You'd think that after the 2004 ALCS that NY media couldn't go to that well anymore.
As for perfect games, the Cardinals have never been involved in one. That amazes me.
Well, for awhile, we had - David Palmer's rain-shortened five-inning perfect game for Montreal against the Cards way back when (I want to say 1983, but I'm not sure).
However, after the re-definition a few years ago, the Palmer game is no longer considered an official no-hitter or perfect game, since he didn't go nine. Neither are the various eight-inning no-hitters considered "official" any more (those were the games where a pitcher gave up no hits but did allow a run or two (walks and errors, etc) and didn't even get to pitch the ninth because his team was behind after 8 1/2 innings.
Then you have the Haddix game in 1959; 12 perfect innings before he gave up the hit in the 13th that lost the game - that's no longer official because of that 13th inning.
