but I was wondering if anyone else around here is extremely frustrated with the world series. I know we could've beaten Detroit...whats happening to them now happened to us. And everyone knows that an 83-79 club should not win the World Series...crap shoot, schmap shoot...hot club or not St. Louis is an awful team from an awful division (although I'll always like LaRussa, Dunc et al).
This diary entry in no way proposes any solutions to fixing a playoff scenario where the worst team wins the championship...and I dont dislike the Wild Card.
But I think we are all pretty astute baseball fans around here and we may be looking at another year of the WS being won by a vastly inferior team, with many other teams grossly more talented and just plain better. Is this what fans want? I know I dont.
Maybe the Tigers, a legitimate team, will get rolling and win this thing as they deserve...but i will certainly have a bad taste in my mouth if the Cards win with their record, and thats nothing against St. Louis...
