The Cardinals are my favorite baseball team, and I’m glad they are going to the World Series….This will be the first time since 1968 that they have played the Red Sox for the Series….They both are a strong team, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top…..If you’re a fan of either, post your thoughts on the Series…..

Nostalgia:

I loved………and now miss………. teams like the Lakers with Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, etc…….. and the Celtics with Kevin McHale, Dennis Johnson, Robert Parish, Danny Ainge, etc.

And, I miss the old Boston Red Sox – “The Big Red Machine” of the mid-70’s

What a greet team. Coached by Sparky Anderson with a great starting line-up of Pete (Mr. Charlie Hustle), Rose, Morgan, Pérez, Concepción, Foster, Griffey, and Gerónimo.

Should be a good Series. I hope it is.

Best. Bruce.

right on, Mr C+!!!!
Man, that grand slam in the 6th inning put them right on top in the 6th game of the series. Shane Victorino… who is this guy?? WTG Sox!!!
I am pained, though to watch the game and not see my favorite players from recent years, now most notably Kevin Youkilis, Johnny Damon, and Josh Beckett. But, no doubt this team makes it happen!

This is the first time since 1999 that the world series is between the two teams with the best regular-season record in their league. Coincidentally, they have the same record: 97 wins and 65 losses.

It should be a great series.

Yeah. I’m from the St. Louis area and I sure remember losing to the Red Sox in 2004, but I also remember winning the series in ‘82, ‘06, and ‘11 and intend to have to remember winning in 2013. I always resent the little attention that is given the Cardinals every year. We’re a small market, we never get attention from the media, we never get the good time slots for games, we have a relatively small payroll, we have an inordinate number of our players who were drafted by the cardinals, yet we rival other teams for numbers of pennants and championships won. Go Cards. Who needs Pujols.

Thanks for the comments, guys…..

I have to admit that I did not see the game in ‘99, or even the one in ‘04….I didn’t start watching the Cardinals, and whoever they played till ‘05…..I’m not familiar with the AL league much at all…..Only the teams that the Cards have played since they started playing the “inner-league “teams a few years ago…...But since then, I hardly miss a game…..I prolly watch 120-140 games a year…...One thing I’ve noticed over the years…..the Cards don’t go out too much for drafting players beyond their own farm teams, especially from the Memphis Redbirds….But when they get players like Carlos Beltran, it’s well worth it to do so…...That’s right…..Who needs Pujols..?..They gave him $265 million for a 10 year contract…..He’s 32 now, and he ain’t producing for the Angels…..They can keep him…..We got some big bats on the team…..!!!!

Actually…...I got into watching baseball quite by accident…..I was looking for something to watch one night, and nothing but junk was on, except a baseball game….It was the Cardinals, and whoever thye were playing(?).I’ve been watching them ever since….So about 8 years is all….But I try to never miss a game when they play…....It’s funny how players come and go, but the game never changes…..!!!!!!!!

Go Cards!

I watched Gibson play, was in the stands when Lou stole #105, saw a Forsch no-hitter and loved Whiteyball in the ‘80s. Hated the ‘04 sweep by the Sox, want no repeat. Here we go, Cards and October baseball go together!!

I think you’ll find the cards played the tigers in 68 wish it was a rematch of those teams, Tigers won. The cards won in 46 + 67 the sox won in 2004.
