The Tigers should win this in 4 or 5 games.

I don't really care who wins, though, so I'm going to go for the Cards to make the series interesting and hopefully go 7 games. But I'll say Tigers in 5 (they'll lose whichever game Robertson starts).

Tigers will sweep. Rogers, Robertson, Verlander, and Bonderman are too tough.

If the Cardinals win the World Series, it will be the biggest upset since the Reds swept the A's in 1990, or the Dodgers beat the A's in 5 in 1988.

While I cannot say I'd like to see the Tigers win, would it not be the best from the Sox' perspective for them to win it all? No need to have them playing next year with a chip on their shoulder, like they have something to prove. Not that easy to repeat, is it? :cool:

I'd rather have them playing with a chip on their shoulder next year than a horseshoe up their ass like this year. They will be a third place team at best.

tigers in 6. The Cards have enough moxie to pull out a few tricks, but Tiger pitching is too strong.

I always pull for the AL in the series as a matter of principle.

Barring a fluke, the Tigers have already won the WS. The red boids don't stand a chance. La Rusa should throw in the towel to save his team and the national league further embarassment.
This is like Tyson vs Mcneely (95).

I like the Cardinals because St. Louis is a great baseball town and Cubs fans hate the Cardinals. However, I really don't think they have a chance in the series. I just don't want Detroit to sweep, because I want the Sox 11-1 run of last year to remain very special.

Yes it would be such an upset as those two, but similarly (to say the Dodgers example), the Cards actually have some decent pitching that makes them a tougher opponent than the Mets might have been (in spite of their paltry 83 win backing into the playoffs from weakest division).

Leland vs LaRussa's going to get overplayed to death -- be prepared

Have to root for the AL team (& sorry to GE Smith, a lifelong Cards nut who sadly passed away a few months ago). Besides the Tigers are on a roll, as the '06 team of destiny (like the '05 Sox were).

You read my mind. This is how I feel. I like the Cardinals, because they annoy Cub fans. However, the Tigers pitching is too good this year, especially with word that Zumaya is healthy and ready to pitch in the World Series. I'm hoping the Cardinal's can win one game in this year's World Series, so that the Sox 11-1 run (in the 2005 playoffs) you mentined remains intact.

10-20-2006, 09:16 AM
I personally think that a team who has only won 83 regular season games shouldn't be allowed near a World Series game and they should forfeit and allow the Sox to go to Detroit and defend their trophy. (that's 1/2 teal).

But yeah, Tigers in 5, they'll lose the first game because they've been resting for a week, but then they'll get back in it.

A little of topic, but Oblong, does Detroit have "a song"?

I say the tiggers in 5. Their Bullpen is lights out. The best part about this whole series is the lack of two teams from Gotham. I love how one sided the telecast was last night. Almost no excitement in Joe Buck's call of the home run. It was just a...Aww crap, another series with small to mid market teams.:whiner: The only spin ESPN is using is, did you see that catch, one of the best ever. That is their leadin on TV and the radio. Then, Oh yeah the Cards one the series. Classic.

With all the hate for Fox and ESPN on WSI, I'd have thought this outcome (which I wanted) would have been more popular. I want Fox to continue taking a bath on the World Series until they finally give up the broadcasting rights and it reverts to one of the old three networks.

With luck the 2006 World Series will be even lower-rated than 2005, and Fox's advertisers will be pissed.

Tigers in 5. 11 in a row is insane and they've already bitten enough of the 2005 Sox story. We don't need them doing an 11-1 run through the playoffs as well.

It's futile to think the Cards will put up much more of a fight, though.

Frater Perdurabo
10-20-2006, 10:21 AM
Per Voodoo's directive, I'm re-posting this here from the closed thread:

I'm pleased that this is the second year in which both World Series teams are from their respective leagues' Central Divisions.

For sentimental reasons I slightly prefer the underdog Cardinals, but a Tigers win probably would motivate the Sox more (and might make the Tigers a teeny bit complacent in 2007).

I want the Series to go five games because I am going to be in downtown St. Louis on Thursday night (Oct. 26) for an unrelated convention. I'd love it if the Cards could win it in five and I could be there for the celebration, but I know that's not very likely.

Will they even have the World Series on TV, or just run score updates at the bottom of the screen?"

10-20-2006, 10:48 AM
I've always kinda liked the Cardinals, and they did get up on the count of nine last night to take a game 7 in an enemy ballpark. If that doesn't give them a little mojo, I don't know what would.

Cardinals in seven. Yes, another Game 7 win on the road. It would be one of those great stories that seem to come up fairly regularly.

BTW, get ready for endless references to the 1968 WS between these teams. McLain, Gibson, Lolich, etc etc. One of the great World Series of all time. :smile:

GE Smith died??? When did that happen? Don't tell me, I'll look it up shortly, but man, that's a shock.

As for the song... not really. When the team won during the regular season they'd play "Celebration". They've played that for years. There's also a song from the 60s called "Go Get Em Tigers" that's played for nostalgia sake. But there's nothing like what you guys had last year with the Journey song, which I liked, by the way. I thought it was cool.

The guy that owns the Tigers also owns the REd Wings and every year for the playoffs they come up with these stupd slogans and songs. It's very cheesy and embarasing, especially after first round exits. I'm glad nothing was done, yet, for the Tigers. Those things have to happen on their own, like the Journey thing with the Sox.

I'm predicting Tigers in 5. But I'm nervous... as always.

Detroit in 6 because I think they have better starting pitching. As far as rooting interest is concerned, I like both teams. I think I'll root for Detroit because of the AL Central ties. I'm just happy as hell it's not a Mets-Yankees Series.

Tigers sweep. It's a tradition started in 2004 by the Red Sox (and Cards).
We beat the Cards 20-6 (20-2 going into the 9th). They suck.
Another disadvantage for the Cards:They're in the National League. They cannot beat the Cubs.

Whoever has the best chance to beat the Tigers got my support - hopefully the Cards can come through.

Anyone rooting for the ****ing Tigers should be ashamed to call themselves a Sox fan. They're our division rival, remember? :dunno:

That being said, I'm afraid the Tigers (and about 10 other AL teams) are much better than the Cardinals. But stranger things have happened in a 7 game series...

Oh no, here we go again.

There are good arguments on both sides of this issue, I believe. Some don't want to root for the Tigers because they're our division rival, and some want to represent our division now that the Sox aren't playing.

Regardless, it's an issue that I think we can all agree we are pretty evenly divided on and I think that makes it more fun.

Anyway, call me selfish, but I like being the only team in the AL Central to win a World Series title. And I find it pretty ****ing difficult to root for a team that I've hated since the brawl of 2000. I hated 'em then, and I hate them and their newfound "fans" this year as well. That's just my take.

We'll see what happens..

Honestly I just want my team to show up in the WS this year and get a couple wins at that.. a WS title would be amazing though.. the chances of that happening arent great but who knows? That's why they play the games!

I get seriously tired of being told what I must believe in order to be a Sox fan. I'm for the Cards just because I like the Cards. If the Mets had won, I'd have been for the Tigers. Rooting for the Tigers in the post season when the Sox aren't in it in NO WAY hurts the Sox. It's not as if we are competing for the same fans.

In fact, unless there is a team that I have developed a very specific liking or disliking for, my usual post-season pecking order is 1. Sox, 2. AL Central, 3. AL. This year, my liking of the Cardinals changes that. In other years, my hatred of the Yankees changes it. However, my criteria for choosing is not subject to your approval, and there is not one "correct" way for a Sox fan to choose.

There are only four teams in the NL that I hate: the Cardinals, the Cubs, the Astros, and the Braves. The rest, I don't mind. As far as the AL goes, I hate every single team except for the White Sox and the A's. The rest can go to hell for all I care. Even in the All-Star game, I root NL. I want the Sox players to do good, and if a Sox pitcher starts, of course I want him to win. Otherwise, I can't stand the rest of the AL.

It just makes no sense to me that the team(s) we rooted against and hated all year become the teams we all get behind.

I guess I just have a hard time switching my allegiances like that.

As far as needing my approval on who to root for, you can become Cub fan #1 for the rest of eternity for all I care - I was just stating my opinion. You think Red Sox fans were really pulling for the Yankees to go all the way this year so the AL East can have a shot at the title? Somehow, I doubt that...

I hate the Yankees based on my entire youth.

I'm not "switching allegiances." The team that holds my allegiance isn't in the fight, nor are any teams that I hate (pretty much limited to the Yankees and Cubs.) I just like to have a rooting interest, and in this year's WS it happens to be the Cardinals, but I'd have no problem rooting for the Tigers against pretty much any other NL team.

Yeah, I agree. I don't understand why people seem to think that people who root for the Tigers are somehow going against the Sox. Last I checked, the Sox weren't playing and therefore, not competing against anyone right now. :dunno:

And also - I never had a problem with the Tigers this year. I rooted against them, obviously, but I wouldn't go as far as saying I hated them. The Twins, on the other hand, are a different story...

Apples and oranges, as far as I'm concerned. Red Sox fans hate the Yankees. I suspect many of them would be rooting for Toronto, though, if they were playing instead of the Tigers. Similarly, I hate the Twins and would never be rooting for them to win. (My worst nightmare would be Twins vs. Cubs, but who are we kidding here?) I don't have anything against the Tigers. They can win, or the Cards can win. Sox are out of it, so so am I. :smile:

I'm rooting for the Cardinals in this series, but I think it'll be the Tigers in five. My friend thinks the exact opposite of what I just typed.

Who do you THINK will win, not who do you want to win?

I think the Tiggers in 5, but would prefer Tony and the Cards in 6.

Screw the Cards, I can't stand their whiney players, hokey fanbase, or goonish "If being in Close Proximity to Steroids can Give You a Contact High, I'd be The Incredible Hulk" manager. I was hoping they'd lose to the Mets, but it's not that big a deal because they'll be lucky to not get swept by the Tigers.

Cards in 2. LaRussa brought 'roids to the game and is their biggest deflector (Crusty Faker and The Tool in close pursuit). Somewhere in here his indulgence of the biggest cheaters in the history of the game must pay off. The Cards win enough in 2 games. :redneck

I should add, I don't like the Tigers. But, anybody pulling for the 'roidMeister is in favor of 'roids. This is a no win scenario folks. If you're wearing red, at least hold up the syringe you are so proud of.

This is a joke, right? First the FOFT are called FOBB's for rooting for the greatest White Sox player ever, and now those of us who hate the Tigers, and still remember what they did in 2000, are pro-steroid because we choose to root for the Cardinals?

The current Tigers team, including the coaching staff, does not consist of even one person from the 2000 squad. I admit I would find it hard to root for them if they still had Fick, Higginson, Juan Samuel, Dean Palmer, Lance Parrish, or Garner. But that's not the case, and I find it hard to root for an 83-win team from the NL in the World Series. I'd like to see the AL dominance continue to reflect the regular season records.

I find it hard to root for the NL.

Oh, but if I root for the AL everyone's going to have a fit because any team on the AL is competing against our Sox and therefore, I am not a Sox fan if I root for the AL.

I don't think I really care. :dunno:

Tigers in 6. The Cards might win game 1 on adrenaline and the Tigers' rust, and Suppan might win one (game 3 in St. Louis?). Otherwise, no chance.

A better Cards team managed to win all of zero games against the Red Sox in 2004. I don't expect better from them this time.

Meh, nobody could have touched the Red Sox in '04. They were walking on air after coming back from 0-3 against the Yankees. Detroit is the better team but the Cards are the more-experienced, better-managed team. They'll squeeze out a couple of wins in this series, one in the first two games and one at home. Detroit wins in front of the home crowd in Game 6.

A pox on all your houses. It's shameful that we're resorting to insults and name-calling just because we have a gripe with what happened in the past with a particular player or coach or team. Gosh, I better stop rooting for the White Sox since they threw the 1919 Series.

El Tigres in 5. But I do hope St. Louis can pull it off.

Most importantly, I don't want el Tigres to match our 11-1 mark. So you better ****ing win a game, Cards.

I completely agree - what's in the past is in the past. I still don't understand how people can have such strong opinions about this issue, but hey, at least it makes life interesting.

Amen!!! The steroid issue by a former Cardinal has absolutely nothing to do with this year's team, and most importantly, nothing to do with a certain HOF manager when he decides to hang them up. IF he knew, what was he going to do? "Hey Mac, quit the Andro or I'm going to sit your big butt?" Sure!!! That would have went over real well. Silently ratting out his own star? (Press: "Tony, why is Big Mac out of the line-up?" Tony: uhhhh.... he didn't listen to some advice I gave him.") PACK YOUR BAGS, TONY... who cares if you've won almost as many games as John McGraw and Connie Mack?

Just because someone pulls for a former player or former manager, others shouldn't assume that indiscretions or foolishness perpetrated by those other than the former player or former manager automatically results in condoning of others' behavior.

Conclusion: "Even though you know the boss is completely wrong, sometimes it's best to just leave it alone."

Well, everyone who picked Tiggers in a sweep, including me, are wrong! My second choice is Tiggers in five (but I hope I'll be wrong again).

Indeed, I thought it would be a Tigers romp too.

If the Tigers really are the better team, mentally as well as physically, they'll come back to win the series. But with everything in the season leading up to this, the Tigers needed this game, going against the Cardinals' fourth-best starter in this series). It might be easier against Weaver and Suppan. It might even be easier against Carpenter. That's the way it is in baseball. But the Tigers needed Verlander to show up tonight. As it stands, he's not guaranteed to get a chance to redeem himself.

Not that I'm unhappy to see the Tigers lose. I'm also not unhappy that Anthony Reyes has a World Series win, and his famous college teammate, Mark Prior, does not.

They started it in baseball. 'roids flowed freely in the clubhouse and Tony knew all about it. And he always knew all about McGwire. He is still covering up for them. I heard a laughably hysterical interview with him this year that made McGwire's congressional testimony look convincing. You can give him a free pass all you want. The fact is more 'roids have been done under his watch than any other manager and there is nobody else in the same league, not even Crusty.
