Jayson Stark, a writer for ESPN.com came up with a great look back at the 2007 MLB season. The Cardinals were involved in some of his "wild and wacky" moments of 2007. Here are some excerpts from the article found on ESPN’s website that I’ve linked for you.
You can’t beat Troy Percival’s year, can you? On Opening Day in Anaheim, he threw out the ceremonial first pitch (on the soon-to-be-disproved theory that he’d retired). But six months later, that very same Troy Percival was the Cardinals’ starting pitcher in the last game of the year. And by November, Tampa Bay had signed him to a two-year contract. Anybody see that coming?
Fab Four Dept.: The Cardinals scored in precisely four innings during their entire four-game series with the Padres, Aug. 6-9 — and still managed to win three out of four.
A Tale of Two Pitchers Dept.: While Brandon Webb was ripping off 42 straight innings allowing no runs, Mike Maroth went through a 42-inning stretch in which he gave up 53 runs. ?
Walk This Way Dept.: A free pass, huh? Tell it to the Cubs’ Ronny Cedeno. He got thrown out April 20 trying to advance from first to second on a walk . (Tried to steal. Overslid the bag.) Oops. Note, that this happened against the Cardinals, Yadier Molina gunned Cedeno down.
