St. Louis Cardinals vs. Boston Red Sox

Who do you like in the World Series?

I have a soft spot for the Sox and their Curse of the Bambino, but then again they did break the curse in 2004 and sweep the Cards.

And I like St. Louis, too, so maybe it's time for the Cards to even the score.

Either way, I probably won't be watching, but will see the highlights and read about it in the paper. And here, of course.

The Cards are 2nd the Yankees in how many times they've been to the World Series (sorry no link).

The Cardinals know how to win under pressure, against the odds. I think they'll take it.

Boston Red Sox and boston fans in general have way surpassed Yankee fans in their obnoxiousness. Constantly posting on fB when they are a t a game. WHO THE FUCK CARES. It's like they have nothing else going on in the city except sports and they take it WAY too seriously. UGH.

I want whichever team forgoes the Series beard crap. I hate facial hair, and this particularly manly affectation of not shaving during the Series is annoying as all hell.

Of course, probably none of them avoid it, so I'd have to go with Boston since they have naturally beardless Japanese players.

Unfortunately, the national audience will most likely see little of Daniel Nava during this World Series, since the Red Sox have several players who can cover left field.

In my opinion, Daniel is the cutest member of the Red Sox this season.

Game 1 of the World Series last night not only saw a win by the Boston Red Sox over the St. Louis Cardinals but also for Fox who were easily No. 1 with a 4.1/11 rating and 13.73 million viewers.

The Fenway Park match-up Wednesday between the 2004 World Series competitors hit a home run for the network with a 28% rise in fast nationals from last year’s all-time low of 3.2/9, which went up to 3.6/10 in the final numbers.

With big audience draws like the Red Sox and the Cardinals, this year’s Game 1 also rose 25% in fast national viewership to 13.73 million over 2012’s 11.0 million, which went up to 12.2 in the final numbers.

Those numbers are pathetic in comparison to how it used to be...or even the Super Bowl.

BOSTON (AP) — With the Boston Red Sox back in the World Series, television ratings jumped for the opener.

Boston's 8-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals drew an 8.6 national rating, a 14 share and 14.4 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research said Thursday.

The rating was up 13 percent from the 7.6/12 for San Francisco's 8-3 victory over Detroit last year, which was a record low for a World Series opener. Wednesday night's game was seen by 14.4 million viewers, an 18 percent increase from 12.2 million last year and the most-watched Series opener since the Giants' 11-7 win over Texas in 2010 was seen by 15 million.

Wednesday's game peaked with 16.9 million viewers during the second inning, when the Red Sox scored twice and took a 5-0 lead.

The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a program, and the share is the percentage tuned to a broadcast among the TV households with sets on at the time.

I hope Carlos Beltran (Cardinals) is actually ready to play tonight and not doing the same thing Hanley Ramirez (Dodgers) did in the National League Championship Series -- play with a fractured rib.

Wonder if the Cards' Michael Wacha can pitch the team to victory over the Sox tonight. The Cardinals last World Series victory over Boston came in 1967. St. Louis has lost five straight World Series game to Boston since then.

Glad the Cards won last night and tied up the series.

MLB must be happy, too, now that thewy're going to at least five games.

That says more about the warped standards of the ESPN viewers than anything.

Their uniforms are childish and silly, like something a pre-schooler would wear.

That's two games apiece.

So this series is going to at least six games. Nice.

I like colorful baseball players. It's part of the charm of the game. But those Ozark Mountain beards on some of the Sox players are weirding me out. Is there a history behind them? I am in the hated Brooklyn, New York and we don't hear much good about the Red Sox around here. If any Sox fan can illuminate or educate it would be greatly appreciated. I'm really enjoying this Series. Quirky plays and bizarre errors are skirting on the edge of Twilight Zone territory. Is the dreaded Curse trying to make a come back?

by Anonymousreply 7210/28/2013

Both teams making stupid mistakes. I want to see the Red Sox lose in a game 7 on a bad throw from home to third base. It would also be cool if another century-long curse was hoisted on them.
