Yeah… Well… I Ain’t Ready To Call It “A Season”… yet.

Pujols decision can wait for Cardinals

(Pieces Of The Article) By R.B. FALLSTROM, AP Sports Writer —

Albert Pujols tried to give away nothing during the celebration, tried to stay in the moment. But what a moment it was.

Getting another taste of that championship feeling surely will tip the scales in favor of the St. Louis Cardinals at least a little bit when it comes time to talk contract.

“Obviously, right now a lot of things go through my head and thinking about the whole season,” Pujols said at the podium after the Cardinals won their 11th World Series.

“Probably like two or three weeks from now, that’s when I’m really going to be sitting down and saying, ‘Wow, where we were, and now we’re the 2011 World Champions.’ It’s unbelievable.”

What remained of Friday after the Cardinals finished off the Texas Rangers in Game 7 was for savoring one of the most unlikely comebacks in major league history. Hundreds of fans peacefully roamed the downtown streets well into the night.

“Truly a dream come true,” manager Tony La Russa said. “It’s hard to really imagine it actually happened.”

On Sunday, the team will bask in adulation once again with a victory parade scheduled for late afternoon. In 2006, the team estimated between 300,000 and a half-milllion people lined the streets.

Five players remain from 2006, when the Cardinals backed into the postseason as an 83-win team and then got hot when key players got healthy. Pujols, Yadier MolinaSkip Schumaker, and Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright remain from that team, which also was lightly regarded.

Can’t top 2011.

“This team is unbelievable,” Carpenter said after beating the Rangers for the second time. “Most amazing team I’ve ever been a part of.”—



Yeah. I Think We’ll Take That.

Nice Way To Make It All Official.

Following Sunday’s Parade, I Suppose We’ll Have To Call It “A Season”.

It’s Going To Be A Damn Loooooooooooong, Coooooooooooooooooold, Winter.

However, I Do SOOOOOOOOO Love Spring-Time In The Midwest.

I’m Already Looking Forward To MANY MANY MANY Rounds of Mock-Drafting In Preparation For The Ole 2012 Campaign.

I Do Promise To Not Stay Away Tooooo Long, Tho.
