10 Players you Forgot Were Cardinals

Post by CardsofSTL »

Forgotten Cardinals

Interesting read...though I didn't forget any of these.

Here is the list; click on the link for the full article and information about each player.
Cy Young, 1899-1900
Bob Uecker, 1964-65
Bobby Bonds, 1980
Jim Kaat, 1980-83
Jamie Moyer, 1991
Andres Galaragga, 1992
Dennis Eckersley, 1996-97
Bobby Bonilla, 2001
Joe Girardi, 2003
John Smoltz, 2009
I remember being very disappointed that we didn't get Smoltz for a full season in 2010; kind of like when Will Clark retired after coming over late in the 2000 season.

Can't forget Bonilla. It was because of him and his injury that we got an extra year of Albert Pujols.

I was rather young when Cy Young was a Cardinal.

I remember Gallaraga won a batting title for the Rockies after he left the Cards.

I forgot Jason Heyward played for the Cardinals, but that was more on purpose than an oversight.

Clay Carroll was a Cardinal. I'm surprised The Hawk wasn't mentioned in the nickname thread.
