Our pre-game post had it right – the St. Louis Cardinals are World Champs. Congrats to Tony LaRussa, World Series MVP David Freese, and the great fans in St. Louis.
With or without Luis Pujols, they should be a strong contender to repeat next season. Dodger fans, however, can also look forward to next season, hopefully with new, committed, knowledgeable ownership, and a strong team built around perhaps the game’s two greatest young stars, Matt Kemp (39, 126, .324) and Clayton Kershaw (21-5, 2.28, 248 Ks).
The Angels can overtake a demoralized Texas Rangers team with the addition of a couple of pitchers (maybe in a trade for the worthless Vernon Wells?) and a healthy Kendrys Morales.
Four months till spring training.
