    JayStubbs is right. The cardinals only got into the last two playoffs because of dumb luck, that being said they capitilized on their lucky opportunities. Also, alot has been made on here specifically by hometown about how many games the cardinals won against teams under .500. You're supposed to win the games against teams under .500. in fact the best teams in the league usually only play around .500 against other teams with .500 records but dominate the teams with bad records. And since we're going to make fun of eachother's states, which is hilarious that this conversation has devolved into that, Ohio is America's capital of run down ****ty post-industrial towns. Akron, dayton, toledo, youngstown, sandusky, cleveland. The only town in your whole state that is prospering right now is Columbus and that because of Ohio state.

    Cincinnati was also plenty lucky, it was lucky that Ludwick ended up having the year he did and whenever you get to play 81 games at the Great American Small Park you have more luck on your side than any one. I honestly believe that ballpark is the reason why the reds were so unnecessarily feared. Bruce, who hit 34 homers this year would only hit about 25 if he were playing in, say Busch stadium. Its lucky that the reds won as many games as they did when they only have two good hitters (Votto and phillips). Bruce is a great power hitter but i will never call a perenial .250 hitter a great hitter.
