Counting down The Cardinal Nation Blog’s top 20 stories of 2012

As year-end approaches, it is once again time for my view of the top 20 stories across the St. Louis Cardinals Nation during this calendar year. As has been the case previously, the countdown begins with story number 20 and will continue until number one.

I will then wrap up the series with my prediction for the top five Cardinals stories of 2013 and audit how well I did in attempting to predict 2012’s biggest news items one year ago.

This placeholder post will carry the links to all 20 stories. A link to it as well as the top stories of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and my start-of-year predictions for 2012 can be found via the Lists > Top Stories of the Year dropdown, located on the red bar near the top center of the page.
