Well, the Cards pulled it off, and beat the Astros in 12 innings tonight! I — along with a great many fans in St. Louis, I’d bet — began to have my doubts late in the game when the Astros tied it up, but Jim Edmonds made us all believers again.
So now it’s time to focus on the ALCS. Will it be Boston or New York? I’m sure hoping for Boston, although many folks at work believe the Yankees would be easier to face in the World Series. Given the way their bats have been swinging, I’m not so convinced of that.
I’ll take either one though. Just give me a World Series in St. Louis!
