It was simply unreal. This entire ride for the Cardinals this year has been like something out of a movie like "The Natural." They last led the NL Central July 25 and after a terrible stretch, found themselves trailing the Braves by 10˝ games... then all of a sudden started playing like a team, while the Braves fell apart and got into the playoffs on the last day of the season. Underdogs against the Phillies and Brewers, and managed to get by... seems like this team plays its best when their back is against the wall. Can't wait for tonight, but either way what a season. If they lose, I'll be happy for Nolan Ryan at least.
