A final day win by the Cardinals means no baseball today.

It was all up to the Cardinals as to whether or not there would be extra games played on Monday, as the St. Louis club inched towards a postseason berth and several different combinations of wins and losses might mean a double-header would need to be played against the Detroit Tigers to decide their fate for the season.

But the team managed a win on Sunday against the Brewers (I know, Cubs fans aren’t cheering and many would have relished a chance to see more Cards losses), and the win locked in their place in the 16-team postseason, no extra games needed.

Now with the records in place and the brackets aligned, it’s time for us to get ready for one of the most truly bizarre postseasons in baseball history.

Let the (literal) games begin on Tuesday.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
