The Cardinals failed in their effort to get to their 12th World Series competition this year. They won the World Series in 2011 and had a theme of “12 in ’12” this year. Sadly, they weren’t able to pull it off.
They made it to the playoffs — to my surprise — and managed to do pretty well until the very end. They lost the last two games. Oh, well, there’s always next year although 12 in ’13 doesn’t have quite the same ring.
