What team has held teams to .157 over this last 29 home games and .120 in the playoffs, who has .236 minor league hitters winning games along with a .227 hitter in the RS, who has players like Lohse go from 10 games under .500 with a 4.79 to 19 games over with a 3.11 overnight. who else hires a manger with no experience and wins, who else gets in as 2nd WC who lets one of the best players in baseball walk with nothing lost, what team has a .430 BABIP player at home who loses the best playoff OPS in baseball history and see his replaces get all 3 runs of a 3-1 comeback win and then get on base 3 times the next night.
There's luck and then there's Cardinals luck! A team who could have 3 of the 4 worst records of a WS winners in the last 25 years.
