All the Facebook experts said it couldn't happen, but the Cardinals begin the playoffs today at 4:05 in Atlanta against the Braves.
The Cardinals won the National League Central Championship on the last day of the season. The Redbirds go into the playoffs as underdogs, and I'm fine with that!! That's when they win.
2006 they only won 83 games, backed into the playoffs and won the World Series.
2011 they were the wild card team and won the World Series.
1964 they won the national league pennant (before the days of playoffs, when the only postseason was the World Series) on the last day of the season and won the World Series.
Underdogs? Yup, I'm fine with it!! Go Cards!!!
