Sour grapes. Incapable of giving credit where credit is due.
The Cards split at home then took two on the road. Pure luck. Note my sarcasm.
You keep bringing up that they never would have made it any other year, while true, they did. And now they're in he LCS and the Reds are not. Keep throwing out Kozma stats. He performed. Keep saying they were lucky. You cannot deny they did what they needed to to make the playoffs this year.
As I stated before, do you discredit NCAA teams that take out the #1 seed? No. This is a playoff. The two teams with the bet record don't always make the final.
I realize you're only whining because the Reds couldn't get it done and the Cards did. Were the roles reversed you'd be quoting stats that were in favor of the Reds. As I said before, sour grapes.
How many games did Strasburg start? Cards fans are the dumbest they get in as the 11th best team in MLB watch the Braves beat themselves and see the Nats blow a massive lead with walks without one of the games best pitchers all will getting a unreal check swing call down to last strike and they think they have a great team.
Cards fans think others are jealous of them because they are good, everyone hates the Cards because they have stupid fans who are so dumb to honestly realize how lucky the really are.
Last 3 NLCS teams 88 wins 11th best team in baseball only in on new rule, 90 wins needed Braves to play .333 ball over the final 26 games, that Braves team wins more than this years Cards did and went home. in 2006 went with 83 wins that year 12 of the 24 other teams outside of the NL Central won more game.
The Cards are the luckiest team for a long while now. The only people who refuse to see that are the moronic Cards fans. The same fans who are so insecure they live on rival teams message rather than be happy with the other mouth breathers.
Like I said I told you the Cards trolls would be out in full force, they pulled a rabbit out of their ass and the first thing they want to do is come to a Reds board. Seems like the Cards fans may have a slight inferiority complex.
The fact we have 30 guests at 4AM Cincinnati time over 36 hours after the Reds finished playing shows how butthurt the Cards fans are in life even when their team wins then need to reach for justification or validation.

What made baseball so great and the national pastime was the two best teams played for the WS each year, then they went to 4, then 8 and now 10. Letting 1/3 of the teams into the playoffs of a game that plays 162 games is retarded.
The whole reason they play 162 games to begin with is to see who's the best teams are. The reason other sports let more teams in is because they don't play as many games to weed out the good from the bad and they get losing teams into their playoffs. When the two teams who weren't even in the 1/3 of baseball after 162 games are 2 of the final 4 teams left its bad for baseball long term, and far from the glory days of when the best teams won the Commissioners Trophy.
Today's game rewards bad teams who have to play to the wire rather than the good teams who lock up their spot early and lose in the playoffs. That's why the best teams hardly even make the World Series let alone win it.
Hey look everybody, a Cardinals fan on a Reds message board into the wee hours of the morning. Obviously here to be friendly with opponents' fans the night his team comes back from 2 down to go to NLCS.
I can't wait for the Cardinals to win another WS and this guy is starting his own threads on our 'Game Threads' board.
You'll never come around. The Cards could have swept the Nats and out scored them 30-3 in the series and they still would have been lucky.
Strasburg not pitching, while was a factor, Gio(possibly Cy Young winner) did pitch twice. He started off strong last night and faded. He never had control of his first outing either.
At some point, you have to put stats aside and say "wow that was unreal".
I honestly feel bad for you because you are incapable of appreciation. You personify the Reds fan base. Full of cynicism and negativity.
This from Hal McCoy says it all for me-"It was the sixth straight elimination game victory for the Cardinals ó and itís why the St. Louis Cardinals ARE the St. Louis Cardinals."
Luck, skill, swaggar-whatever-they always get the job done and post the W.
Hopefully someday Reds Fans hopefully someday.
Hometown just stop talking. You need to realize that you're just adding fuel to the fire bro. Cards fans are coming on here and love reading what you are posting because its making you look incredibly bitter. Cards fans love it because you talk so much sh*! about the cardinals on here and now they get to rub it in your face. Understand they're just laughing at you while keep responding. You're getting trolled hardcore man.
Cards are a better clutch team than the Reds. What more can you say. For some reason the baseball Gods love the Cards and just love toying with the Reds. Also there 9th inning at bats were amazing last night. As much as I hate them and are jealous of there success hats off to them. They know what it takes to win. Now on to another long offseason. This will be the hardest one yet,
