In reference to the two letters about the 2014 World Series involving the two wild-card teams, what the letter writers failed to mention was the fact that both teams had to win the wild-card game, then win the pennant series. This involves a total of 12 games in which any opposing team had the opportunity to knock the wild-card teams out of the race.
The teams that faced the Royals and the Giants failed to achieve that goal. If the two letter writers’ teams failed, then writing the letters only sounds like sour grapes because their teams couldn’t handle postseason play and choked. Go, Giants!
