2013 World Series Quick Preview: St. Louis Cardinals at Boston, plus Tigers update

Preview

The Boston hitters have to face a tough pitching staff and St Louis has rolled through the playoffs pretty easily. St Louis has a decent lineup that will get to the Red Sox pitchers eventually. Ortiz and Victorino won't hit enough, and no amount of facial hair will help. If I want to see beards, I'll watch Duck Dynasty at 10pm tonight. The Cardinals bats get hot, and St Louis is the 2013 champion.
