Cards had their chance - they hit Lester hard the inning Holliday HRd, but nothing else to show for it.

Still think Wacha gets Cards to Game 7.

Or are se supposed to be politically correct, and pretend that there are no language problems in MLB players who are not fluent in English, because it might make them pout to have somebody admit it. Don't forget my insensitivity for referring to a "little guy", who is probably very self conscious about that.

Now, if we can go back to analyzing what is happening on the field, instead of building a more formidable monster of political correctness,
If Craig can play first replacing Adams, why can't he play third replacing Freese?

It's the first inning, and I predict the final score will be 1-0.
Kolten was leaning toward second base with his feet and did not have them planted back down when Koji made that timely throw. Koji executed perfected. True, the pick-off was not about language barriers.

In this series Ortiz has seemed to hit for high average something like Rogers Hornsby, has the power of Barry Bonds, and the speed of Bo Jackson.

Ortiz took Wacha over the wall in game 2, kid throws hard but they will figure him out! Remember game 2 was really thrown away by the Red Sox with that awful 3rd base play basically giving those 2 runs away. Take that play out and it was a tie game.

That being said, both teams will be home trick or treating with their kids on Halloween with the Red Sox being crowned World Series Champions!

Really? If it had been a three-game series, with all three in St. Louis, the Red Sox still would have won it, and would have won all three, but for a bad throw by the catcher. How the hell are the Cards now going to sweep two in Fenway? It's a laugher.

It is only 6-0 with 5 innings still to play. All the Cardinals need to do is to just go out there and play hard for nine innings, not worry about tomorrow, look for a pitch to hit and try to get their bats on it, and stay within 110% of themselves.
