World Series: Game 1

Last night’s Game 1 was a chess match between the two managers: Tony La Russa and Ron Washington. Which team would emerge victorious to take a 1-0 lead in the Series? I thought the Rangers would win, but it was the Cardinals prevailing by a score of 3-2. La Russa made all the right managing moves, including putting Allen Craig (who?) to pinch hit for Chris Carpeter. In that AB, Craig got the game-winning single, although it was in the 6th inning. Tony’s riding the hot hand and his team is benefiting greatly from his managerial decisions.

This World Series brings up an interesting predicament: will Albert Pujols be back next year? If the Cardinals win the World Series, I’ll say yes. However, if they come up short, especially after taking a 1-0 lead, I don’t think he’ll resign. He’ll think that even with him on this team, they aren’t good enough to win a World Series. Well, I’m off to school, hopefully when I come back I can write a bit more.

Till tomorrow,
