Cardinals are 2011 WS Champions

I guess this is a bit late, but better late than never right?

Anyway, the Cardinals won Game 7 last night to earn their 11th WS Title and their first since ’06. To be honest, I had no favorite in this series. I was watching as a baseball fan, not as a Cards/Rangers fan. In my opinion, that’s the best way to watch playoffs(unless your team happens to be in the playoffs). Albert Pujols, Chris Carpenter, and Allen Craig led their team to victory in this postseason. But the real leader of this team was David Freese. Freese became only the 6th player to be the NLCS MVP and the WS MVP in the same year. He “Put the team on his back“, as demetryjames86 said on Youtube.

The Rangers just weren’t able to get it done this year. Now that I’m remembering, they were in the WS last year too! And they lost! I’m a bit disappointing they came up short both years, and to be honest I thought they should’ve beat SF last year. I felt that they were the better team, but in sports the better team does not always win. Maybe next year (for the 3rd year in a row).

Till tomorrow (NFL Picks!),

  1. Nice post! The Cards run to the WS from down 8.5 in the wild card is truly remarkable. David Freese winning MVP I agree with he was so clutch in the NLCS and the WS. great job man!

  2. What an amazing series, and the Cards are rightful champions. I saw a sign on TV that a fan had that said:

    “Don’t stop Relievin’
    The Dream continues”

    That sign was right on.

  3. Im happy for Tony and the Cards not doubt had to work for this Championship!
