Re: Moving on to Football because my Cubs SUCK!

Tony LaRussa used to say that if an MLB team wins about half their series, they'll make the playoffs. To see if he was right, I began pulling data for every Cardinals season going back to 1998 to see for myself how true his statement was. Well, LaRussa was right. When the Cardinals win about 55% of their series, they're usually in the playoffs. So, I've been keeping a running tally every season so that I can see whether or not it's likely we'll make the playoffs or not. 162 games is a long season and we're playing game 25 today. However we're getting off to an abysmal start having only won 2 out of 8 series so far. In the past 21 years, Cardinals have made the playoffs 15 times and won the WS twice.
