Way to much is bieng placed on STL's Win/Loss record this season.
They have been the class of the National League for most of this century.
calling them underdogs is quite the stretch

The Cardinals deserved to win, without any argument to the contrary, but I didn't see anything in any of the playoff series that could be called greatness. It wasn't Johnson and Schilling beating the Yankees, it wasn't Kirk Gibson homering off of Eck, heck...there just weren't many moments that would make you remember where you were when you saw them.
This should take nothing away from the Cards...they're champs, end of story. I'm sure there have been dozens of series that would be similar in comparison too, so there's nothing overly unique here.
