It doesn’t matter who wears the Cardinal colors it seems that once they wear them something magical happens. If you don’t believe me look at Albert Pujois and Carlos Beltran. Nothing could be more stark than those two. Pujois for 10 years was by far the best hitter in the national league and was Mr. Cardinal, thinking he could take his talents elsewhere …to the Angels he hasn’t been the same player since. Beltran (then with the Mets) was the last out in the 2006 NLCS with looking at a called third strike against Cardinal pitcher Adam Wainwright. My how things have change for Beltran. Since wearing the Cardinal colors Beltran has cemented his reputation as being a post season player. Now his play is finally rewarded with a trip to his first World Series. Due to be a free agent after the season if I were Carlos Beltran I wouldn’t be in a rush to leave StLouis.
So congratulations to the St Louis Cardinals the 2013 National League Champions.
