It's one thing to be a great baseball player, but it's quite another to be an even better person. That's a pretty good description of St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt who just helped a St. Louis family finally have a home of their own.
I wanted to take a few days before writing this to talk to friends and make sure I'm not writing out of pure emotion and/or frustration. Now, I think it's time to try and make sense of the awkward end of the St. Louis Cardinals season.
Every day that goes by and every game that is played seems to see Albert Pujols hit home runs and break records. That was the case again Monday night as he destroyed career home run 703 and passed Babe Ruth for 2nd in Major League history for career runs batted in.
I think many of us diehard St. Louis Cardinals fans would love to say thank you to Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina for all of the great memories they've provided over the years. While we may not be able to do that in person, it is possible to sign huge thank you cards this weekend inside Busch Stadium.
