Tigers and Cardinals...Mickey Lolich vs. Bob Gibson...Dizzy Dean and the Gas House Gang. Great baseball history. Will we remember Suppan vs. Verlander in 30 years? Hopefully. The Cardinals have the worst record for a World Series participant in recent memory...Maybe ever.
I am normally a National League guy all the way, but I am tired of the Cards. Ever since Mark Maguire retired, it is hard to root for them. I will be going for the Tigers. The Tigers can continue the trend of old-school teams winning the series. Red Sox, White Sox and now the Tigers. Of course, the Cardinals aren't the new kids on the block like the Marlins or Arizona. Hopefully it will stretch out to 7 games that are pitching duals.
