Assuming the Dodgers can not blow a 3 run lead with 1 out in the bottom of the ninth against the worst team in baseball win this morning and clinch the division title, we're left with a few options. If the Braves continue this tear, they could end up winning the WC which means we would play them. If not, its either the Cards or the Phils.
Well you can't always look at regular season match-ups as a true preview for a series, they are still a good thing to look at.
The Cardinals have absolutely owned us this year. We went 2-5 against them scoring 19 runs in 7 games, 12 of which came in the two wins. To face a rotation of Chris Carpenter/Adam Wainwright/Joel Peneiro is pretty scary.
The Phillies we did a bit better against this year, going 4-3. This was of course before they added Cliff Lee, but also before Brad Lidge took a huge dive. If Hamels is as lights out as last year, this team is even scarier in the post-season.
The Braves we went 3-4 against this year, but they don't scare me as much. Lowe owned us, but I think we have the better team and the upper hand.
Leave your "why" in the comments.
