Well it's about time this matchup was set after all the rainouts and the NLCS going the distance.
I want the Cards to win but the Tigers are the obvious better team and "should" have an easy time winning it. This huge break was a big advantage to the Tigers who got to rest their already superior pitching staff (especially Joel Zumaya's wonky wrist).
They have Carpenter who is a legit ace and then not much afterwards. Suppan had a good NLCS but cmon, he's nothing more than a decent #4 pitcher or so. Jeff Weaver is total garbage who is riding one of the very few decent streaks he'll have in his career.
The knuckleheads at FOX/ESPN have to sobbing about this matchup. F'em
Imagine a guy like David Stern running baseball. Ughh. The Yankees would be in the World Series EVERY year. You'd see guys like A-Rod getting obvious strike calls called as balls or foul balls hit on the outside of the foul pole called as home runs.
