Vapormax 97 Blanche . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. The Year of Tanking sort of turned into the Year of the Mediocre Wild Card Teams. All four wild cards won fewer than 90 games and the four teams collectively won 352, the lowest combined total in the five-year history of the two wild-card era.That, however, doesnt mean one of these teams wont make noise in the postseason. The 2014 World Series was an all-wild-card affair between the 89-win Royals and 88-win Giants. While those were the only wild cards to reach the World Series since 2012, in the one-team wild-card era, seven wild cards reached the World Series between 2002 and 2011 -- with the 2002 Angels, 20003 Marlins, 2004 Red Sox and 2011 Cardinals winning it all.ddddddddddddSome of them had high win totals -- the 2002 Angels won 99 games and the 2004 Red Sox won 98, for example -- but the 2003 Marlins won just 91 games, the 2011 Cardinals and 2007 Rockies won 90 and the 2005 Astros won 89. Id call these sneaky-good teams. One thing they all did during their World Series seasons was to have spurts of dominance; they didnt just plod along at two or three games over .500 each month.
