The Cardinals had many to thank in 2011.

The St. Louis Cardinals completed one of the most improbable seasons in MLB history in 2011 and whether you loved or hated the team, you had to appreciate the pure joy the players and coaches displayed as they staved off elimination night after night from the beginning of September through the end of World Series Game 7.

Like a run of falling dominoes, every piece had to land just right for the miracle ride to continue.  In many cases, individual Cardinals rose to the occasion to knock the next piece down as Chris Carpenter did against Philadelphia in Game 5 of the League Divisional Series against his friend Roy Halladay or hometown hero David Freese did in Game 6 of the World Series.  

But they also got a lot of help along the way and to that, we'll do the Cardinals' front office a favor and send out some holiday thank you cards on their behalf to those teams and individuals that made the franchise's 11th title a reality.
