When Cardinals rookie Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless eighth inning in today's game at Milwaukee, he became the 2,000th player to play for the Cardinals in the club’s extended history.
It only seems like they’ve tried half that many relievers this season.

...

There have been 2,000 players who have played under the franchise’s banner from May 2, 1882, to this afternoon. The Chicago Cubs, whose history traces back to 1876, are the next closest with 1,911 players.

...

There is, however, a catch with this history.
The Cardinals have noted Rosenthal’s pending place in history in the game notes, and yet this current franchise does not recognize anything before 1892 as “official” history. In 1892, the Cardinals joined the National League as the St. Louis Browns. They had existed for the previous 10 in one form or another as part of the American Association. When this current franchise talks about its anniversaries and its overall records, it always starts at 1892 and moves forward.


Interesting story. I love records like this, and the 10,000 wins from a couple years ago, and (if I had been around) I would have loved the millionth run from the 1970s.

Speaking of the one millionth run (Bob Watson in 1975)...

It's incredible that it took baseball approximately 100 years to get to a million runs, and yet, the current projections have the 2 millionth run scoring in about 2019 or 2020. So it'll only take another 45 years or so for the second million to score.

Obviously, a lot of that has to do with expansion. There's also a longer schedule than was played for most of the first 100 years. The DH has contributed too. But I think the biggest change is probably the explosion in scoring in general.

This is an incredible organization.

Since 2002, St Louis has only finished under 500 once. The next fewest amount of wins was 83, which is a year they won the World Series. Other than that, they are usually in the 85-100 win area.

In that time frame, they have been to the playoffs seven times and won 2 WS titles.

In that same time frame, they are +930 in terms of run differential. They finished negative in one season. The lowest plus side they had was 19..then 54...rest of the time it has been in 70-195 range.

This year, they lost the best player of this generation and one of the best managers ever(at least in terms of winning games) and they only lost 2 more games than last year despite a run differential of almost 50 MORE runs and now they are in the NLDS, which Pujols sits home. Truly amazing.

MLB.com Cardinals sign versatile Wigginton to deal

http://baltimore.ori...ws_mlb&c_id=mlb

When I saw he got a two-year deal, I thought it was a bit much but for $5 million total, I think it's decent.
