Adam Wainwright was still outwardly upset hours after his rough outing in a 10-6 loss to the New York Mets Thursday night. "It's a tough year for me," he said. "Just another game we lose that I start and the offense scored some runs. It's frustrating. I don't know what more to say."

The Cardinals have finally found their identity. They will try to mash their way to the World Series. Randal Grichuk seems to be the embodiment of the new philosophy, one that is not typically associated with the Cardinals. Since he came back from a minor-league demotion, Grichuk has 13 hits, 12 of them for extra bases. The Cardinals have hit 177 home runs, easily the most in the National League.

Rogers Hornsby excelled on a struggling squad

In 1924, Hornsby hit a MLB-leading .424, the best single-season batting average by an NL player in the modern era (since 1900) and finished second in MVP voting. Meanwhile, the Cardinals finished 65-89, the fifth-worst record in the majors. Great players on bad teams
