the st. louis cardinals are down 3-1 in the nlcs and one loss away from elimination.
History isn’t on the Cardinals side. According to CBS Sports 920 Stat Wizard Brian Hoffman, in the four times it faced a 3-1 deficit (’43, ’00, ’02, ’05), it’s never come back.
But according to The Morning After’s Jim Hayes, the team still looks as one that thinks it will advance.
“This team, and it is cliche, I didn’t sense that they were, ‘ehh it’s over,’ and I’ve seen that in the past. I didn’t see any of it, I really didn’t,” Hayes said.
The team’s fate now lies in the hands – and arm – of ace Adam Wainwright, who has been un-ace-like during the 2014 post season.
“You don’t really know what you’re going to get from Adam Wainwright, and I interviewed him yesterday. He said ‘I’ve pitched well when I didn’t have my best stuff, and I can do it again,'” said Hayes.
Hayes discussed several more Cardinals topics, including his thoughts on the team’s chances the rest of the way. Listen to the whole thing here:
