Yes!!!

Of course, growing up a Cards fan, now living outside Boston, I'll be happy no matter what happens - and happy for either team that wins.

should be good. I liked the astros better, but I am still kind of glad because I think the Cardinals have a lot more weaknesses than the Astros. I can easily see either team winning this series.

I agree - and I hope this one goes seven games as well. A 4 or 5 game blow-out won't be fun for anyone to watch.

Duff-Man says...well, it's a Red Sox vs. Cardinals series coming up. I am not really too much of a baseball fan but I think I will have to root for the Sox this time - time to put an end to that ol' jinx.....oh yeah!

Yeah, I think the Sox will be the consensus favorites of everyone not a Cardinals or Yankees fan. Heck, I wouldn't be all that disappointed if Boston wins, but I'm still rooting for the redbirds.

I want to see the celebration in Boston once the Red Sox win it all.

The Babe is dead!
A female student died during the celebration last night. I'm a bit hesitant to see what will happen if the Sox win the series....

And yes it wasn't intentional. But still, seems like a stupid thing to have someone die because of a team winning.

yes, that was very sad. The police admitted they did it, albeit unintentionally. I don't have anything against the cardinals, but I want the Sox to just pummel them for 4 games straight. No, it's not good baseball, but my heart can't take any more stress. :)

I'm still giddy about Wednesday night. That was epic. I think the Sox have the will and the momentum to win, and I wish them all the best.

Sox in seven.

Cards all the way!

Im from St. Louis, but however, I wouldn't be too upset if the Sox won, after all, they are the team that completley owned the damn Yankees :D

Well they did let the Yankees hit and run all they wanted for three days in a row, which plain wore out NY's bats. :p

Then they kept them up for 3 days in a row with all those increasing long games. :D

Could be. They could also be emotionally sapped, which I hope is the case ;)

Either way, looking forward to a great rematch (the Cards are 2-0 in World Series against the Red Sox).

The death of Victoria is just sad beyond belief. It brings shame of the Red Sox win. Doesn't put Boston in a very good light that such a thing could happen. It was a terrble accidetn. The Police was protecting Boston residents. What has happened to our culture that we don't listne to the lawful order of the police. :( :eek: :eek: :(

Sad, isn't it? The Cards haven't been it in since '87, and haven't won since '82. Sure, it's nothing compared to the poor Sox, but still awhile.

I really wasn't old enough to pay too much attention to baseball before about '78/'79, so for me, I was happy to see the Cards in the series three times in a decade, which I though was pretty good. Little did I know I wouldn't see them there again until my daughter was almost old enough to start rooting for them! :(

If things stay true to the LCS, we could be watching game 7 on Halloween...

I am not a huge baseball fan, but after the drama of the Red Sox win over the Yankees, I am really looking forward to the World Series this year. I predict taht the Red Sox take it in no more than 6 games just because they have so much emotional momentum going into this and they got consistently stronger as they started beating the Yankees.

The same thing will happen this year as what happened in the last World Series, The Red Sox are emotional drained after fighting in a 7 game bloodbath with the arch rival Yankees that in their minds they already won the World Series in beating the Yankees they have nothing left for the real thing.
