This date in the MLB, December 3rd, 1968 It was a busy two days (December 2nd and 3rd) for the Cardinals on the trading block with the team making deals with the Red Sox and Padres. The Redbirds send infielder *** Schofield to Boston in exchange for right-hander Gary Waslewski and also traded third baseman Ed Spiezio, outfielder Ron Davis, backstop Dan Breeden, and pitching prospect Phil Knuckles for right-hander Dave Giusti. A lifelong Red Sox fan, *** "Ducky" Schofield wanted to sign with the Boston Red Sox but the club had just signed some other expensive players, including shortstop Don Buddin. The best offer, as it turned out, came from the St. Louis Cardinals. Scouts Joe Monahan and Walter Shannon made the 18-year-old Schofield - shortstop, the Cardinals’ first bonus baby when they signed him to a $40,000 bonus contract in June 1953. He played for the Cardinals until he was traded in 1958 and played for them again after the Cardinals won the 1967 World Series. The World Series Champion Cardinals . ...

San Francisco -- Madison Bumgarner proudly accepted the Most Valuable Player trophy for the National League Championship Series on Thursday after the San Francisco Giants' 6-3, World Series-clinching win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Will the St. Louis Cardinals ever win a World Series in spite of manager Mike Matheny?
San Francisco (AP) — Travis Ishikawa hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, sending the San Francisco Giants to the World Series with a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. These every-other-year Giants clinched the NL Championship Series in Game 5 and now will face the Royals in an all wild-card Fall Classic that begins Tuesday night in Kansas City. Pablo Sandoval singled to start the ninth against Michael Wacha, making his first appearance of the postseason for the Cardinals. After an out, Brandon Belt walked to bring up Ishikawa, who drove a 2-0 pitch into the elevated seats in right field. Ishikawa hit the first game-ending homer in NLCS history. And it was the first time a homer sent the Giants into the World Series since perhaps the most famous drive ever in baseball — Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard 'Round the World" in a 1951 playoff. Ishikawa knew right away on his first career postseason homer, raising his right arm into the air as he watched his ball sail in ...
Image of the Day The Giants Win the Pennant... For the third time in five years the San Francisco Giants are going to the World Series, after Travis Ishikawa ended the NLCS with a three run Walk Off Home Run. Leading the St. Louis Cardinals three games to one, the Giants who usually relied on small ball to build their lead, got a power surge as Joe Panik gave them an early 2-1 lead after three innings. The Cardinals would answer with two runs in the fourth inning and held a 3-2 lead until the eighth inning, when Michael Morse tied the game with a solo blast. After the Cardinals left the bases loaded in the ninth inning, the Giants quickly got two runners on against Michael Wacha. With one out, Wacha served up the faithful pitch as Ishikawa deposited the ball into the Rightfield stands. The Giants will now face the Kansas City Royals in a matchup of Wild Card teams, with Game 1 at Kaufman Stadium on Tuesday.
Me These SF Giants are true sons of anarchy and, somehow, they’re going back to the World Series:
IN OTHER NEWS: yes, I have plenty to say, but just keep a lot of it to myself. Besides the fact that the St. Louis Cardinals are NOT going to the World Series this year, I had a VERY good time last night. I managed to watch the DEMISE of a St. Louis team in WALK-OFF fashion; I did VERY well in my pool league (AND WE WON LAST NIGHT! YEAH BUDDY!); and the Patriots won last night's Thursday Night Football game against the Jets by blocking a potential game-winning field goal. LIFE IS GOOD! LOL
After G5 one wonders: Can the ever win the World Series in spite of Mike Matheny?
Q. What do you call 25 guys watching the World Series? A. The St. Louis
Have I mentioned that (another) successful team to "model" is the San Francisco Giants -- three World Series appearances in five years after beating the other highly successful "model" club, St. Louis Cardinals 4 games to 1. ~ Mike
Dear St. Louis Cardinals, Thank you for the exciting season! The fans are entertained and loyal.. You deliver the kind of baseball , that has made it America's favorite pastime! See you next year! As far as the World Series..Lets Go Kansas City Royals!!!
It's been a total domination for the San Francisco sports over the city of St. Louis: Saturday, San Francisco Giants over St. Louis Cardinals, Sunday, it was the Cardinals, Monday in football, it was the San Francisco 49ers over the St. Louis Rams, and the next 3 days in baseball, the Giants in 3 straight and on to the World Series!
With San Francisco's come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night — bringing the series to 4-1 — it looks like the Kansas City Royals will likely play the Giants in the 2014 World Series. Actor Paul Rudd, who grew up in the Kansas City area, was at Wednesday's gam…

As you can tell from my cover and profile pics it is one of my favorite times of the year! The Playoffs are underway and soon it will be time for the MLB World Series. Who will win the playoffs and be in the Fall Classic? Who will win it all? What are your thoughts? American League: Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals or Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. National League: Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals or Washington Nationals. Definitely a lot of possibilities. We could have an East Coast series featuring the Orioles and the Nationals.We could have another I-70 series featuring the Royals and the Cardinals or we can have a West Coast series with the Angels and either the cross town rivals Dodgers or the Giants.too many possibilities to calculate...
GIBSON STRIKES OUT 17 IN WORLD SERIES (THC) Today in history OCT 2 1968 St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Bob Gibson strikes out 17 Detroit Tigers in the first game of the World Series, breaking Sandy Koufax’s record for the most strikeouts in a Series game. Though the Cards ended up losing the Series in seven games, Gibson pitched three and struck out an unprecedented 35 batters.

The 1968 World Series winners the Detroit Tigers did exactly this to the St Louis Cardinals.
Awesome trip. I will never forget the moment spent at Fenway Park in Boston to watch the Boston Red Sox play at home against the St. Louis Cardinals . Game 6 of the World Series and the Red Sox won the World Series. The last time they won the World Series at home was 95 years ago (1918). Fenway Park was built in 1912, the same year my father Albert a Vincent was born. For me it was sentimental as my father had passed away in 2007 and I missed him a lot.

Some unique World Series/Postseason notes- In 2007, the Colorado Rockies went undefeated in the Division and League Championship Series until being swept in 4 games by the Boston Red Sox. The Rockies ended the regular season winning 13 of their last 14 games including a one game playoff against San Diego. Losing a single game from Sept. 16th until October 24th. In 2004, the St. Louis Cardinals lost the World Series to the Boston Red Sox, while still winning 105 games in the regular season. The most victories by a team to not win a World Series. Post Wild Card era, the team that played the fewest games en route to a World Series win is the 2005 Chicago White Sox. Sweeping the Red Sox in Division play and the Astros in the World Series, a single loss to the Angels in the LCS prevented them from a post season sweep. The most postseason games played is shared by the 2011 Rangers (Lost WS), 2011 Cardinals (Won WS), and 1997 Indians (Lost WS) playing 18 games in a single post season. In 2009, Ryan Howard struck ...
The 19th annual Grizzly Golf Classic was a roaring success. 50 teams of golfers, including the sandbaggers pictured below, whacked the ball all over the course to raise more than $22,000 for Missouri State University-West Plains. Left to right (I think)... Left: Hometown baseball great, Bill Virdon (left in photo), comes home to play with his buddies every year. Bill was the Rookie of the Year with the St. Louis Cardinals, starting center fielder in the Pirates 1960 World Series victory over the Yankees, and is the only manager to be named Manager of the Year in both the American League and National League. He's a class gentleman too. Center: Larry Duffel and sons have a new outfit every year. This time, on the 70th anniversary of D Day, it was "God Bless the USA!" Right: If someone had yelled "Is there a doctor in the house?" these three would have come running. Looks like my own doc could have applied the anesthesia with his Bill Virdon autographed bat, although we had an anesthesiologist and surg ...
If you’re a St. Louis Cardinals fan, you may not believe what you are about to hear from former second baseman Tom Herr who played on three Cardinals World Series teams in the 1980s.

Wrigley Field. The 1935 World Series featured the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago Cubs, with the Tigers winning in six games. The Tigers won despite losing the services of first baseman Hank Greenberg. The Cubs had won 21 consecutive games in September (still a record as of 2013), eventually taking the National League pennant by four games over the defending World Series Champions, the St. Louis Cardinals.
Seeing the St.Louis Cardinals actually win the World Series this year would be great!

During a 17-year big league career (1966–1982), Smith appeared in 1,987 games, hit 314 Home Runs and batted .287. He was a switch-hitter who threw right-handed. In his prime, he had one of the strongest throwing arms of any outfielder in the big leagues. Smith played at least 70 games in 13 different seasons, and in every one of those 13 seasons, his team had a winning record. Smith grew up in Los Angeles, California. He won the International League batting title in 1966 with a .320 average while playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was called up to the Major Leagues late in that season and played for the Boston Red Sox (1966–73), St. Louis Cardinals (1974–76), Los Angeles Dodgers (1976–81) and San Francisco Giants (1982). Smith appeared in four World Series, including during his rookie 1967 season for the Red Sox, and three (1977, 1978 and 1981) for the Dodgers. He hit three ...
Opening Day of Baseball was great, hope to see my St. Louis Cardinals back to the World Series.
Roger Eugene Maris (Sep 10, 1934 – Dec 14, 1985) American professional baseball player. He was a Major League Baseball right fielder for 12 seasons and on four teams, from 1957 through 1968. Maris hit a Major League record 61 Home Runs during the 1961 season for the New York Yankees, breaking Babe Ruth's single-season record of 60 Home Runs in 1927. Maris began his professional career in 1953, and reached the Major Leagues in 1957 with the Cleveland Indians. He was traded to the Kansas City Athletics during the 1958 season, and to the Yankees after the 1959 season. With the Yankees, Maris was a two-time American League Most Valuable Player (1960 and 1961), All-Star (1959–1962), and Gold Glove winner (1960). Maris ended his career with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1967 and 1968. Maris appeared in seven World Series, five as a member of the Yankees and two with the Cardinals. His accomplishment of 61 Home Runs in a season came back to the forefront in 1998, when the Home Run record was broken by Mark McGw ...

Unfortunately the St. Louis club will come up short and the Yankees will win their 28th World Series, The Captain Derek Jeter will take home the mvp award and will be allowed to keep the World Series trophy in his living room.

Since it's Opening Day I'm going on record now and saying the St. Louis Cardinals will win the World Series in 6 games against the Detroit Tigers.
Just a tidbit for Opening Day! The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the St. Louis Browns in the 1944 World Series with all six games being played at Sportsman's Park. The Series was also known as the "Trolley Series," "Streetcar Series," or the "St. Louis Showdown." Coincidentally, this World Series was played the same year Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer released the musical film Meet Me in St. Louis.

My prediction for this baseball season,the World Series :St Louis Cardinals vs Who cares 4-0
Basically Opening Day of baseball starts tomorrow!! St. Louis Cardinals gonna win the World Series
In 2011 the St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series followed by Kentucky winning the NCAA title in the spring of 2012. Here's hoping we can reverse that - Kentucky win NCAA next week, followed by another Cardinals World Series this fall!
I will take the Tampa Bay Rays over the St. Louis Cardinals in World Series
Will bet $1K to any taker the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series this year
Obviously the biggest off season move for the St. Louis Cardinals was the trade of home town hero and 2011 World Series MVP David Freese to the Angels in exchange for Peter Bourjous. On paper the deal looks to benefit the Birds over the Halos! Bourjous has speed at the top of the lineup that they have been lacking for quite sometime, and as long as he can stay healthy can get enough AB's, he will challenge John Jay for time in CF for sure. He's a Cardinals kind of guy..."gritty gutty white guy", and he will help the fans to put Freese in their rear view mirrors! Matt Carpenter moves to his "natural" position of 3B to take the place of Freese.
My friend Bob Gibson is another Omaha history maker. Bob's brother Josh Gibson was my first baseball coach. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Gibson overcame childhood illness to excel in youth sports, particularly basketball and baseball. After briefly playing under contract to both the basketball Harlem Globetrotters team and the St. Louis Cardinals organization, Gibson decided to only continue playing baseball professionally. Once becoming a full-time starting pitcher in July 1961, Gibson began experiencing an increasing level of success, earning his first All-Star appearance in 1962. Gibson won two of three games he pitched in the 1964 World Series, then won 20 games in season for the first time in 1965. Gibson also pitched three complete game victories in the 1967 World Series. Robert "Bob" Gibson (born November 9, 1935) played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the St. Louis Cardinals (1959–1975). Nicknamed "Gibby" and "Hoot", Gibson tallied 251 wins, 3,117 strikeouts, and a 2.91 earned run aver ...

Louis Criger (Feb 3, 1872 in Elkhart, Indiana – May 14, 1934 in Tucson, Arizona) Major League Baseball player for the Cleveland Spiders (1896–1898), St. Louis Cardinals (1899–1900), Boston Americans/Red Sox (1901–1908), St. Louis Browns (1909, 1912), and the New York Highlanders (1910). Criger became the first Opening Day catcher in Boston American League franchise's history.

Joseph Paul "Joe" Torre (/ˈtɔri/; born July 18, 1940) is an American Major League Baseball executive and former baseball manager and player. A nine-time All-Star, he played in Major League Baseball as a catcher, first baseman and a third baseman for the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, and the St. Louis Cardinals.[1] After his retirement as a player in 1977, he managed those same three teams along with the New York Yankees before ending his managerial career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011; he was also a player-manager of the Mets for a brief period in 1977. Torre's most successful stint as a manager came with the Yankees, from 1996 to 2007. The Yankees reached the post-season each year and won ten American League East Division titles, six American League pennants, four World Series titles, and compiled a .605 winning percentage overall. With 2,326 wins, he is currently ranked fifth on the list of Major League Baseball all-time managerial wins.
THE WINNING TEAM ,with Doris Day and Ronald Reagan trailer: The Winning Team is 1952 film directed by Lewis Seiler.

A look at some of the notable figures the sports world said goodbye to in 2013: Stan Musial Stan the Man died at age 92 on Jan. 19. The three-time National League MVP won three World Series rings and was named to 24 all-star teams with the St. Louis Cardinals. The Hall Of Famer is so revered in St. Louis, there are two statues of him outside Busch Stadium. Earl Weaver The colourful, volatile former manager of the Baltimore Orioles died of a heart attack at age 82 on Jan. 19, during a team cruise in the Caribbean. The Orioles made the World Series four times under Weaver, winning in 1970. He had many highlight-reel run-ins with umpires and was ejected more than 90 times. In 1996, he was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

All-Star SS Peralta, Cardinals Reach 4-Year Deal by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS November 24, 2013 6:48 PM Free agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed on a four-year contract, giving the All-Star a fresh start after his Biogenesis drug suspension last summer. The Cardinals filled a need by getting a top-hitting shortstop a month after losing the World Series in six games to Boston. Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso, while generally good fielders, are light hitters. The deal was expected to be worth more than $50 million. "We are pleased to announce that Jhonny has agreed to terms and I know he is equally excited to be joining the Cardinals," general manager John Mozeliak said in a statement. "Jhonny is among the game's top offensive shortstops, he's a steady defender and he has experience playing for a contender. He gives us proven veteran experience and brings balance and versatility to our everyday lineup. " But the move drew a different reaction from a couple other big leaguers. "I ...
MLB announces postseason shares New York -- A full postseason share for the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox was worth $307,323, down from a record $370,873 for the San Francisco Giants last year. The players' pool dropped to $62.7 million from a record $65.4 million, Major League Baseball said Thursday. Boston split $22.6 million, voting 58 full shares, partial shares equivalent to another 14.9 and 21 cash awards. A full share on the NL champion St. Louis Cardinals was worth $228,300, down from $284,275 last year for AL champion Detroit. To put in perspective the relative value of the bonus money, consider that for a player like Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava, whose 2013 salary was $505,500, his World Series share amounts to a 60 percent bonus for an extra month of work. But for an established star like World Series MVP David Ortiz, the "bonus" money in some ways represents a paycut. Ortiz earned $14.5 million in salary last season. Divided equally over 162 games, that's $89,506.17 per game. But a pl ...

The Los Angeles Dodgers made a great run at a World Series berth in 2013 but fell short in six NLCS games to the St. Louis Cardinals. This writer has detailed a lot of what I find wrong with Mattingly as a manager of the Dodgers. Bear in mind, this guy has covered only the playoffs. The season was pure torture to a baseball purist. The Dodgers played some excellent baseball in the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves and had great pitching throughout the postseason, but they could not overcome a lack of offense and injuries in the NLCS. However, one obstacle they had to face throughout the postseason and regular season was poor managerial decisions by skipper Don Mattingly. Donnie Baseball, who had a one-year contract option automatically vest with the NLDS victory, is looking for a long-term deal as he currently sits on a very hot seat. While the club went on an historic 42-8 run during the season and came extremely close to its first World Series berth in a quarter-century, this past postseason is a perfect ...

Boston Red Sox star David “Big Papi” Ortiz, MVP of the 2013 World Series, will talk about his team’s exciting victory over the St. Louis Cardinals when he visits the "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday (11:35 p.m., CBS). This will be Ortiz’s first talk show appearance since the team’s World Championship win.
Miami Dolphin tackle, Jonathon Martin, flipped out and left the team after a bullying prank was played on him. Apparently bullying is not unusual in pro sports. Just in the World Series, the Boston Red Sox taunted the St. Louis Cardinals from the dugout by yelling the Cardinals play like a bunch of Chicago Cubs.
Midway through the World Series, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox would win the MVP. Even if St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny wasn't going to endorse it with the Series going … Continue reading →

Is Today One Of The Craziest Days In Boston History? (AP) — Sports championships aren’t rare in Boston anymore, and security officials are drawing on what went right — and wrong — during recent victory celebrations as the Red Sox look to claim another title. The Red Sox return to Fenway Park on Wednesday needing one win in the next two games against the St. Louis Cardinals to win their third World Series since 2004. Meanwhile, police are also dealing with a visit by President Obama, who’s stopping in town hours earlier Wednesday to discuss his health care reform. City officials on Tuesday said they’re confident both events will go off smoothly. But they’re tightening parking restrictions, increasing police presence and asking the public to help unclog streets and keep any Red Sox victory celebrations safe. “We’ve had a lot of great success. … We’ve had some challenges and some tragedies,” said Boston Police Superintendent-in-chief Daniel Linsky. “We’re hoping that fans have gro ...
Hey Bill...I guess you saw this: "The headline from Monday night is that the Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals by the score of 3-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven World Series." Yeah.If it couldn't be the Phillies, (Yeah...still sad about them!) then I'm okay with the Red Sox taking the Championship !
Cards' arrival to Boston delayed October 29, 2013 BOSTON -- Mechanical issues with their plane have delayed the St. Louis Cardinals' trip to Boston in advance of Game 6 of the World Series. As the sun set in Boston on Tuesday and the Red Sox went through their final workout of the season at Fenway Park, the Cardinals remained stuck on the runway back home. Manager Mike Matheny even did his scheduled news conference with reporters at Fenway via phone while sitting aboard the plane. "Yeah, we've been sitting on the runway for a while," he said. "But everybody seems to be doing all right. We're fortunate that our club allows our families to travel with us. We have some younger kids. But I'm impressed with how everybody has handled it. Fortunately we have plenty of food, snacks for the kids, lots of entertainment with on-board movies, and everybody travels with all their high-tech stuff. Most of these kids are pretty happy that they're not in school right now, and it's a great way to spend a day, and no compl ...

Tim Mccarver: the St. Louis Cardinals need to win the next two games in Boston if they want to win the World Series
October 26, 2006. St. Louis Cardinals are in Game 4 of the World Series. We are playing the Detroit Tigers at Busch Stadium. I was not at the game. As a matter of fact, I wasn't even watching the game on tv. There was something much more monumental going in in my life that night. Family members were gathered into a small bedroom in a circle around a bed singing gospel hymns--praying --and sharing memories while in that bed lay my 'Pop'. He was getting ready to leave this old world. He had run his race well and taught us how to really live. (a Christian life). Now he was teaching us how to die. Few people leave such an impression on not only his family but to all who knew him. We did say goodbye that night. That was seven years ago. Unbelievable how time flies . By the way, the Cardinals took the World Series title the next night. Cardinal Nation was ecstatic. But, I can say without a doubt that the title Pop won on October 26, 2006 far outshines that! Missing you, Pop, but glad you are home!!

Nothing like a Bad News Bears reference! Nice running and fielding in game 2 Mr. Kozma or should we call you Tanner?! Thank goodness we don't have to wait a week for more baseball, but I am thankful these travel days are giving me a nice break in the drama! The postseason is exhausting! Jim Caple, “The beauty of baseball is there is no waiting around for a week after a loss. Every day there is a new game. Every day brings a new opportunity to redeem yourself. Yes, I mean you, Pete Kozma. In his World Series debut Wednesday, Kozma played about as poorly as possible for a player without having ‘Chico's Bail Bonds’ sewn onto the back of his jersey. With a .217 average and one Home Run this season, Kozma is in the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup primarily for his defense, but in the first inning, on his first fielding chance in a World Series game, he dropped a routine toss from second baseman Matt Carpenter. So what should have been an inning-ending double play instead was a game-deciding erro .. ...
3, 4 and 34 display their ability, leadership and value to their teams as the St. Louis Cardinals take Game 2 of the 2013 World Series. With the series tied at one-game apiece the two teams head to St. Louis for Games 3,4, and 5. - Carlos Beltran returned to the Cardinals line-up with 2 hits after crashing into the right field wall the night before. As Beltran and the mighty Fenway Park right field met, he reached up and robbed David Ortiz of a Grand Slam. In making a great play he banged-up his ribs. # 4 – Yadier Molina, show his leadership behind the plate and demonstrated why he’s the best catcher in baseball. His guidance of three Cardinals pitches ages 22, 22 and 23 has put the Cardinals back in the series. – David Ortiz, when a man from Dominican Republic can get 38,436 New Englanders yelling in harmony “PAPI-PAPI-PAPI” you know you have reached LOS MAGNIFICO stage. In the sixth inning Ortiz hit a two-run Home Run to give Boston a 2-1 lead, which erupted into a PAPI cheer. LOS Magnificos . ...

This season's World Series match up stirs up memories of my youth. Grab a cup of something warm. I'm gonna be awhile, here. It was 1967 and I as about to become a baseball fan forever. My dad thought his young boy was ready. Ready to begin the journey to understand the nuances and mysteries of our nation's finest game. Ready to learn how to fill out a scorecard. I attended my first game at Tiger stadium that summer. Coming through the tunnel of the upper deck, I had never seen grass so green. He sat me down one night and continued my baseball education through its greatest event, the World Series. That year, the Boston Red Sox were up against the St. Louis Cardinals. As an American League family, we would root for the Red Sox, I was told. Carl Yastrzemski was the best player on the Sox. "The best player in ALL OF BASEBALL!" "MVP", I heard him say. "Triple Crown" entered my vocabulary. To this day, when I hear those words, I think of Yastrzemski, not horse racing. "Watch his technique", my dad said. "Not p ...

wow, Detroit just quit. Again. So this means the St. Louis Cardinals will be the 2013 World Series Champions, I look forward to the correct red team winning. The Cardinals have the better pitching, hitting, and bullpen, so it is theirs to take. What a race day! Scott Dixon takes his third Indycar championship, once again denying Helio Castroneves, who still has never won the title.

Last night on CNN, of all people heard Ann Coulter say "she saw no GOP favorite in the Republican/Tea Party to run for President of the United States in 2016. She did catch me off guard when she said that out of the Democratic Party, favorite was Barack Obama. Says if Hillary Clinton decides to run in 2016, she still would fear President Obama. He can only serve two terms as President but she knows this man still would have the voice of the people ( Black, White, Hispanics/Latinos, and most importantly the young people) and he would be a tremendous asset to Hillary Clinton if she goes for the first woman President. I particularly do not care for Ann Coulter (racist, speaks before she thinks and just talks stupid) but last night she made this a good talking point. Made my night after watching the St. Louis Cardinals put a choke hold on the Dodgers (9 - 0) and we are on to the World Series, again!
This morning I would like to thank Albert Pujols for chosing to leave our great St. Louis Cardinals organization, because without this bold move on his part we never would have gotten Carlos Beltran (signed 2 weeks after Pujols left) and Michael Wacha (the compensatory draft pick the cardinals received from losing Puljols). Now onto the World Series we go!
Michael Wacha throws seven shutout innings, to help the St. Louis Cardinals to the 2013 World Series!
Ex-Aggie Michael Wacha pitched his secnd brilliant win in six games of playoff to move the St.Louis Cardinals into the World Series.

The Cardinals SPANKED The Dodgers in Game 6. I made a bet with Julie Baron and Lisa Fisher, Kollaboration Univ. of Missouri, Cardinals fans, that I have to wear something with St. Louis Cardinals on it and post it on FB. IF anyone has any Cardinals gear, LMK so I can borrow it. Otherwise I'm buying it and donating it. No excuses. Cardinals were the better team. More than anything, I am thoroughly blown away by WACHA. That guy is the real deal and the future. Cardinals picked him in the draft and there were 6 to 7 other pitchers drafted before him. He beat Cy Young Award winner this year, Clayton Kershaw... TWICE in the postseason. I'm really stunned how we lost. I went to every Dodger playoff game and had an amazing time these past two weeks. I really believed we were going all the way. I even bought one World Series ticket and was going to take Solomon. I'm also really sad that Hyun Jin won't get to pitch a game 7 to take us to the World Series. That would have been amazing for The Dodge ...
And so Yasiel Puig & the Dodgers, unfortunately, don't go to the World Series this year after losing to the St. Louis Cardinals.
31 years ago today my son Michael David came into this world and has made a big impression from day one weighing in at 10lbs. 3 oz. He was born at 3:00pm when all the nurses are changing shifts, so everyone had come in and see my beautiful little *** . He was ironically born in the middle of 1982 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers – Cardinal won in 7 games, because he is a huge baseball fan to this day. Go Blue!! Michael you continue to make me so proud. You are a true gentleman, smart, witty, patient, loving, gentle and kind. A wonderful son, great sibling, loving husband, incredible father and a true friend. You always look at life in a positive way no matter what it throws at you. My wish for you is that all you dreams come true. Here’s to a wonderful year ahead! I love you googles. Mom

Cardinals on the brink of elimination. Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals, 2013 World Series Champions.
St. Louis buried Pittsburgh tonight. I've never been a Pirates fan although they produced one of the most famous ball cards ever, the Honus Wagner 1909-11 T206, an example of which in pristine condition sold this year for $2.1 million! And, I will NEVER forgive Maseroski for hitting that walk-off Home Run in the 7th game of the 1960 World Series against Mickey Mantle's Yankees. By the same token, I could care less about the St. Louis Cardinals although Dizzy Dean could always put a smile on my face with the way he mangled the English language and the classiest guy to ever play the game was hands down, Stan the man Musial. I guess I just love baseball in October!
Yesterday in Baseball history: The Detroit Tigers helped set a World Series record, with seventeen of them striking out against Bob Gibson and the St. Louis Cardinals. How's that for a legacy, Jer Dyck, Sally Dyck?
I want to tell everyone about a special day in my life. Today, 2 Oct, but many years ago in 1968. I remember this because it was my parents anniversary, Instead of going out, my Mom and Dad stayed home and watched a World Series game. Dad bought Mom some yellow roses. Mom made us a meal of fried chicken and mashed potatoes and veggies and then cooked popcorn in an old Club Aluminum pot and Dad went to get us some Pepsi's, Dr. Pepper's, and him some 7 Up. Mom's beloved St. Louis Cardinals played my beloved Detroit Tigers. We watched Bob Gibson strike out about 18 Tigers and win a game to keep the Cardinals alive in the Series. My Dad teased her that it would not be enough and that the Tigers would win the Series. Sure enough, Denny McClain, who won 30 or 31 games that year, won two games in the Series and the Tigers became World Champs. I was 14 and my Mom would feign anger for about three weeks or a month after that and would not talk to me until I took off my Tigers cap. Life was good in the Ha ...

Happy Birthday to my son Michael. Some things that were happening the year you were born. Time magazine man of the year was Lyndon B. Johnson, # 1 billboard song The Letter by The Box Tops, Super Bowl champs Green Bay Packers, cost of Super Bowl Ad 42,000, World Series Champs St. Louis Cardinals, Federal debt was 340 Billion , unemployment was 3.8, First class stamp was .05 cents, and Middle class household income was $7,143.00.

Listening to the incomparable Dinah Washington as I write this. Four great things happened on todays date in baseball. 1. On September 21, 1934 the Dean Brothers shut out the Dodgers 16-0. In the first game of a Twin Bill, Dizzy Dean tosses a two hitter beating the Trolley Dodgers 13-0. In Game 2 Paul "Daffy" Dean throws a no-hitter beating Da Bums 3-0. The Dean Brothers would lead the St. Louis Cardinals to the N.L. pennant and beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 to win the 1934 World Series. 2. 9/21/1952. The Boston play their last home game is Boston before leaving for the 1953 season in Milwaukee. Dodger Catcher Roy Campanella hits the last homer in Braves Field to seal the 7-2 win for the Dodgers. Attendance may have been a problem for the Braves as ony 8,822 fans attend the game but it was the second largest crowd of the year. 3. On September 21, 1956, at Fenway Park, the N.Y. Yankees lose to the Sawx 13-7. The "Bombers" set a record by stranding 20 base runners in a nine inning game. 4. On Sep ...
Geez, 45 seems so long ago...I was all of 12 years old. All 7 games were day games (mostly 1 pm starts), if you can imagine that. I still remember coming home from school on the day of the 7th game and turning on the TV just in time to see Cardinals catcher Tim Mccarver (yes, THAT Tim Mccarver) foul pop-out to Tigers catcher Bill Freehan for the 3rd out of the ninth inning, for a Tigers 4-1 win, and completing an amazing Tigers comeback from down 3 games to 1, to winning the Series, 4 games to 3 over the heavily favored St. Louis Cardinals. It was an incredible World Series on so many levels and I was probably the happiest 12 year old in Burlington, NJ on October 10th, 1968! lol
I had a very strange dream last night: I was signed as a late-season roster addition to be starting Left Fielder for the Colorado Rockies in the World Series, joined the team just in time for Game 1 on the road against the St.Louis Cardinals. I'm not sure which was the most incredible part (and nevermind that they're both NL teams): that the sad-sack Rox have ANY chance to make the World Series? Or that I'd be in the starting lineup!
On This Day In Baseball History: 1878 - Fredrick W. Thayer patents the catcher's mask. He is the captain of Harvard University Baseball Club. 1880 - The Boston Red Caps cut the price of season tickets from $14 to $12 after the team failed to win its third straight National League pennant last season. 1885 - The Western League is officially formed, with Indianapolis, Kansas City, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Toledo and Omaha as the original clubs. It will last until June 23rd. 1903 - Charles (Chick) Hafey is born in Berkeley, California. Hafey will make his Major League debut in 1924 with the St. Louis Cardinals. During a 13-year career with the Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds, Hafey will hit .317, including a National League batting crown with .349 in 1931, and will be part of two World Series Championships in 1926 and 1931. Hafey will enter the Hall Of Fame in 1971. 1912 - In a change of outfielders, the Boston Braves send Mike Donlin to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Vin Campbell. After one season with Pittsburgh, D ...
Dear Stan, Unlike other fans who are born a member of Cardinal Nation, I’m a relatively recent convert — joining in 2000. One of the best parts of my conversion, beyond enjoying the team’s success during the past 13 seasons, has been learning the rich and impressive history of the St. Louis Cardinals. Which of course means learning more about you. And with your 92nd birthday coming up on Wednesday, I wanted to say thank you. The numbers were the most obvious part to learn. Twenty-two year career, 24-time All Star. Three-time World Series Champion. Three-time MVP. And 3,630 hits — with 1,815 at home and 1,815 on the road. That perfect symmetry — what could be better? Speaking of perfect, the trip to Busch Stadium in April 2000 that cemented my decision to become a Cardinals fan began — not surprisingly — at your statue. Seeing the inscription of the famous Ford Frick quote prompted me to scribble it down on a piece of paper in my purse … just in case I somehow would forget the words (which, ...
When the St. Louis Cardinals gave Lance Berkman a one-year, $12 million extension prior to 2012, it was a gesture of good will and thanks for his above-pay performance that helped send the team to their eleventh World Series Championship. After an injury-ridden 2012, Berkman hit free agency once aga...
