Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Tis better to sneak in or cruise in ? That is the question

2003 Cubs mid season aquisitions energize the club(like a true lead off hitter) we get into the playoffs just barely as a hot team that has just caught fire. 2008 dominate the National league and you know what has just happened. Lou's Mariners. This years' Angels.. This year the Dodgers have a massive mid-season aquisition that super charges the club they just get in and blow out the stronger(on paper anyways) team. Why have so many wild card teams done so well? What happened to Reed Johnson and for God's sake somebody tell me where the frosty malts are!
