The Cardinals are getting that 1997 Indians type of feel. They've had vastly superior teams in the past that have failed in the postseason, they won their division by default, and now they might beat a much better team on their way to the World Series. With Mets sending a rookie and potpourri in Games 6 and 7, respectively, the Cardinals certainly have a decided advantage down the stretch.
