Well, there it was in my i-phone: Cards 1 Dodgers 5.
DeRo went ofer.
Cardinals went ofer.
Dodgers went on to round 2.
I'm sooo freaking busy, and I apologize for no illustration today, but am working on one for what I thought was the most significant play of this series and the one Cardinal fans will remember forever - the error in left with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th. No matter what any Cardinal fan will tell you, that's this year's post-season headline.
Their GM, John Mozeliak, traded the Card's top 3 prospects to get Matt Holliday. Read about it here.
It certainly was the move that put them over the top, but they ran into the same buzz saw the Cubs did last year, they got nothin' except first place in the NL Central, and now they're looking at perhaps losing pitching genius coach Dave Duncan, all the lost prospects, and the unenviable task of trying to sign this year's mercenaries, Holliday and DeRo, to real contracts.
All that is good for the Cubs, of course.
And I gotta say, it's nice not being the team with a "Bartman" or a "Durham" play to remember a season by.
