Not only have I been enjoying the electric headlines this World Series has produced so far, I’ve also been taking in the beefy quotes like a starved mountain lion. The latest thought provoking gem comes courtesy of Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols. To give a little background, since the series is now tied at 2-2, three games remain in the series. Said series will be decided when one of the two participating teams wins two of the aforementioned three remaining games. Here’s Al:
“Now it’s a best out of three,” Pujols said. “See who can win two games. At the end, that’s who is going to be raising the trophy.”
Really great stuff here. To rehash, when either the Cards or Rangers win two of the next three games, it will be the end, and the winner will be revealed on Fox for the world to see. It’s stuff like this that keeps me coming back for more. If I’m one of the beat reporters in the room when Albert delivers that quote, I may very well have beaten it right there on the spot. Profound thoughts from a man often seen wearing a giant diaper.
Tonight’s starters are Chris Carpenter and C.J. Wilson. Carpenter has pitched pretty well since crapping the mound against the Phillies roughly three weeks ago in Game 2 of the NLDS. As for Wilson? Well, the soon to be free agent is basically pitching for his life, but not really. If you consider the difference between making an annual salary of $14 million or $18 million a stressful state of affairs, you’re probably reading this from a private jet filled with an impressive collection of acorns.
