St. Louis' slump, and some final musings on Mike Matheny.

The story of the Cardinals’ loss, both in Game Six and in the World Series as a whole, is simple: they didn’t hit, recording only a collective .224/.273/.299 line. And when you come right down to it, that’s not a very interesting story.

What history says about the likelihood of a Cardinals comeback.

After Monday night’s 3-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals head back to Boston tonight to try to win two consecutive road games to clinch the 2013 World Series. Given how evenly matched the teams’ talent levels are, their one-game deficit and home field disadvantage qualify the Cardinals as underdogs.

How the Red Sox sent the series back to Boston with a one-win lead.

This series has been compelling from the start, but it took until Game Five for it to look like a contest between two of the best teams in baseball. Game Five was the first without an error. It was mercifully free of egregiously bad baserunning, and it didn’t end with a debatable call. With the memory of Dana DeMuth's floating strike zone still fresh, it felt well-officiated behind home plate, aside from this third-inning strike three to Matt Carpenter.

The decisions by both skippers that led to the walkoff obstruction.

Wherever you stand on the obstruction call, you probably wish this game had been decided by a less ambiguous, controversial play. So it’s worth asking how we got to the point where this game could come down to where Will Middlebrooks fell. And the answer, in part (and as always), is “managerial moves.” Here, in reverse chronological order, are five moves that John Farrell or Mike Matheny made (or didn’t make) that helped set up Game Three for an infamous ending.

What the Koz saw: And other adventures.

We keep waiting for Jacoby Ellsbury and Yadier Molina to have a showdown on the basepaths, but while we wait Pete Kozma and Craig Breslow snuck in to produce the most unexpected cat-and-mouse moment of the series.
