They got the big time favorable draw with Texas clowning the last 3 weeks.

As for the Cardinals, I'm really tired of them, but damn they fight.
I hope our hitters could have watched the Cardinals hitters last night. Nobody tried to do too much. Just wait on your pitch and drive it. Chip away a little at a time and you could see the building enthusiasm in the dugout. I'm not a Cardinals fan but it was a beautiful thing to behold. What a great series and I'd have to say the playoffs so far have been a real positive for MLB.

The Cardinals are simply "solid" and I say that with great respect. They get guys out of the minor league system that produce, they sign good solid free agents who don't do more than they are capable of doing and they have a good front office...not flashy, you won't read a lot of comments from them in the papers...all they do is play the game the right way and win.

As far as Detroit, they have three superstars. Three guys among the highest paid players in the game each of whom can literally carry a team to victory. That's a tough combination to beat. And Scherzer is close to joining that group of three with his ability to dominate.

Dombrowski (who grew up a Sox fan) had built a farm system the envy of baseball in Montreal and showed with a big budget he can win with Florida and Detroit. He's a damn fine G.M. (and to think Hawk fired him because he was a Hemond / Veeck hire...)

The Cardinals are my second favorite team, behind the Sox so I am one happy Cardinals fan right now! I just wish the Sox performed as well under pressure as the Cardinals do. Complete opposites in that regard.

And the Cardinals have two top prospects who will likely be with the big club next season. 21-year old pitcher Shelby Miller replaced injured SP Jaime Garcia on the NLDS roster, which I think carries over to the NLCS. Miller was rated the #8 prospect in baseball prior to the 2012 season. 20-year old OF Oscar Tavares was #40, and he had a great full season in AA: .321/.380/.572, with 23 HRs and 94 RsBI (and 67 extra base hits in just 124 games).

"Nobody went up there trying to hit a six run homer" -- Daniel Descalso.

As stated earlier, the Sox could take a lesson.

Absolutely. Alexei Ramirez is the antithesis of that idea.

Ironically the guy who replaced Strasburg had the only outstanding game as a starter for them in the series.
