Oh okay. Sandy "Mr. Politician" Alderson insists it is not a publicity stunt of some sort, but that would be the most logical thing. Amusing but not sure how much it all matters. More importantly, with them due to play each other, Cards & SF lost while Mets won, so there is almost (Cards played two less games, SF one) a three-way tie for Wild Card. Nice.Update: As Thursday Night Football went on, Cards lost & Mets statistically has #2 Wild Card.
