"Official" 2011 St. Louis Cardinals Thread

This is so unreal. We were dead. No hope. A season over. Somehow, someway we find some team chemistry and squeak into the playoffs on the last day of the season.

Only to find us facing one of the best pitching staffs assembled in years with home field advantage. We somehow, someway find a way to beat the best pitcher in baseball on the road in an elimination game.

We have to go on the road and beat the team with the best home record in baseball. A team who mortgaged their future to make this run .We somehow, someway find a way to beat them on the road and make our 18th World series trip.

We take game 1, we give away game 2 and home field advantage. Albert goes off for probably the best performance in World Series history and we take game 3 easily. Games 4 & 5 our bats fall asleep, Phone gate happens and its not looking too good.

Game 6, one of the best baseball games of all time and it takes place in a season ending go home game. Cardinals are down 2 runs in their final chance on the season, twice. They are down to their final strike of the season, twice. They give up a 2 run homer in extra innings. In the bottom of the inning their final 3 batters are a combined 3-26 in the Playoffs and a pitcher because the bench is empty. Somehow, someway they get some runners on and the comeback player of the year drives in the tying run. Mr. Freese hits the walk off home run. We will see you tommorrow night.

Game 7, With our bulldog on the mound pitching on 3 days rest he is able to give us 6 good innings and get us to within 9 outs of our 11 World series title. Texas meltsdown, probably left over from last nights game and its over.

The underdog, come back team who had no business even being in the playoffs wins a World championship. They make movies about events like this in life. Events that you remember even if your not a fan of the sport or team for the rest of your life.

When it is your team.......Priceless

LaRussa said Batista will be the Cards closer on days when Franklin is unavailable.

You've got to be kidding me.

At this point I am pretty much convinced that LaRussa is deliberately sabotaging the team, either out of spite or for monetary gain. Other than him being completely insane, nothing else can explain his actions.

He had 3 Ks yesterday in 2 innings.

He may not have dominating stuff, but I think he'll do a better job than Franklin.

Nope. DirecTv.

And in all honesty, I rarely watch on TV.

Especially today - it's Masters freaking Sunday.

That was one 10 year span in the history of the franchise. In the current financial enviornment, that will never happen again. Evah.

Say these minor leaguers the Roayals have turn into major league players. They still only get 4-5 years of service and thats it. They can't afford to re-sign everyone. We can afford a top 10 payroll and even we can't re-sign everyone.

What do you call the Twins?

The Royals and Rays are trying to be like them.

The Twins have won the Central 6 out of 10 times in the past 10 seasons.

If somehow someway they don't get this turned around this season.....its time to re-build. Mo ain't going anywhere. Thats a pipe dream. A bad season, Larussa may decide to move on. He'll never be fired or asked to leave.

We re-sign Pujols, Waino and Molina to contracts and look what out line up can look like in 2 years. This is financially doable lineup. The only piece we are missing is a SS who can bat lead off.

Gonna be some age in that everyday line up. And your starting pitchers are just as much prospects as what the Royals have coming through.. but keep up the arrogant Cardinals fan act.

Dude, I don't know you. But, If you have been paying attention you would know that I give out love to Royals fans all the time. I have tremendous respect for Royals fans. But the Royals can't consistently play at the same level as the Cardinals. Thats just the economic facts of baseball. The Cardinals can't compete consistently with the Yankees and Red Sox. I'm just pointing out the relaity of baseball economics. It isn't a level playing field.

I heard they were going to move him to 2B because they had Freese and Carpenter to play 3B and no one to play 2B.
