While the St. Louis cardinals season ended with that dissapointing first-round playoff series loss to Arizona, the off-season has started in fine fashion. A pair of Redbirds were recognized by ‘The Sporting News’ yesterday as major award winners. Albert Pujols was named TSN’s Rookie of the Year while righthander Matt Morris captured their Comeback Player of the Year Award. Pujols hit .329 this season 37 home runs and 130 runs batted in while Morris went 22-8 this season with a fine 3.16 ERA.
