#9 on my list is the second (of 3) former #1 teams on my list (theoretical list) after the Pirates at #3, the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1985, I had four favorite players and two of them were Cardinals, John Tudor and Tommy Herr (Eric Davis and Johnny Ray were the others). However, there weren't any Cardinals on that 1985 World Series team that I didn't like from Jack Clark to Vince Coleman to Ozzie Smith. I just loved that team mainly because it was built on speed rather than power. There is one person that caused the Cardinals to drop for me, Tony LaRussa. You will spot that sentence again in a couple of weeks. Only the presence of former Rockies great Matt Holliday has brought the Cardinals back from the depths of apathy. Could the Cardinals ever climb higher on my list? Doubtful, but you never know. For now, let's take a look at the first half of the St. Louis Cardinals along with some trivia.
