    Surprising numbers - I'd like to see how injuries for key or top players shape up. A lot of of injuries to big names.

    I was thinking the same thing when I looked at that graph. Losing Waino all 2011, then Carp almost all this year are two major subtractions from a rotation. Not too mention the loss of Berkman almost all year, Furcal down the stretch, Craig to 2 DL stints, and in 2011 when Holliday had his appendectomy and the frequent stints on the DL that Freese had in those first couple years...

    Those are some big producers missing from the field. I still think it is amazing that our team has done as well as it has through all that! Cardinals fans could certainly appreciate Phillies' fans pain having to go without Howard and Utley for as long as they did.
    "They've got a good ballclub; that guy Ruth is always tough, but he isn't going to get many good balls to hit. The only pitchers they have who will bother us are Pennock and Hoyt. But we can take them -- just as we took the best in the National League. And no matter what the score is, we're going to keep fighting and hustling." --- Cardinals MGR Rogers Hornsby before the 1926 World Series.
