As you say, Cub fans say "wait until next year" because they literally know nothing else to say. It's an empty phrase for them, at least 95% of the time.
Not so with Pittsburgh. It would seem St. Louis and Pittsburgh will be dueling each other for years to come, with both having good young cores. I'd like to see St. Louis get the better each time, but I know that's not likely to be the case.
This was a series of two great and classy teams. Cardinal Nation tips its cap to you and looks forward to more battles in the future.

Minor point, Pujols has been on the DL twice before this season. Other than that, exactly right. As a fan, you wish this had been done a long time ago. As a business, though, this was the only way it could end.

I agree, that's not at all what you want to see. I feel like there should be something more behind this, but perhaps it is the first (well, not the first) crack in his public facade.

Agreed. When combined with the internet and the explosion of how you can follow this team, Pujols has put his indelible mark on my fandom. Whenever he leaves St. Louis--whether after this season or 10 years from now--it will never be quite the same.
Big home runs are always good!
