    John Hirschbeck will lead the umpiring crew for the World Series, Major League Baseball just announced.  Joining him will be Dana DeMuth,  Jim Joyce, Paul Emmel, Bill Miller and Mark Wegner. Hirschbeck — who skews a bit pitcher friendly — was the crew chief for the All-Star Game too. During this past season he had a…

    Ticket

    Deadspin has a story which should impress upon all of you the importance of good keyboarding skills and/or math and/or calendar awareness: It seems one of their readers hopped on StubHub looking for World Series tickets and found one for $3. He bought it, and after the service charges he has a ticket to Game…

    It came as no surprise when Red Sox manager John Farrell announced this afternoon that Jon Lester will start Game 1 of the World Series against the Cardinals on Wednesday, but there could be a change in store for Game 2. While Clay Buchholz started Game 2 of the ALCS against the Tigers, Sean McAdam…

    If you’ve already had enough of “The Cardinal Way” and the whole idea that they do things better and classier and everything than everyone else, by all means DO NOT go read Bernie Miklasz’s column in the Post-Dispatch today, because it’s gonna make you crazy: “Cardinal Way” isn’t the name of a city street near…

    St. Louis already announced that Adam Wainwright will get the Game 1 assignment and now Boston has announced that Jon Lester will be his opponent. No surprise, as Lester started Game 1 of the ALDS versus Tampa Bay and Game 1 of the ALCS versus Detroit. Overall this postseason the left-hander has started three times…

  7. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EST

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

    XKCD

    Between this Wednesday and a week from Thursday there are going to be between four and seven cool baseball games which will result in one team being crowned world champion.

    OK, so she doesn’t have anything to do with Boston, but Mary J. Blige is great and she’s singing the National Anthem for Game 1 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. What, you wanted another reality show contestant? MJB is one of the all-time great voices and just an all-around badass for like 20 years…

  10. Cardinals’ forgotten man Shelby Miller trying stay ready

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Despite an excellent rookie season in which he won 15 games with a 3.06 ERA and 169 strikeouts in 173 innings Shelby Miller has been a forgotten man for the Cardinals in the playoffs, as St. Louis shifted him to the bullpen in favor of Joe Kelly/Lance Lynn and has used him just once as…

  11. Red Sox are World Series favorites (according to Las Vegas)

    As HBT’s resident degenerate I feel it’s my duty to pass along the gambling odds for the World Series. Boston is a -140 favorite, which means you’d have to risk $140 to win $100 on the Red Sox becoming champions. On the flip side, St. Louis is a +120 underdog, which means risking $100 would…

  12. 1946, 1967, 2004 and 2013: The Sox and Cards do battle again

    Slaughter Mad Dash

    While I’m sure many Red Sox fans were looking forward to a rematch of the 1916 World Series with the Brooklyn Robins (what, you don’t remember that?), the Red Sox are matched up with their historically most familiar World Series rival: the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the fourth matchup between these storied franchises. They met in…

  13. As expected, the Cardinals will go with Adam Wainwright in Game 1 of the World Series

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    In the least shocking bit of news you’ll hear this week, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will send ace Adam Wainwright to the mound to start Game 1 of the World Series against the Red Sox, tweets Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY. Wainwright has been nothing short of excellent for the Cardinals, dating all the way…
