Out of the 10 teams on this list, the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals may best represent resiliency in a team.
On Aug. 24, the Atlanta Braves had a commanding 10.5 game lead over the Cardinals for the NL Wild Card. The Cards swept the Braves at Busch Stadium in the middle of September, and on the final day of the season, St. Louis overtook the lead and won the Wild Card with a 90-72 record.
The Cards went 23-9 over their final 32 games, despite major deficits in both the NL Central and Wild Card. That's just the beginning of their resilient run.
In the first round of the postseason, they shocked the heavily favored Philadelphia Phillies, who won 102 games in the regular season, in five games.
In the NLCS, they beat the Milwaukee Brewers in six games, winners of the NL Central.
And in one of the greatest World Series of all-time, which included a comeback for the ages in Game 6 with the Cardinals down to their final strike of the World Series in both the ninth and 10th innings, the Cardinals beat the two-time reigning American League Champions' Texas Rangers in seven games.
From a double-digit deficit in late-August to World Series Champs after being down to their final strike twice. That's resiliency.
