. They took advantage of the opportunity.
The cardinals have a far better offense than the Reds. That is not luck. That is the truth. We had better try to improve and upgrade our offense while keeping our superior pitching staff together. If we hold pat, and the Cardinals find another effective starter (if shelby miller continues to improve they don't even need a FA or a trade to find that starter) we will be in for a fight for the division next year.
