2011 World Series: St. Louis Cardinals and Top 5 Worst World Series Winners

The St. Louis Cardinals won their 11th World Series title on Friday night in yet another Game 7 for a franchise with a long history of Game 7's (1987, 1985, 1982, 1968, 1967, 1964, 1946, 1934, 1931 and 1926).

This one may have been the most improbable.

The Cardinals weren't even expected to be in the playoffs as late as the last day of the regular season.

They made the playoffs, beat the heavily favored Phillies in five games, division rival Brewers in six games and now the heavy-hitting Texas Rangers in seven.

An amazing feat for a team that I consider the third-best in their division.

This was a great run for a Cardinals team, that quite frankly just isn't that good.

They will forever be talked about as one of the worst World Series champions of all-time, but let's take a look and see how they actually stack up against past champions.
