Losing 3 of 4 to the Cubs. All very winnable games. Make it stop, somebody.
Now, I think time has more than ran out. It’s pretty much……over. I hate to say it, but the Cardinals will probably not get a chance to defend their title this October. Now, I will still be watching the games and I will root for the Cardinals all the way until they are mathmatically eliminated. There’s always that chance for a miracle.
However, I know have a big decision to make. And I’d love to hear your input on it. With the Cardinals magic number of elimination now at a tiny 7, do I finally concede the season over and start rooting for the Brewers? Obviously before, I wanted the Cubs and Brewers to lose, so that we could gain ground, but I’m afraid it’s too late for that. However, the Crew just sit 1 game back of the Cubs and could keep them going to the postseason.
What do you think? Is it over? Should I switch to a full-time Brewer fan? (Barring, of course, their series against us….I can’t root against the Cardinals.)
Also, a quick side note: If the Cardinals and the Tigers, do not make the postseason, which is looking rather likely, we will yet again have two new teams in the World Series for the 7th straight year. The last year one team made a return to the World Series two years in a row were the 2000 and 2001 Yankees. And the last time a team won it two years in a row were the 1999 and 2000 Yankees. As for the NL? The last NL team to make a repeated trip to the World Series in consecutive years were the Braves in 1995 and 1996. And I had to all the way back to the 70s Reds for the last time an NL team won it all 2 years in a row.
I guess we had it stacked against us to repeat, huh?
All but out of it,
