    Re: Go Nationals!

    9 games out of first, and now the NLCS.

    2 Wildcards seems a bit silly.



    Braves (4), Nationals (1)
    Giants(3), Reds(2)

    What a cruel way to wake up. Stupid Cardinals.

    Woke up to this and not suprised. I actually have a freindly wager (made 2 weeks ago) that the Cards would be the NL representative in the WS. One step closer to unfathomable wealth .

    I get rivalries, but I certainly don't get the hatred thrown at the Cardinals. I get the dislike for Carpenter, but the rest of that squad seem like fairly decent kids. Maybe I'm not close enough to the team to know.

    Good season to the Nats. Suprised me.

    But this year's one game winner-take-all WC game was stupid IMO. This is baseball, not football.

    I'm old school.... I liked having two divisions in each league and the winners played each other for the pennant. But those days are lonnng gone, never to return because of M-O-N-E-Y.

    Re: Go Nationals!

    Somebody's going to have to detonate something in the Cards dugout to knock them out of the playoffs.

    Going back to September of 2011, the way that team has stayed alive has been incredible. No team I'd rather see lose (OK, except the Yankees), but you have to give them a lot of credit for persevering and prevailing the way they have.

    I'm not a huge fan of wild cards, but the Cardinals were second in the NL in run differential. If the Cards are the NL rep in the WS, its not as outrageous as many are making it out to be.

    I think if you have to have a wild card, penalizing them by making them play in a one and done game that the division winners aren't subjected to is better than one where they are bascally treated equally to the division winners.

    Code:
    Team	RS	RA	Dif
    Was	731	594	137
    St L	765	648	117
    Atl	700	600	100
    Cin	669	588	81
    SF	718	649	69
    AZ	734	688	46
    Mil	776	733	43
    LA	637	597	40
    Phi	684	680	4
    Pit	651	674	-23
    NY	650	709	-59
    SD	651	710	-59
    Mia	609	724	-115
    Col	758	890	-132
    Chi	613	759	-146
    Hou	583	794	-211

    It is pointless to root against the Cardinals.

    And hating them seems petty and futile to me.

    They continue to do what we cannot do and we are jealous.

    Besides, if we actually root FOR them, they will surely lose....

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
