    The Yankees having to play 5 days in a row is crazy.  All so Bud could cram in his wild card extravaganza.

    Oh yeah, being the second wild card team has really been a disadvantage for the Cards.

    It seems fitting that in this year of Bud making things 'fairer for division winners', 2 88-win teams are going to meet in the World Series.

    It looks like a rematch of the 2006 World Series.  The Cardinals won that year despite a 83-78 record.

    That's right.  And they won last year after a 90-win season.  I guess they are perfecting the art of getting hot at the right time.

    I admit I have rooted for the Tigers second to the Sox for the past few years.... but if ever there were a team that played crappy all year and snuck into the play-offs it is the 2012 Tigers. 

    The White Sox over-played and really surpassed expectation only to fade the last month. If baseball had a more realistic 132 game schedual it might help keep things more balanced.
