A Thing the Author Didn’t Know
A thing the author didn’t know is how the Cardinals have played their way into Wild Card contention.
Regarding Said Contention
After their defeat Sunday night of Philadelphia — and Atlanta’s loss to the Mets — St. Louis is three games behind Atlanta in the NL Wild Card race, giving them an 8.1% chance of winning same Wild Card berth.
Regarding Said Contention, Part II
The Cardinals’ current chances at the Wild Card are the highest they’ve been since August 17th.
