• NL WILD CARD GAME: So which NL Central team is going to move on and meet the St. Louis Cardinals? [spit]™!!! Can the Cincinnati Reds, who finished four games in front of the Washington Nationals in the race for the second Wild Card spot, beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in PNC Park and make the Bucs' return to the postseason for the first time since 1992 a brief one? Who are Nats fans cheering for in the NL Wild Card game? The Reds who boxed the Nats out of the final WC spot or the Pirates, whose clutch OF Andrew McCutchen pwns the Nats? .395/.458/.825, six doubles and 13 HRs in 30 games and 131 PAs? Really? I guess the best way to decide is really to ask a simple question: Which team can beat the Cardinals? Who's watching the NL Wild Card game?
