As a St. Louisan I follow the Cardinals although the Cubs are my favorite team. I am amazed the Cards made the playoffs, they have a fairly poor team, particularly offensively. Their pitching is excellent.
Much to my surprise I have enjoyed the shortened baseball season and the unique rules under which it has been played. There is an excitement to the fact that almost every team can make the playoffs. I have enjoyed the designated hitter rule and the 7 inning doubleheader’s. They made serious mistakes by extending the contract of Matt Carpenter who is one of the poorest hitters in baseball and Dexter Fowler. Former players such as Luke Voit, Marcell Ozuna, and Randall Griuchek have been superb. I think the Cardinal ownership is content to maintain an average product.
In the end I believe the Dodgers and Yankees will meet in the World Series with the Dodgers winning it all. Written by Paul Dribin
