We brought you the ridiculous Boston rally song by “What Does The Sox Say,” but it appears the St. Louis Cardinals also love themselves some Ylvis. Cards fan Todd Thomas put together this parody of “What Does The Fox Say,” but pays homage to the Cardinals such as Yadier Molina and Michael Wacha. Can we please stop now?

Rookie Michael Wacha kept pitching like a postseason ace and John Lackey matched him, leaving the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox scoreless through three innings Thursday night in Game 2 of the World Series.
A day after the Red Sox romped past the sloppy Cardinals 8-1, this one was tight at the start as Boston tried for its 10th straight Series win and a commanding lead....
Michael Wacha and John Lackey have taken much different paths to the Fenway Park mound for Thursday night's Game 2 of the World Series, but the magnitude of the moment isn't lost on either of them.
Wacha, the 22-year-old St. Louis Cardinals' rookie, may not be in this position had it not been for beloved superstar Albert Pujols bolting for the Los Angeles Angels following...
Michael Wacha who could start Game 2 of the World Series at Fenway Park on Thursday has plenty of experience against baseball teams from New England.
Wacha pitched an excellent game for Texas A&M against Holy Cross throwing seven shutout innings on Feb. 24 2012.
That's right Wacha is 20 months removed from facing Holy Cross. Maybe the Sox can ask Crusaders coach Greg DiCenzo...
Michael Wacha's masterful pitching run is over. So is the St. Louis Cardinals' season.
The 22-year-old rookie who burst on the major league scene with the poise of a veteran failed on baseball's biggest stage.
Wacha allowed six runs in 3-2/3 innings Wednesday night and the Boston Red Sox went on to a 6-1 win in Game 6 for their third World Series title in 10 years....
Stopping the Boston momentum was the most important job the Cardinals had to do entering game two. And all things considered, there was no better man available to do the job than Michael Wacha. The rookie continued his sensational October run, but this time all the breaks did not fall to him, and finally the odds caught up.
For the Cardinals, the early series stakes couldn’t be...
As if allowing three runs in the bottom of the first in Game 1 of the World Series wasn’t already a bad enough sign for the St. Louis Cardinals, they committed a mistake in the second that seemed to confirm it really wasn’t their game. Boston Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew led off the second […]
After game one of the World Series, in which the Cardinals seemed to sleep walk through the game, making several mental (and physical) errors, the Cards need a wake-up call.
Things came unraveled in the bottom of the first when Pete Kozma dropped a flip from second baseman Matt Carpenter in what could have been a double play. The umpire, Dana DeMuth originally called the runner...
Like an impressionist painting, the Cooperstown credentials of Yadier Molina become clearer when you take a step back and look at the entire picture.
Originally known as the little brother of Bengie and Jose Molina, he has turned their identities to “Yadier’s big brothers.”
A big leaguer since he was 21, Molina has quietly evolved into a superstar. Defensively, he...
Game 2 of the 2013 World Series will feature the wily veteran versus the red-hot rookie. 11-year MLB starting pitcher John Lackey will look to put the Red Sox up 2-0 in the Series. Rookie sensation Michael Wacha, the NLCS MVP, will try to even things up for the St. Louis Cardinals.

If what Jon Lester did was a precursor to what kind of series the Red Sox pitching staff is going to have, then this series may resemble 2004 more than we initially thought.
But we don’t get caught up in the emotion of one game and neither should Red Sox Nation. It was one win. Two of the next three games are guaranteed to be in St. Louis and...
ST. LOUIS -- Seven-plus months since Opening Day, baseball is down to two teams. For once, it's not only the two hottest teams that will meet in the World Series, but the two best.
The Cardinals and the Red Sox both won 97 games and finished with the best record in their respective leagues.
The Red Sox led the AL in scoring; the Cardinals led the NL. (Neither offense...
Let the rest of the baseball world be surprised to see rookie pitchers dominating for the Cardinals. Around St. Louis, we've been watching it since April.
Heck, Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez and Trevor Rosenthal combined to shut out the Dodgers in the clincher of the NL Championship Series just last Friday.
Now what was surprising about the Cardinals' 4-2 victory in...
The 109th edition of the World Series should be a doozy.
The Red Sox and Cardinals enter the Fall Classic equal in the wins column, as both Boston and St. Louis racked up 97 victories during the regular season. The two squads are also very similar in nature, which only adds to the difficulty of predicting the series.
One thing that’s obvious, however, is that this will be the Red...
(Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)Sloppy defense and uncharacteristically poor bullpen relief combined to rob Red Sox fans of what would have been another stirring David Ortiz-inspired comeback win (a two-run opposite field blast off Michael Wacha to give Boston a 2-1, 7th inning lead). But two stupid errors on one play—preceded by an unchallenged double steal and walk—pushed St...
