The eight greatest Cardinals ever as determined by the All-Time Cardinals Bracket has been decided. And now, the matchups get really juicy. Two of these are matchups I predict will come down to the wire, and the two where I think I know who is going to win have really good opponents. But first, here’s how the Lankford 16 round went before we advanced to the Punto 8.
Sportsman’s Park Region:
#1 Stan Musial over #4 Jim Edmonds, 98.1%
#2 Ted Simmons over #3 Curt Flood, 66.4%
Busch Stadium Region:
#1 Albert Pujols over #5 Jim Bottomley, 97.4%
#2 Ozzie Smith over #6 Yadier Molina, 66%
Robison Field Region:
#1 Rogers Hornsby over #4 Adam Wainwright, 82.9%
#3 Lou Brock over #2 Enos Slaughter, 77.9%
Busch Memorial Stadium Region:
#1 Bob Gibson over #4 Johnny Mize, 99.2%
#3 Dizzy Dean over #2 Ken Boyer, 75.1%
And here is the ballot for the next round. Vote by, let’s say, 6 p.m. Central on Sunday. Should be a fun round.
