I'd rather see a STL/BOS series or STL/OAK. I want to see how they handle a great pitching staff. Or the best would be STL/TEX, the best IF of today against the best of tomorrow, that would be awesome.
I agree. I've spent the last couple of weeks explaining to my wife (or attempting to explain) how much fun a STL/TEX World Series would be.
Back to the original topic, I have to say that series like this one are what show my true feelings about this team. Obviously, the team is going great - couldn't be better. I am so concerned that the team will let up against the "fluff" teams, lose a series to them, and then go into a nosedive afterwards. After the first game of this series, I was right back to being concerned again, but after last night I came to the realization that this team has not let up one bit against Montreal and the first loss was just a single loss. I really think this team can go all the way, but I'm just not 100% convinced yet.
I guess my issue is that I was only 4 years old when the Cards won the Series in '82. I've seen a couple of "almosts" and some NLCS disappointments, but I've never really been a fan when the team was playing like a World Series champion for this amount of time. I guess this is uncharted emotional territory for me (their unbridled success), and it's tearing me up inside.
Maybe I have St.-Louis-Blues-phobia: Fear of hope for the postseason because they never win the game that counts.
Whatever the case, I'm still going to camp out for World Series tickets when they come to the city.
