How Uninteresting Was This Year's World Series?

I couldn't even bother to watch the Series this year. How dull are the Tigers and Cardinals? Maybe it's just the letdown of watching the Yankees bow out early and then seeing the Mets blow it, I really thought they were gonna take that last game. Can someone tell me when Jeff Weaver learned to pitch again? Why couldn't he have pitched the way he did in the playoffs when he was with the Yankees. Anyway, here's a model sheet from "Baseball Bugs".

My bro-in-law is a huge Cardinals fan, so I'm very happy that they won the World Series. :)

I'm sure we can all agree that there certainly has been a dearth of New York participation in the post-season over the past hundred years or so. And I'm sure we can also agree that it's a really bad baseball year when one of the New York teams isn't is the series.

Still, those of us in the vast wasteland between the oceans feel so fulfilled when one of our little teams makes it.

Particularly when it's a team that no one expected to break .500, whose very young players are going to be back for many years to come, that has young strong arms as far as the eye can see, and who simply dominated the Yanks and A's.

New York baseball fans: are you really looking forward to next year as much as we all are?

Congrats, Cards, great Series.

Detroit's run was a nice surprise, I didn't expect them to dominate the A.L> in the postseason. They seemed to run out of gas near the end of the season but they turned it on just in time.
