Congrats, St. Louis!


I never got a chance to congratulate the St. Louis Cardinals yet on this blog for winning the World Series, so I wanted to take a moment to do that now.  You knocked off the “juggernaut” (Philly), the “chic pick” (Milwaukee), and arguably the most steady team in the American League (Texas).  Much like in 2006, you surprised us all!!

Especially, though, I was happy for former Twin Nick Punto…

He finally has that World Series ring for all his hustle!

On a related note, I was surprised to hear about the retiring of Tony LaRussa.  Personally, I will always remember Tony for this…

I logged more hours on this baseball sim than perhaps any other video game I have ever played!

LaRussa was a great manager who will always be remember for his strategy, and perhaps his involvement in the Steroid Era.  I think I’ll always say that Bobby Cox was the greatest manager of my generation, but LaRussa isn’t too far behind (just look at those win totals).
