The St. Louis Cardinals are the World Series champions for the 11th time in history. No other National League team has more. Only the Yankees have more in all of baseball — at an astonishing 26.
The Cardinals made the playoffs on the final day of the season. They were the Wildcard and couldn’t even win their division.
They beat the best-team in baseball, the Phillies in the first round.
They beat the Central Divison’s champion, Milwaukee, in the second round.
They beat the heavily-favorite Texas Rangers in the third round (World Series).
It is how you finish that counts in baseball. Think to the endgame and leave on top.
Go Cardinals — 11 in ’11.
