The Giants beat the Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 to end the Redbirds' 2012 season.
There will be no World Series in St. Louis this season. There will be no parade down Market Street, no 12th world championship and no rematch of the 2006 Fall Classic. Monday night in San Francisco the Cardinals hopes of a repeat of 2011 were ended at the hands of the Giants. Just like in 1996, the Cardinals, with a new manager, had a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship series. And, just like in '96, the Cards failed to get win No. 4, losing in Game 7 in a blowout. The Cardinals were done in by a series of miscues and the inability to get a big basehit. But, credit the San Francisco, the Giants had to play perfect to come back and did just that. The loss in California closes the book on an interesting season for the Cardinals…

The third baseman sent the St. Louis Cardinals to Game 7 of the World Series with his clutch performance, but he hasn't secured a spot on the National League's All-Star Game roster yet. Fans can still vote him in.
Why doesn’t the World Series MVP have a spot on the All-Star team yet? David Freese rescued the St. Louis Cardinals when they were one strike away from losing the World Series twice, and started this season with 13 home runs. Aside from baseball, he created his own baseball camp, suffered through an obnoxious interview at Six Flags St. Louis and made this 7-year old’s dream come true. Does that sound like an All-Star to you? Vote here or text N2 to 89269 to cast your ballot for Freese, who is competing against Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals), Michael Bourn (Atlanta Braves) and Aaron Hill (Arizona Diamondbacks). Freese was in the running against favorite Atlanta Braves' Chipper Jones, when Major League Baseball announced Jones would …

We can't all make it to Busch Stadium to cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals in the home stretch. That's where your social networks come into play.
I'll say it right off the bat: I am not a big sports fan. Yes, I feel a sense of satisfaction when the Cardinals win, especially in the World Series. I get slightly more excited (and a bit smug) when my alma mater, Michigan State University, beats the University of Michigan in any sport. I am not among those who worship at the altar of sports. I am, though, an enthusiatic adherent of the religion of Twitter when it comes to engaging in real-time conversation. And, I have been intrigued by the ways in which sports fans use Twitter to interact during major sporting events. Twitter and the big games In July, an ESPN.com article reported the final moments of the face-off between the American and Japanese women soccer teams "saw Twitter …
The Lafayette grad jacked one over the centerfield fence to steal Game 6 from the Texas Rangers. Do the Cardinals have a chance in Game 7?
Minutes after the St. Louis Cardinals clawed back and won Game 6 of the Worlds Series just before midnight, fans on Twitter were raving about the game and the performance of hometown hero David Freese, the Lafayette High grad whose walkoff homer won the game. The Cards won 10-9, knotting the series 3-3 for a deciding Game 7 tonight. "Why is David Freese not trending?!" tweeted "ndrewAllen." "If the #Cardinals win the World Series, they have to build a statue of #DavidFreese," posted JYOUNGNEXTLEVEL, hailing the alum of the Wildwood high school. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, on the homepage of its STLtoday.com website, headlined its story "Freese it! Hometown hero sends series to Game 7." Nobody could resist the play on words. MLB.com …

The St. Louis BBB is warning fans who are traveling to Texas for the World Series about suspicious hotel offers.
On Monday, the St. Louis Better Business Bureau warned Cardinal nation about World Series ticket scams. Tuesday came an alert about hotel ads targetting fans who may be scrambling to find accommodations in the Dallas area. The BBB said the ads are cropping up on Craigslist. The alert A release from the BBB reads in part: Several ads for World Series hotel packages on a classified ad site claimed to offer tickets for a Rams-Cowboys game along with the hotel, a tip-off that the person who placed the ad may not be familiar with the teams in the World Series, the Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. Some ads are full of misspellings, which also can be a characteristic of fraudulent ads. “Sports fans may be anxious to get a hotel room near the …
