Re: Wins comparison/Upcoming schedule comparison
Interesting but this is similar to what happened in 2010, if I remember correctly. The Reds have a winning record against below .500 while the Cardinals had the exact opposite. I could argue that the Cardinals "easy" stretch could be bad for them since they have a bad record against bad teams.
I kept asking what's worse? Losing against bad teams or losing against good teams? It's interesting and a valid point for playoff banter but it doesn't matter in the regular season. Teams needs wins to reach the playoffs and a W against the Marlins equals one against the Cardinals.
