I'm rooting for St. Louis. Like the Cardinals, like the ballpark, like the city. That they're a Midwest team makes it even better.

Just can't root for Boston. All the Yankees-Boston love on ESPN and elsewhere makes me nauseous.

Plus, one of my coworkers is an absolutely diehard Cardinals fan, so if St. Louis wins, that will make him happy. I'm cool with that.

Cards and Giants are my two favorite NL teams. So it's easy to root for St. Louis. And quite frankly, Boston's fans as a group are just obnoxious.

Spent all day trying to pick a 90$ SRO ticket or 125$ bleacher seat from the Red Sox since I work about 10 minutes from Fenway...so of course I hit on one as soon as I get home. Not worth showing up late in my opinion. Damn. Try again tomorrow.

Lotsa single seats still out there, if I was a crazy Red Sox fan, Id be all over it.

Aside from the Casinos(they've always been good to me) I hate absolutely everything about St Louis.

Plus I think home field is the difference.

Boston in 7.

Well, it only took 4 outs for the umpires to further their case that they are utterly useless.

THE HUMAN ELEMENT!

They got the call right in the end. Not sure they actually have the authority to overrule the 2nd base ump on a call at 2nd base, but that should have been safe all around on FC E6 which is what it ended up as.

Now Napoli doubles everyone in. So to some extent it's less of an issue than a sac fly might have been.

Turned into one extra run compared to if the call stood. Whether that will matter only another 8 innings will tell...

They did get it right, but the ump was 6 feet from the play staring right at it. No excuse.

Not gonna matter if the Cards keep playing crappy defense like this. Gonna get blown out early in this first game at this rate.

The 2006 Tigers think these Cardinals are a joke in the field.

It seems like an impossible call to miss from where he was but at least he swallowed his pride and asked for help; would have been a shame not to correct the situation right there.

Beltran out with bruised ribs; aren't those walls heavily padded? How tough is Torii Hunter?

Bulls vs. Thunder in the preseason is officially more interesting than this game. Yawn.

Keep in mind it is a lot colder tonight, those type of injuries will tighten up a lot quicker. That could be some karmic payback for plunking Hanley Ramirez and knocking him out of that series.
