    I still enjoying playing those Cardinal teams of the 1980s in Strat-O-Matic. All that speed and defense. Those 1-17 rated runners (the highest you can get). All of those AAA, AA, and A rated base stealers. McGee’s big 1985. Tudor in 1985. Van Slyke’s defense in RF – he was a 1 e1 (-3). Clark’s big 1987 until he got hurt.

    Quite entertaining!

    Whiteyball is THE reason I became a baseball fan.

    The Cardinals have had some great decades. The 30’s, 40’s, 60’s, 2000’s, and 2010’s were all great but the 1980’s will always be the greatest to me because it was my formative years and they played a brand of baseball that was so unique. There were a few other teams like the Royals, A’s, and Expos that used speed and defense but none did like the Redbirds.

    Of all the great players like Ozzie, Willie, Lonnie Smith, Silent George, Pendleton, Porter, Oberkfell, Forsch, Andujar, Sutter, Van Slyke, Coleman, Tudor, Oquendo…..my two favorites were Tommy Herr and Jack Clark. And of course the White Rat. I did Strat-O-Matic back then as well.

    This documentary is must see TV.

    Well, how was it? I was gone to the ballgame but I recorded it on the DVD so I will watch it later.

    Thoughts anyone?

    It was well done. But any true Cardinals fan could have watched another two hours of it, if it was extended that long.

    It was ok. The huge majority of the show was devoted to the 82 team, not much for 85 and 87. I understand that since 82 won the title but I always thought the 85 team was better. They just got derailed by an automatic tarp and Don Denkinger.

    I watched the show late last night. It wasn’t quite what I thought it was going to be about. I thought they were going to discuss whether the 1980s St. Louis teams would be successful in today’s game of homeruns and strikeouts. Instead it just seemed to be mostly highlights of 1982, 1985, and 1987.

    Great stuff. Love John Smoltz take on the 80’s versus now. Certainly organizations are making shortstop a power position. And fielding, or lack thereof, has been traded for more home runs.
