Red Sox Win!


Quillback

Recommended Posts

Well I don't want to gloat, but I am happy to see the Bosox win. I think the Cards have some of the best fans in baseball, knowledgeable, dedicated, and courteous, so all you Cards fans have my sympathy.

Wacha just didn't have it last night, he looked strong the 1st inning and I thought it was going to be tough to score on him, but after the first, he just seemed to lose it. I'm wondering if they had him trying to throw to many curve balls? He just doesn't have good control with that pitch, it's devastating if he gets it over, a great change of pace from his hard stuff, but if he misses with it, those Sox batters can focus on his fastball, because it's coming. I also wonder if the pressure got to him, tough assignment for a rookie, no matter how good his stuff is.

Cards bats went to sleep again also.

I will not be surprised to see the Cards back in the WS nest year. Boston, who knows?

and the Cardinals lost. Boston took advantage of lackluster bats. Kudos to them. As much as I hate to say it, Freeze has to go. But with all the young pitchers and Garcia coming back next year, the Cardinals should be set up for several years of good pitching.

Wainwright, Wacha, Garcia, Miller (although I don't even know what happened to him in the playoffs), and Kelly. That's a pretty good starting 5.

Things the Cardinals need: 3B that can hit, SS that can hit. Move Robinson in to center permanently. Keep Craig healthy because Big City isn't ready for 1st base yet.

Congrats to you team Quillback....they deserved to win. I thought we had some chances to get to Lackey last night, but our offense disappeared.

I was worried about playing in Fenway...tough place to win.

You have to give a young pitcher some help!!! You can't expect him to go out there and perform miracles every time out!!! You get runners on first and second with no outs, you have to score!!! repeatedly, the cards failed, esp when you have 6-9 in the lineup with no RBI's thru 6 games.........wacha had good stuff until the two out victorino off the wall hit.....but he got down in the count due to having to try to be perfect.....same reason why he hit the guy in front of him......the drew home run, again, he was un nerved from the inning before ...and total lack of O...(all IMO)

The ending was sad but overall it was a great season, We had team that was fun to watch and only two towns had an extra three weeks of baseball.

Yeah, you just wish they'd have hit the way they were capable of hitting throughout the year. The difference on offense was simply that Boston got some timely hits and the Cards never did. Neither team batted well (except for Ortiz, and to a lesser extent, Craig for the Cards). Just seems like the bats go cold at some point in the post-season. Yes, it's against good pitching, but the Sox pitchers after Hester weren't THAT good.

Best record in the National League and getting to the Word Series ain't bad...all but one other team would take that in a minute! But this team does have holes. They need a center fielder with a little more arm, a little more range, and a little more bat. They'll probably need to replace Beltran. And it would be nice to have an upgrade at 3rd...much as Freese did for them in the past, it looks like he isn't going to be the answer in the future. Kozma will never be a much better hitter than he is now, unless he channels Ozzie. But geez, no team has a .300 hitter at every position.

agree Al!!! just like last year, the bats went sour.....would like to see beltran around at least another year, but would probably have to be two.....that might be a stretch!! move mcarp to 3rd, wong to 2nd, robinson more playing time in cf/or something......until taveras arrives ready.....keep adams around......keep craig healthy.........I think we are loaded on the mound.......Going to be a long wait until April.......
