It's because of the ump thing.. it's because they shouldn't have ben in a one game playoff in the first place. It's because baseball has been made a joke over the past 10 years. Even though, in reality, it started long before then with Selig's willing ignorance on the inherent drug problems that would later bite him in the ass.
The cardinals should not be in the playoffs at all. If they win it all, it only further taints baseball. How can team that only got in because of bullshit rules and buillshit calls be your champion? How is that GOOD for your sport?
And this isn't just a one bad year deal with baseball.. this has been a growing poison within the sport for decades. They care about ratings... let em juice. They want ratings.. change the all star game so the winner wins home field in the WS. They want ratings.. they go to a one game playoff that can reward a far inferior team for playing well in ONE GAME. Hell, let's not even get into the bullshit over how owners are chosen. Seriously.. if you don't think there are problems in this sport then I don't know what to say. It's just baffling how people can stand up for the integrity of the sport being tainted every passing year.
