    Re: From a Cardinal Fan....Good Luck to the Red Sox!

    The Cards are a great organization.  And their fans have every reason to be passionate as heck for them.  They are the model of the NL.

    I hope for a great series between two old-school, historic, legendary franchises with a great WS history between them: '46, '67, '04, and now 2013.

    But, alas...go Sox!

    I go back to 1946 WS, where Cardinals came back from 3-2 and won it 7 games. In 1967, the great Bob Gibson beat the Red Sox in Fenway Park in Game 7. Of course, in 2004, Red Sox swept the series in 4 games.

    Cardinals hold the 2-1 advantage in WS matchups.

    Cardinals have 11 World Titles 

    Red Sox have  7 World Titles

    Cardinals last won the World Title in 2011

    Red Sox last won the World Title in 2007

    2013 Cardinals budget  $116,702,085 (11th out of 30 MLB teams)

    2013 Red Sox budget  $158,967,286 (4th out of 30 MLB teams)

     

    Great contrast of two different regions and cultures. The great city of St. Louis in the heart of the midwest with old American values, and the old city of Boston in the urban northeast with new untried American values.

    The Cardinals with the long-standing great farm system and value driven approach to winning more with less, and the Red Sox with the recently improved farm system and the high budget approach win with more.

    The Cardinals with a loyal fanbase that are the most well versed baseball fans who love baseball for the game itself, and the Red Sox pink hat and Yuppie fanbase with a lot of transplanted bandwagon fans that come and go.  

     

    While the Cardinals are the proven superior organization, both all-time and recently, this series should resemble something closer to the 1946 and 1967 series, than it does to the 2004 Red Sox sweep.

    I saw the thread about the Red Sox fans expecting a sweep. I don't see it that way.

    Welcome aboard, PB. Gotta admit,  I was  rooting for the Dodgers simply because I felt they were more beatable. You guys scare me.

    Hope you'll hang around for the Series ... it's good to have  cool fans  from the other side.

    Classy post from a visiting opponent....nice to see! Back atcha PrairieBayou! Should be a great series. I admit to having felt relief over not having to face that Dodgers monstrosity of a team, but it was short lived as I realize how well balanced and dangerous those Cards are. Lord knows I REALLY want to win game 1. This is not a team to allow a lead to. I don't trust those bastards....Haha! Just joshing ya PrairieBayou!! It's always a great pleasure of mine to welcome opposing team visitors who display decorum and class, such as yourself, to the board. Heck, we even welcome that scoundrel Pinstripezac and other Yankee fans here. Now THAT's tolerance!!   Tongue Out

    PB, 

    Thank you for the nice email to Boston Dot Com. I know who has the best team, THE RED SOX. Just pulling your leg. Both teams are great and evenly matched. We're looking forward to a great series, probably seven games right down to the wire.

    Cheers,

    Hetch

    Fellow Cardinal fan, might I remind you that you are an opposing team's forum and urge to be a a polite guest.  Not that anything you said was totally insulting, but the undertones were there!!

    Wow. You should definitely stick around. We need more of that sentiment here.

    Lovely post you made btw. I'm sure it's going to be nail-biting, which is really exciting/scary, but I already made a thread about how we beat the Cardinals in the WS. Sorry. :)

    Classy gesture, redbirdman.  Since I've been following the Red Sox so closely, I haven't had time to peek in on the Cards.  I expect to learn a lot about them in the coming week.  Please stop by and provide some insights during the series.

           Good to have you here. What I like most about the Card's are there fans. In 2004 they stood and cheered at the conclusion of game 4. Since then I hoped they would represent the NL every year in the WS.

           I don't see anything close to a repeat of that series. As much as I want the Sox to beat the Card's losing to them wouldn't sting a bit. You guys represent what a real fan base should be. All of us here could and should take notice and learn from you.

           Enjoy the series.
