Some nifty historical facts in this article: http://www.sj-r.com/sections/sports/stories/59761.asp

"Perfectos" is a cool team name, don't you think?

If I were a Reinsdorf hater (which I'm not, even remotely), I might think "Der Poss Bresident" would vit him, I mean "fit him." :wink: Actually, it's more Steinbrenneresque.

good read. I dream of a cards/ Sox series. It would be tough, but I would rather play a great team than a bunch of pushovers like the you-know-who's

I dream of a cakewalk Series against a fluke team that doesn't really belong there where we beat them in 5 or less.

That would be a great series, I`m gonna tune up my car now just in case.

Although it's not an inter state rivalry,this could (if it happens)
come close to the 1985 Cards/Royals series.

Wouldn't it be great if Beuhrle tosses a CG at home
in game 7 for a Series clincher?? :cool: :cool:

It would be better if El Duque did it in game four.

I'll take the sweep

If I where Ozzie, I would make sure Buehrle gets nowhere near the mound. Everyone knows he would do anything to see a Cardinals WS title. He wore their hat on TV!!

Yes it would be an interstate series. The KC/St Louis series was an intrastate series.

The SOX vs the CARDS in the series would be great to see. Could only imagine how a cub fan would react. Then again the SOX vs anyone in the series would be great.

Wow... never heard that they were called The Perfectos. Indeed for one year that was the Cardinal's name:

As well, the St. Louis Perfectos had a pitcher by the name of Cy Young
