    The 83-regular season win Cardinals win the World Series behind the pitching of … Jeff Weaver?!

    Sign him up. Who needs Matsuzaka? Weaver, Jeff Suppan, and a corner outfielder. Make it so, Bavasi.

    Did Spiezio hit above the Mendoza line in the post season?

    Dodger Sims predicted the Cardinals would win in five games. What it is, is a baseball simulation of 1000 games. It takes the pythagorean win pct of the two teams and converts it into a win expectancy (for each game). Of the first five games, it predicted the Cardinals would win four of them.

    I haven’t preordered your book yet. I want to help it peak close to release time. E.g., when that “Pa” is removed from its title.

    And THIS is why you care who wins the Cards/Mets series…

    well, we’ve lost Matt Sinatro as a potential broadcast color guy, as Lou has hired him back in Chicago….

    If ever you wanted “proof” that the post season is a crap shoot (heavily dependent on luck, insert your term here), I think you have it. The Cardinals aren’t a bad team but three weeks ago there was a pretty good case that they weren’t one of the TEN best teams in baseball. They certainly looked to be the weakest team in the playoffs. Now they’re World Series champs.

    Actually even today, I don’t think they’re one of the ten best teams this year.

    On the other hand, the Cardinals have made 6 playoff appearances the past 7 years, so seeing them strike it rich on one of them isn’t THAT surprising.

    That’s the argument for “get to the playoffs consistently”.
