The NLC’s only representation in the post season was just swept tonight. I had heard some say that the Cards were the team to beat in the NL and others say that the Cards were confident going in to the series. Behind Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright, I guess that’s understandable, but watching them in that last series again the Reds, I didn’t have high hopes. They went 2 for their last 10 for crying out loud.
It makes me wonder: if the Cubs hadn’t faded in September and the Cards hadn’t clinched so early, would they have been a better team going in to the post-season? Or would they not have gone at all?
Oh well, there’s always next year. Ought to be interesting to see how they do if their “pitcher whisperer” does indeed fly the coop as is being rumored. I wouldn’t hate to see him replacing Dick Pole.
