So game 1 of the World Series was an 8-1 blow out. St. Louis' ace pitcher, Adam Wainwright, threw as he puts it, “garbage” all night. Not only that but their defense was anything but defensive. Dare I say, their defense was…offensive? And St. Louis' offense was non existent; however, could that be because of the goop that was in the glove of Boston’s pitcher?
Game 2 was pretty much a regular good ol’ evenly matched World Series game. That is until Boston allowed the winning run to score on an errant throw to third base. This brings us to…
Game 3, which by and large was just a good game with a crazy finish. Let’s face it, Boston and St. Louis are the two best teams with the best records in each of their leagues. By all “rights” these are the two teams that SHOULD be playing in the World Series. So theoretically, it should be the back and forth pitching and hitting dual, which it has been for the most part. So it stands to reason that it’s the odd things that are going to decide things this year. Never mind that it was another bad throw to third base by Boston that allowed the winning run to score but…that run was scored by a guy that can’t and probably isn’t supposed to be running (Allen Craig)…was tagged out but called safe because of all things…an obstruction call against Boston that really could have prevented the hurt guy from running in the first place....to end the game! This was a demoralizing defeat that would be challenging for anyone to come back from so how could Boston possibly rebound the next night?
Game 4….by of all things ending the game with a walk off pick off at first base with one of the best post season hitters at the plate who never even got to swing the bat.
Well…game 5 tonight, which is a rematch against the formerly “garbage” throwing Wainwright and the “goop glove” Lester. I kind of feel like the only thing missing is Beyonce singing “God Bless America” only to have the stadium lights go out like during the Super Bowl!
Stay tuned kids! I don't know if you can call this the best World Series ever. But it's by far the most entertaining by each game!
