The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers tonight in World Series Game 7 by a score of 6-2. Chris Carpenter pitched a fantastic game and the offense created runs once again.

The Rangers lost in the World Series for the second consecutive year (the first team to do so since the 1991-'92 Atlanta Braves), which will make their off-season extremely interesting. Will C.J. Wilson stay or go? Will they make a lot of changes to shake things up, or keep things as they are, considering it brought them consecutive pennants?

Regardless of the off-season, tonight was spectacular and this series was spectacular. The Rangers were a strike away from winning the World Series twice, but failed to record that final strike both times. If Nelson Cruz fielded the fly-ball to rightfield in Game 6 correctly, the Texas Rangers would be World Series Champions.

David Freese is the series MVP.

Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans. What a series.

If you would like to congratulate the Cardinals fans, do so here. Do not troll the Rangers' site please.

It is now truly the off-season, folks.
