The Cardinals aren't the Yankees of the NL. They don't outspend everyone, and they haven't won 25% of the total championships in the sport. Nice try, though. No one will ever be as despicable as the Yankees.

wow statement that try's to do everything but be the Yankees themselves. They are just afraid of the Tax man if they had no Tax they would be past the mark they are at. Yankees get CC you get Lackey what ever the Yankees do you try to get them back sometime in the future if it is a contract or something

...says the guy who listed Mike Tyson as the 3rd best Cardinal in history, while omitting Stan Musial and Ozzie Smith. Obviously nothing you say is important.

Mike Tyson was a good boxer I also have Joe Frazier. That would be a wonerful fight


Look I was joking I know Stan Musical and Ozzie Smith were good players. Just doing what BV done with the Yankee he put all bad players up. At least I put some good players up like Joe Torre and Cy Young both good players.

Joe Torre was a mediocre player... and Cy Young barely even played for the Cardinals. Most of his career was with the Red Sox and the now-defunct Cleveland Spiders.

I don't care where you put Tito. He doesn't belong on the list either, and I'm not a huge homer like you, so Tito is just another manager in my eyes.

 Didnt  Joe Frazier manage the Mets after they fired Joe Torre? Mike Tyson played for the Cubs as did Terry Francona and Joe Girardi. Just some interesting links there.......

First off i put players that actually helped the cardinals win world championships towards the top of the list..if you ask me Albert is the best of them all...And secondly yes the yankees are the heart of baseball and obviously an iconic team, but IMO it is more impressive what the cardinals have done  with their franchise being a lower market team...they cant just spend tons of money every year but yet they fielded 10 championship teams...and that to me is more impressive than what the yankees have done being a very high market team and having LOADS of money to spend each and every season...Congratulations to the Giants!! Love to see a team like them win!!

You got that right. The Cardinals showing in the post season is most impressive; even being a mid-market club. They can't spend like all the large market teams. Go Redbirds!
