Cardinals take the World Series four games to one. Some general notes: It’s their first World Series Championship since 1982, the year that Jim Edmonds was 12; when Chris Carpenter was 7; five years after the Cardinals released Tony LaRussa as a player, ending his major league career after never playing a game for ST. Louis. The Cardinals have set a record for the World Series winner with the fewest wins in the regular season (83). The Cardinals are the second team in Major League history to win a World Series in the first year they occupy a new ballpark (Yankees won in 1923, the first year of Yankee Stadium) The Cardinals ended a 12-game winning streak against National League teams by American League teams in the World series when they won game 2 of this series. St. Louis finished the regular season winning only 6 of their last 16 games, then roared through the playoffs and the series by winning 11 of 17. We have for you a medley of post-game comments by: David Eckstein, Jeff Weaver, LaRussa, Albert Pujols, Carpenter, Jim Edmonds, Adam Wainwright, and finally, LaRussa again.
