I recently came across a link to a 2011 game 159 overflow thread here on VEB, and in that thread was a link to video of Rafael Furcal's HR to eventually win that game. That started me down a trail to various other links to video of Cardinals' September/October highlights, and I figured it would be good to share that document of the wildly implausible fantastitude of last fall with VEB. I'm sure I've missed some good postseason highlights, so please feel free to include them in the comments!
Crazy ninth inning culminating in wild pitch win against the Cubs in game 158
Furcal 8th inning HR to win the next day (complete with Happy Flight chant!)
Carp wins game 162 then Cards celebrate Braves loss that gives them the wild card
Freese has 4 RBIs in NLDS game 4
Carp beats Halladay to win the NLDS
Pujols has 5 RBIs in NLCS game 2
Cards win the NL pennant
Cruz misses Craig's line drive, allowing eventual WS game 1 winning run to score
Pujols sets or ties multiple WS records in game 3
Yadi also chips in 4 RBIs with a couple of doubles and a sac fly
Holliday with an awesome outfield assist in that same game (I don't know why we don't hear more about how great that throw was)
Craig get the Cards within two with an 8th inning HR in WS game 6 (courtesy of I-Musial-ly-Am)
Freese ties WS game 6 in the ninth inning
Berk ties WS game 6 in the tenth inning
Freese walkoff HR ends the best WS game in the history of the universe
Presumably the last Yadi-to-Albert pick-off play we'll see
Freese picks up where he left off in the first inning of WS game 7, setting a new postseason RBI record
Craig scores the eventual WS-winning run on a HR...
...then robs Cruz of a HR a few innings later
I think you know what this one is - come get some, baby!!
