Playoff Prospectus: World Series Preview: Cardinals vs. Red Sox

23

R.J. Anderson

The Red Sox snapped their curse by sweeping the Cardinals in 2004. Can St. Louis exact revenge?

The Cardinals and Red Sox each won their Championship Series in six games, denying us a few days of rust-or-rest narrative. Luckily, the easy copy surrounding this pseudo-rematch of the 2004 World Series is plentiful. Ignore that the teams have changed general managers, managers, and players―with the exceptions of David Ortiz and Yadier Molina―there will be revenge talk should the Cardinals win some nine years after being swept. No matter your rooting interest, let's just hope for a more competitive send-off than we got back then.

A look back at a World Series victory by a Cardinals team that was far inferior to 2013's.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Joe Sheehan recapped the 2006 World Series in the piece reprinted below, which was originally published as a "Prospectus Today" column on October 28, 2006.

Skewed Left: The Canadian World Series Drought

5

Zachary Levine

Canadian players have had a hard time finding their way to the Fall classic.

Look down the resume of what Canadians have accomplished in Major League Baseball, and you’ll quickly find that America’s pastime would be a lesser place without the influence of its northern neighbor.

Canada has brought us a Hall of Famer in Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham, Ontario and maybe another eventual Hall of Famer in British Columbian Larry Walker. Don’t just look at history, though. Its present-day exports include the National League’s best hitter, Toronto native Joey Votto, an accomplished pair of Pirates pickups in Justin Morneau and Russell Martin, and a promising piece of the game’s future in Mariners rookie James Paxton.

Ben, Sam, and guest Zachary Levine mull over four questions about Miguel Cabrera, then talk about the World Series odds of the Tigers and other teams.

Chronicling the decline and fall of the subdued on-field celebration.

A few weeks ago, the Astros played an intrasquad game against a pitching machine. The winner got banana splits. One team won*, and when those players won they did this:

Teams that win the World Series tend to bring back most of their players, and the Giants are no exception.

It’s been a quiet winter in Lake Wilsonbegone, my hometown. The local nine had a nice parade down Market Street, and the smell of the city made everybody act a bit peculiar that night. A few weeks later Frank Romo’s boy was on his way home to see his sweetheart when he got fired up by the protest spirit and ended up serving a few minutes of hard time in the custody of the Las Vegas Police Department. Skinny Timmy won a GIF contest, and the old-timers at the Chatterbox Cafe had a fun time guessing what a GIF contest is.

There’s not much other action for GM Brian Sabean these days. His Giants won the World Series last year, and when you win the World Series your honey-do list gets pretty simple.

The fantasy hour or two goes three hours as Jason and Paul dive deep into the hot stove as well as the third base position for 2013.

3 hours and 19 minutes of show -- about long enough to walk through the lobby of the Winter Meetings hotel. We cover the latest signings, trades, every third baseman on the market, and re-kindle the fantasy coverage at BP for the 2013 draft season.

Betting on baseball is a bad idea, but some bets are slightly better than others.

A list of people who should never bet on baseball in descending order of importance that they never bet on baseball:

1. Allan H. (Bud) Selig
2. Professional baseball players
3. People who work in college athletic departments (This is actually true, they can't bet on any level of a sport in which the NCAA has a championship, so they can bet boxing but not the World Series or even fantasy football)
4. People who don't have any money
5. Baseball writers who make terrible predictions every year
6. You

Bizball: Inside the 2012 Postseason Shares

Maury Brown

A look at the monetary incentive players have to perform well in the postseason.

Incentive. At the workplace, it comes in many forms. For some, it’s merely being able to keep your job. In other cases, one can receive a pay bonus. So whether for Clark Griswold in Christmas Vacation or players in Major League Baseball, bonuses can be used as a carrot for performance.

For players in Major League Baseball, bonuses come in a host of different shapes and sizes. From signing to performance to awards, a player’s contract can have bonuses as a key element. One that often gets overlooked, however, centers on the postseason in the form of “shares.”

Jason Bay could have easily accepted the Red Sox' offer back in 2009. What would have happened if he had?

Real life:
"Left fielder Jason Bay officially will test the open waters of free agency after declining the Boston Red Sox's initial contract offer, according to an SI.com report. The offer from the Red Sox to Bay was believed to be in the range of four years and $60 million, unidentified sources told SI.com."
