  1. Lineup change suggests Cardinals are ready for small ball

    If you did a million World Series simulations last week — and I assume someone out there probably did — Game 5 almost surely ended up being the lowest scoring contest of the bunch. It’s simply a rematch of Game 1 with Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright facing off again, but this time it’s in…

  2. Which ending was weirder: Game 3 or Game 4?

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    We sports fans will argue about anything. ANYTHING. Everyone knows that. We will not only argue about who the American League MVP should be, we will argue about the Dolphins’ new helmet (old one better), we will argue about Frank Caliendo’s best impression (Morgan Freeman), we will argue about the strongest arm in the NFL…

  3. At least Kolten Wong has someone to talk to about that game-ending pickoff play

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:53 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    Matthew gave us Kolten Wong’s side of the story on that game-ending pickoff play last night. Here’s history’s side of the story. Via an email from my friend Mark Armour, I am reminded of another World Series pickoff play. It didn’t actually end a game, but it did end the last good chance for the…

  4. Kolten Wong: “My foot slipped”

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:04 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    The last thing a forlorn Kolten Wong wanted to do after getting picked off to end St. Louis’ Game 4 loss on Sunday was talk to reporters in front of his locker, but he stood up to the mics and answered questions anyway. Wong on pickoff: “I knew I was dead once I went to…

  5. The million fluky things that go into winning a World Series game

    Oct 27, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    - Allen Craig, hobbled by a painful foot injury that nearly ruled him out for the postseason, scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth Saturday on the first ever obstruction call to end a postseason game. – Craig scored because Jarrod Saltalamacchia, whom manager John Farrell forgot to take out of the…

  6. The back-and-forth continues, Red Sox knot the game at 4-4 in the eighth

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    The Red Sox were responsible for the fourth lead-change of the night as they knotted Game 3 up at four apiece with a two-run rally in the bottom of the eighth against the exalted Cardinal bullpen. Carlos Martinez put the first two batters he faced on base, allowing a lead-off single to Jacoby Ellsbury, then…

  7. Cardinals’ injuries taking a toll with elimination near

    Oct 6, 2013, 9:03 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau, Matt Adams

    In some ways, the Cardinals are better off than most. They don’t lose much at first base with Matt Adams filling in for Allen Craig, and they’re still fine in the ninth since Trevor Rosenthal replaced the sore-shouldered Edward Mujica in the closer’s role. But the truth is that both injuries played huge roles in…

  8. Handicapping the NL Rookie of the Year race

    Apr 2, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…
