Cardinals fans love David Freese. He is a World Series MVP, but not just any MVP, perhaps MVPiest of MVPs. He currently owns the record for the highest win expectancy added by any player in a World Series game. He led the Cardinals to a World Series championship, one the began with an incredible, improbable run to even make the playoffs to begin with. The miracle season was capped off by a championship win.
And did you know he is from St. Louis?
He is basically all of St. Louis's son. And even though your son plays on a division rival, you still cheer your heart out for him every time and then hope his pitcher gets shelled.
