The Cardinals are in the World Series!!!
 
My beloved Redskins may not be Super Bowl bound this year (though I've not completely given up on it yet), but I am absolutely ecstatic that my St. Louis Cardinals are in the World Series!!! It's going to be a tough road to beat Detroit, but I hope they can at least make a series out of it like they did vs. the Mets.

What an incredible game 7! As a fan of either team, it was full of a lot of tense moments... but as a fan of baseball... WOW! A [B][U][I]GREAT[/I][/U][/B] game!

World Series prediction: Cards in 7 (please???)

I'm bummed, the Mets had the perfect situation set up at the end. Bases loaded with Beltran at the plate. Can't believe he went down looking.

You've got to protect the plate. That pitch was close enough that you have to take a swing at it.

All I'm saying is the Cardinals went to the WS in '82 and '87...a few months later the Redskins won the Super Bowl

That was a beautiful 12-6 curveball!!!! You can tell it totally fooled him. That pitch is quite a knee buckler!

I am going for Detroit...I love teams that come from years of sucking to win. Hey, I was born and raised in Boston...I know how it feels!

It's funny. Everyone talks about how there is no parity in baseball. Yet in the past 7 years (including this year) 7 different teams have won the World Series.

There is no parity in baseball...the same teams win every year...it just happened that the few that are never there are taking it the extra step and winning it all. How many times have we seen Oakland, The Yankees, St. Louis, (minus this year) the Braves in the playoffs? TOO MANY!
It just goes to show you, the ones that make it all the time get used to it, the ones that don't, don't take it for granted and make the best of their situation.

If there was parity, KC would win! hahaha

I'm a Cardinals fan; and I was flipping out during the game. My stomach was in knots during the end of that thing, I had the worst feeling that we were gonna lose on a walk-off hr. My cardinals "fan-ness" doesnt come within 80% of my Skins, but its nice to see one of my temas doing well.

Go Cards!

anyone who beats the arrogant mets is OK with me. I'm a Jim Leland fan so I'm cheering for the tigers

I never thought of the Mets as being arrogant. How are they arrogant?

Im definiely not a die hard follower of baseball but it sure doesn't seem that anyone is picking the Cards to even have a chance. Your boy Peter King said today on the Dan Patrick show that the Tigers take it in 5. My only connection to the series is that the 3rd baseman from Detroit Inge went to VCU and hung out and partied with some of my wifes best friends. Other than that I'll watch and pretty much not care.

I think by including Oakland in your list you are undercutting your own argument. Oakland is a small market team that has been able to win consistently by drafting smart, keeping their farm leagues stocked, and letting players go when they are no longer available for cheap. How many big name free agents has Oakland signed during the last several years? How many former A's players have signed huge deals with other teams? There is no question that the odds in baseball are stacked against teams like Kansas City, but teams like Oakland prove that its possible to overcome these inequalities by being a little bit smarter.

If there was parity KC still wouldn't win, because they are one of the worst run franchises in all sports.

Tigers in 5. A sweep would not surprise me.
