    I remember 1964 and the damn Mets beating the Cards until Cards finally clinched on last day I think.Mets battled Cards every game and made it hard for Cards to clinch.

    The ‘64 and ‘67 Cardinals are my favorite all-time teams!

    Meanwhile, we are done people. 2018 is another “not good enough” year.

    I was born in 1964…..March 28th to be exact. We’re getting old gentlemen. Became a Cardinal fan at age 4. Have no recollection whatsoever of the ’68 WS….which is good. Remember those ugly 70’s teams like the back of my hand though.

    Hmm…in 1964 my birth was still 15 years away, though late March is a good time to have a birthday…including myself there’s 5 members of my extended family, well now only three of us but that’s only because my Grandma and her twin brother aren’t with us anymore, he died several years ago and she a few…

    Catching up from a question on a previous page:

    Onyx, Hicks was not ejected. Shildt removed him from the game.

    The incredible thing is that it could happen.

    The point of 64 was that we had some veterans that made it work. With six games to go, we trailed Philly by two games, and we had to play Philly in Philly three times. We won all three to take the lead by a game with three easy games against the Mets who were like 55-104 or thereabouts. They beat us two straight in St.Louis before we clinched on the last day as Cincy finally lost to Philly, allowing them to tie for second, one game back. Cincy had caught us with one game left.

    We beat the leaders in their house. Sadecki won 20, but it was Curt Simmons that kind of saved us. We were heavy into Gibson, Simmons, and Sadecki. Simmons started the clincher with Gibson entering in long relief. After losing 1-0 in the first game of the Met series, Gibson got the win in the clincher in relief. Good teams play well in the clutch. Teams that lose at home in the middle of pennant chases don’t win.
