Default OT: Tigers vs Cardinals -- World Series

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).

Tigers have to be huge favorites. They should get it done in 5 games, even though the Cardinals matchup better than the Mets and their patchwork pitching.

2 straight years the Central divisions have teams in the World Series. ESPN is fuming.

Cards pitching = meh.


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.

Jeff Weaver tryign to get back at the team who drafted him.

Would be cool to see a Weaver-Bonderman matchup seeing they were the two big names in that trade.

Maybe a 1B, DH, or possibly a 3rd baseman. Lefty power.

I think this years Cards are the worst team I've ever seen in the playoffs.

1.Only one legit hitter
2.No bullpen
3.Only one worthy starting pitcher
4.No closer
5.If I'm not mistaken, the team had 2 10 game losing streaks this year.
6.Worst record for any playoff team ever

Final thoughts... THe Cards have no business being in the WS.

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.
