And there was a recent Cards team that was barely over .500 and won the WS.

I wonder how often does the best reg sea team actually win it all.....
The Braves were no dynasty! They only won 1 World series and that was in a short season!

That's like calling the Seattle Seahawks a dynasty for winning 1 Superbowl.

Dynasties need more than 1 win in the WS or the Super Bowl or NBA title. The SF Giants won 3 WS out of 5 yrs....and I hate the Giants...and that's a dynasty.

Yeah, winning 1 doesn't make you a dynasty, heck even winning back to back doesn't make you one. No one would call the Blue Jays of the early 90s a dynasty for winning back to back.


The funny thing is that there's actually more parity in MLB than the NBA and the NFL, even though there is no salary cap. You have quite a few different world series champions and none has won back to back since the Yanks of the late 90s to early 2000. I remember reading an article a few years back on this that pointed that out. Just the last 5 World Series champions have been different.

His post season record is shameful. He should shave off his beard and do penance at a monastery in Tibet.

kershaw shouldn't feel that bad, he only tied the game, they could have still come back and won the game. Kelly loaded up the bases and gave up a grand slam, he made 1 mistake that cost everything.

It's going to be the Astros vs the Yanks in the ALCS, the real World Series. Will be a good ALCS, then the winner steamrolls the NL champs.

The Nats/Cards fans canít really cheer for either team. Both Yanke and Astros would crush them in the WS.

After Yanks vs Astros, the WS would just be a formality.

MLB considers it a dynasty -
''Braves' 14 straight division titles should be cheered
Schuerholz-led run from 1991-2005 unlike anything before, or since''

Not sure if what the Seahawks did comes close.

It's not as if the Dodgers don't have quality players with enough playoff experience to get over the hump. They also played the very teams they will play in Oct.

Not a fan but I'm guessing Dodgers held their own vs those teams during the reg season ?
