The Dodgers and Cardinals have a rich playoff history, just like we do here at Sons of Steve Garvey. In anticipation of this afternoon's game, we've dug back into the archives to excavate some of our Dodgers-Cardinals coverage, from the 2009 NLDS in which the Dodgers won the series, 3-0:

I think we may have met the Cardinals in last year's NLCS, but frankly I've blocked that series out of my memory.
