do we really want to compare October success' between the Cardinals and Red Sox over the past 100 years?

The Cardinals have the second most World Championships, only behind the Yankess, while the Red Sox win one about every 86 years.
Actually my historically challenged friend, thats 6 World Series victories for the Red Sox, not 1. So since the WS has been played for 102 years, it averages to one win every 17 years. And lets not forget the Cards are now in a 23 yeard WS drought...how old were you when they last won? About 23 months old I'd venture to guess. How's that memory?

Sounds just like all those Carolina Panther fans who were woohooing about beating the Pats last August in a friggin' exhibition game. Redemption will be if you clowns from St Louis beat Boston in a championship, not a regular season game.

You're probably of the mindset that Peyton Mannnings 1.5 regular season MVP's the last few years are more meaningful than Brady's 2 Superbowl MVP's.

Enjoy you spring and summer baseball, lets see what happens when fall rolls around.

If thats a typo, its the most appropriate one I've ever seen.
The O's have a killer lineup, but I can't see that pitching staff holding up over the long haul.

A humiliating loss is getting beat as a 14 point favorite in the SuperBowl, or getting swept in the World Series after winning over 100 regular season games, not a 7-1 loss when you were a 130-150 underdog early in the regular season on the road and your starting pitcher is in a slump. Thats an expected and "so what, there's 161 other games" loss.
Did you guys have a parade in St. Louis after your "REDEMPTION"?

yankees are back under .500... they hit a stretch of games where you figured they'd pull even in the AL east... the royals, who stink... the twins, who the yankees always beat... and the brewers, who, again, stink.

and they've gone 1-6 in that stretch thus far... with the cardinals waiting on the horizon.

Every team is over .500 in the NL. When was the last time at this point in a season that this has happened?

Don't think the Wild Card will come out of the NL east

The NL East is friggin wacky right now, all 5 teams within 1.5 games of each other.
And frankly I don't see much to indicate any one of those teams running away and hiding or falling way by the wayside, so that could be a 5 team race into September.
