***OFFICIAL*** 2013 STL Cardinals Thread

From Bernie's column:

People have asked me why we’re not more emotional,” Matheny said in his office after Sunday’s game. “They say that we look subdued, always intense. That our actions are methodical, robotic at times. That’s what got us here. This isn’t the time to change it.”

It’s hard to argue with the manager’s assessment. The Cardinals finished with 97 victories, most by a Cards team since 2005, and tied with Boston for No. 1 in the majors this year.


Their 54-27 showing at Busch Stadium matches the 1985 team for the best single-season home winning percentage (.667) by the Cardinals since 1944.

A postseason theme has emerged, and it echoes the mantra that surfaced before the start of 2013: remember the fall of 2012. Remember falling to San Francisco in the NLCS.


The Cardinals’ veterans still haven’t forgotten. They still aren’t over it. It’s why Matheny resists GM John Mozeliak’s urgings to smile and put on a happier face.


Here's the most impressive aspect of the Cardinals' division championship: they prevailed over two other outstanding teams, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.



The 97-win Cardinals were better this year (regular season) than they were in 2011, when they won 90 games, and 2012, when they won 88.
Here are a few numbers that help put the Cardinals' Central title and No. 1 NL seed in perspective:



* Since MLB switched to a three-division format in each league in 1994, this was only the sixth time that a division had three 90-plus win teams. St. Louis won 97, Pittsburgh 94, and Cincinnati 90.
* Since the format change, this was only the second time that an NL division had three 90-win teams. In 2002 the NL West had Arizona (98 wins), San Francisco (95) and Los Angeles (92).
* The 2013 Cardinals faced more esteemed and difficult competition at the top of the division than any of the division-winning teams managed by Tony La Russa.

The Pirates were hardly pushovers; the Cardinals had to work like mad and kick in with a strong finish to put the division away, and didn't clinch until Game No. 160.



The Cardinals went 9-10 against Pittsburgh this season and were 11-8 vs. Cincinnati.


The Cardinals won only three of 10 games at PNC Park in Pittsburgh and split the 10 games at Cincinnati. The Cardinals were 6-3 against both teams at Busch Stadium.


The Cardinals (1st), Pirates (3rd) and Reds (5th) ranked among the top five in wins in the NL. The three teams were among the top 11 in wins in MLB. All three teams finished in the top five in the majors for best overall ERA, and each were in the top five MLB for best starting-pitching ERA.


The original purpose to this piece was to point out that the Cardinals managed to finish with the league's best record while competing in a division that had three 90-win teams for only the second time in the last 19 years of National League baseball.



The Cardinals really earned this.
Thanks for reading ...

In what reality do you think thats a possiblity? They "supposely" were wanting Taveras and one of our stud pitchers for Profar. A bad year and his value has dopped that bad? Even if that is true, they would hold onto him for at least another year.

If this team tanks, gives up, misses the playoffs he has at least one more really bad year. They don't give up but still lose he has two years or more.

Should have been a 1-2-3 inning. Instead, the Pirates get gifted a run.

And Waino has been absolute shit tonight in his biggest start of the season.

I'm not saying that either is a possibility, I'm saying 1) that's Profar's appropriate value and 2) that's what should happen.

In one of the biggest must win games of the season, Waino, our stopper, has been shit.

We really need to win these next 2. If we come out of this trip with a 1/2 game lead, which we would IIRC with 2 straight wins, would be a coup.

Wainwright hasn't had good stuff for a while either.

Waino, like Yadi, has been overused by Matheny. He seems to favor the horses that blow themselves out over the first few poles of the Kentucky Derby. He's weak willed and unwilling to assert himself, and it is costing the team. I know Waino is your guy, but he doesn't need to be throwing 115 pitches every start. Look at what has happened to Verlander this year.

And that is moronic. Siegrist needs to get the 7th, Rosenthal the 8th, and Mujica the 9th, no matter the score.

Yes, he needs to be done after that DP.


And FFS, someone hit the ball out of the ballpark.

Pirates are playing like. This is game 7 of the world series. The Cards are just going through the motions.
