JUST IN TIME
July 16, 1985
It's midseason in baseball and time to pause. The high-flying St. Louis Cardinals have the best record in baseball and generate the same excitement the Gas House Gang did in the early '30s, yet not a word about the Cards from SI. Is this an example of East Coast selective journalism?

My apologies to you! Three days after I wrote a letter criticizing SI for ignoring the most exciting team in baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals, you gave the Cardinals the attention they deserve in an excellent piece by Craig Neff (The Cards Are Coming Up Aces, July 22). Thank you for an ace of an article!
