So this just came over the transom a few minutes ago:

Bad news for Cardinals...No team has won any postseason series when their starters failed to go more than 5 IP in any of 1st 5 games (elias)
Oct 15 via webFavoriteRetweetReply

 

It's definitely weird news, that the Cardinals are now five games into the League Championship Series and none of their starters have pitched more than five innings.

But is this really bad news? I mean, considering that they've got a three-run lead in the sixth inning of a game which will, if they win, give them a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series?

It's an unorthodox way to win, to be sure. But so far it's working pretty well.
