The Cardinals Took Care Not To Celebrate In The Diamondbacks' Pool

The Cardinals found themselves in much the same position as the Dodgers did a year ago: at Chase Field, about to clinch the division.

The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that… » 4/18/14 1:55pm 4/18/14 1:55pm
