I assume since they're both from the mid-west that the liquid they're spewing is gravy.

Sorry for all you coasters who hate the Midwest, but we are having a pretty fun time with it here in St. Louis. The back-to-back angle of it is hard to ignore.

What is so uninteresting about the Cardinals and Detroit?

It isn't over yet but if the Cardinals take care of business there is plenty to like about this matchup. ;-D ;-D

The Cardinals don't have a single player on their team worth writing an article about that is interesting to anybody other than stat nerds, and the Tigers have Miguel Cabrera, who is far less interesting when he's not getting DUIs, Justin Verlander, who we can only talk about his 100 MPH fastball for so long, and Prince Fielder, who hasn't been interesting since everything about him referenced his 'estranged father'. It's a huge pile of boring. There's less charisma on those two teams combined than few other teams in the league. There's no 'story', nothing to root for if you're not invested in one of the teams already. The Cards made it without Albert Pujols? Yawn. People want superstars, any star power really, and the Cardinals have about as much of it as the Padres, despite being an excellent team. Nothing exciting like a Strasburg or a Harper or Trout, or hating the Yankees or Sox, or underdog like Baltimore or Oakland. That is why the vast majority of average baseball fans will find the matchup boring. It's a pretty similar story if it's the Giants, somehow, instead of the Cardinals, too.

This. I don't hate STL as much this year since TLR is gone but there's still nothing that interests me there. And while I like MCab a lot, Detroit has always been meh to me. I almost wish the Yankees had lost to Baltimore so at least there would have been a chance of seeing them in there.

If you want names the All-Star game is in July. The best moments of the playoffs so far this year have been provided by Pete Kozma and Raul Ibanez. The best moments of last year was provided by David Freese. The Cardinals trying to go back to back with no Pujols and no LaRussa would be a huge story. Verlander and the Tigers returning to the WS to try and redeem the 2006 should be a huge story. The teams might have been here before but there are plenty of established stars that would be playing for thier first ring. Interesting baseball is all that matters not the media stories. I don't remember too many people being exciting about last year's matchup and it was fantastic.
