Cardinal Madness! Second Round Match-ups 1 and 2


Hey everyone! It’s Monday and that means it’s time for the beginning of round two of Cardinal Madness! Round one featured a lot of exciting finishes. There were three match-ups that weren’t decided until the last hour of voting and there were also two unanimous decisions. I will be posting two match-ups each day until Thursday and then everyone will have the weekend to get their votes in. Let’s see who makes the elite eight of St Louis Cardinals teams!

(1) 1942 vs (16) 1968

No surprises in either of these match-ups, as the juggernaut ’42 squad defeated the 2001 Cardinals with 86% of the vote. The 1968 team had an even easier time with the 1930 team, receiving 88% of the vote. Who will prevail this week?

    Tough one between 64 and 82, I just had to go with 64, just for the HOF players on the team and those few that almost made it. If circumstances where different Flood probably would have been in and Boyer was close.. Not to underscore that 82 team !
     
    1942 and 68 , thats not fair, its almost like punishing someone to even make a decision on the better team. They both where great..
