Not sure how we whiffed on this one, but buried deep on the YouTubes was the following video featuring Jon Jay and David Freese on College Humor.
Looks like this was uploaded way before the Cardinals ended up winning the 2011 World Series and David Freese became DAVID FREESE, so really, this is the last vestige of non-famous Freese and Jay... at least in St. Louis.

On November 13, 2011, Mike Matheny was named as the new manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, replacing retired Tony La Russa. While his club was unable to repeat as World Champions, the 42-year-old had a solid first season in the job.
Prior to his hire, Matheny had been a special assistant to general manager John Mozeliak and an organizational catching instructor. A 13-year major...

In Brian Walton’s ideal scenario, first baseman Matt Adams makes the 2013 St. Louis Cardinals roster. How would all the pieces fit?
Free agent Lance Berkman still has not decided that he will play in 2013. But he is talking about a possible return with multiple clubs, including the Texas Rangers, major-league sources say.
Berkman's hometown team, the Houston Astros, remains open to bringing him back, even after signing free-agent first baseman Carlos Pena. But the Rangers stand a much better chance than...
