Now the fortunes are reversed. It all about taking care of your own business.
Yes, and eventually the Reds will have to deal with the Mets too, that part evens out.
You are missing the point...it is NOT just about taking care of your own business, because the Cards get SIX games against the dreck that is the Royals. And the Royals have been so gawd-awful for so long now, that that fact is extremely unfair to the rest of the teams in the Central (and NL for that matter) who don't get that advantage. Three games against the Royals this year is nice, six games would sure be better.
It is a good point every year, because it is unfair every year. It is genuinely a surprise when the Royals win a game from the Cardinals.
