’14 FLC Tournament: The Finals

It’s all come down to this.  64 Cardinals walked into this bracket, only two remain.  One pitcher, one hitter.  Both Hall of Famers.  Both legends.  Both worthy of the crown that only one will claim.  Ring the bell and let’s start this battle!

1) Bob Gibson vs. 2) Red Schoendienst

Gibson beat:
Al Hrabosky 24-2
Joaquin Andujar 23-0
Yadier Molina 30-3
Ted Simmons 38-0
Ozzie Smith 25-22

Total record: 140-27

Schoendienst beat:
Todd Worrell 41-1
Jason Isringhausen 26-1
Matt Morris 21-0
Adam Wainwright 25-14
Lou Brock 24-23

Total record: 137-39

Both barely took out their Final Four opponents, using a late surge to clinch the victory.  Red’s played a few closer contests, but that’s just gotten him toughened up for the main event.  So who is going to be, Gibby or the Redhead?

Polls close at noon tomorrow, so if you don’t vote before then, it’ll give you something to do on the off day.

As for the bracket challenge, it’s all wrapped up:

Jacqueline Conrad 102
Matt Rath #1 87
Eugene Tierney 86
Ross Williman 85
Joe Schwarz 82
Mary Rath 65
Matt Rath #2 60

Only Jacqueline, Matt #1 and Joe still have a shot at getting the champion right (the men took Red, the lady Gibby) but it’ll matter not as the gap is too large.  So congrats to Jacqueline on her triumph!
