Cardinals Beat Tigers -- Oh My!

After the way the Cardinals stumbled into the playoffs, I thought they'd be lucky to get out of the first round. I never thought I'd see them winning the World Series. And confounding all the experts, the World Series did end in the five games many of them had predicted, but with the Cardinals coming out on top instead of the Tigers.

The Tigers had a fine team, so I'm fairly sure we'll be seeing more of them in the future. And the Cardinals are now the team with the fewest regular season wins (in seasons not shortened by a strike) to win the World Series.

More than that, Cards shortstop David Eckstein is now the shortest winner of the World Series MVP award. (And from everything I've read and heard, a heckuva nice guy. Apparently, the Corvette he just won is the first new car he's ever owned.)
