It's a little strange to lose a body part. But that's what happened to St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter when surgeons removed one of his ribs in an attempt to alleviate pressure that was running up his pitching arm.

Left-hander Johan Santana became the first pitcher in the history of the New York Mets to throw a no-hitter on Friday night, as the Mets defeated the Mets defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 8-0, at Citi Field, in New York, New York.
There was much consternation in St. Louis last week after Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols made his way toward a glittering paycheck with the Los Angeles Angels that will pay him more than $250 million over the course of 10 years.

St. Louis Cardinals skipper Tony La Russa announced his retirement from baseball today after a 33 year managerial career.

The 2011 MLB World Series has had plenty of theatrics. Game 6 in St. Louis will go down in the history books. The Cardinals were down to their last strike twice Thursday night, only to win in 11 innings. David Freese hit the game-winning walk-off homerun to propel the Cardinals to a 10-9 victory over the Texas Rangers, forcing a decisive Game 7.
