    The list of legendary players from this illustrious team is staggering in it's collective greatness. From Dizzy Dean to Stan "The Man" Musial to Bob Gibson to Lou Brock to Ozzie Smith and now Albert Pujols, the Cardinals have had a consistent history of greatness. This is the thread for all those who love us (and maybe those who hate us, I see you there Amos!) to share stories, news and thoughts on our beloved Cardinals. LETS GO REDBIRDS! [face_dancing]

    EDIT: Apparently I can't speeeeel (although I made that mistake countless times before with the word "appericiation" that I never noticed).

    anyway, good job by the cards this year. I'm so glad the AL didn't win it!

    *pat pat* you'd be better if this site came with spell-check :p

    either way, it was just a matter of time till you discovered this place.

    Actually, you also have an extra letter as well, thats still in it ;)

    But anyways, I'm not a huge Cards fan, although my Dad grew up as a Cardinals fan (and still is, when he follows baseball), and I like the team better than most. And I was definitely happy to see the NL win the WS this year, about time.

    Gotta say the Cardinals suprised me this year, after that horrendous end to the regular season the WS seemed out of reach but they pulled it off.

    Cardinals Resign Mark Mulder to 2 Year Deal

    I approve very much so. I'm a big believer in Mulder's ability and his potential to recapture his Oakland form. And if he's anywhere near that level, the price is a steal in today's market.

    Wondered how long that would take. I suspected he would return, but it certainly took a while, didn't it?

    To rub it in all of your faces: remember the 2002 NL Championship Series? [face_laugh]

    Oh, and I bet if Mulder doesn't suck, he'll be such a better acquisition (yeah, I know, it's a re-signing) than the Giants and Barry Zito.

    Espicially at the price. If he's anywhere near Oakland level then he's an absolute steal, and we have an option for that third year too. :cool:

    You're talking as if he was just signed from Oakland: he's had two up and down years in the NL: he's gonna have to work to find some semblance of consistency (just like Hudson, actually - maybe there is something to be said about their relationship with Rick Pederson...).

    I'm going on the assumption that the last two years were hampered by his shoulder problem. If he continues to struggle this season then it is a bust, but with the market as insane as it is now, this is a chance that I believe is very well worth it.
