Seven to Go!

Tonight, the Cards put it to the Astros, and won the first game of the NLCS 10-7.

And, it was an impressive victory, with Pujols smacking another homer, and a whole bunch of base hits. This team really seems to be gelling, and it’s fun to watch them play. There’s almost a quiet expectation that they will make it to the World Series, and that they have a very good opportunity to win it.

I expect that the AL representative will be the Yankees. After beating Boston tonight, and going up 2-0 in the series, they are looking to make short work of Boston. The BoSox have been fighting gallantly, but I don’t think it’ll be enough — the Yankees just appear too strong.

So, how do you feel about a St. Louis-New York World Series?
