I know some fans won’t be watching because there isn’t a big market team in the game, but I’ll be tuning in to see some of the best hitters in the game go at it.
On the Cardinals side of it, you have the best hitter in the game in Albert Pujols and the NLCS MVP in David Freese. I think most people will sleep on the Cardinals, but offensively they are very good. They don’t have the mashers that Texas does, but they steal bases and play small ball. The Cardinals have home field advantage, which means the Rangers will have to adjust to the National League style of play. Texas has the better starting rotation and bullpen, even though the Cardinals have the best pitcher in this matchup with Chris Carpenter.
I like the Cardinals to win this series in seven. Texas has 3 left handers in the starting rotation and Pujols absolutely kills left handed pitching. Lets go Cards.
