Tigers in five, but remember this: the Cards have been big underdogs in every Series thus far, and have prevailed. Who knows.

The earliest they could wheel out Carpenter is on Sunday on 3 days rest and the earliest for Suppan would be on Tuesday. Which means they're not going to get a second start out of either until after the point where they're going to need them.

It might have taken too much out the Cards' staff to get to the WS to where they may not have anything left for now. Whereas Leyland can curtail his rotation any way he wants to.

Tigers in 5.

I agree - this is what I would say - and I predict Jim Edmunds is going to be MVP. He's got that Intense look in his eye again.

They have rest, the rotation can be set, and for whatever it is that he has done, they have Leyland. He is not going to let them lose.

Tigers in 5.

(edit - God I hate seeing those words I've typed. It's just SO MUCH FUN to watch every other team in the freakin' division get to/win a Series while trying to remain optimistic about the Tribe. Grrrr...)

Tigers in 4, maybe 5.

Detroit is the team of destiny this year. Their pitching is better and their hitting is better. They are well rested and can change theor pitching rotation at will.

Although I am a Mets fan, if the Mets would have won, I would have taken the Tigers in 5 too.

Cardinals in 7.

Weaver and Suppan are rolling, Carpenter is due a dominating performance with support and Albert Pujols is still the best player in the series. The DH really helps the Cardinals in that Chris Duncan can bat while So Taguchi plays left. Duncan is an under the radar guy who swung the bat well this year, but unfortunately for him is a Cardinals first baseman who must try to play defense in the outfield.

Albert may be the best on paper, but in the post season, he is not so hot. The best player, stat wise is Molina, which doesnt bode well. He's hot and cold at best.

As much as I dont care, I would like the Cards to win it, just to shut the city up.

But, detroit in 6 is my pick.

Pujols is still batting .324. Yes, his power numbers are off and he only has 4 RBI. Maybe the hammy will improve.

Weaver and Suppan have been really good but if the Cards couldn't hit Maine and Oliver Perez I don't see how they'll have much luck against Robertson, Verlander, Rogers, Bonderman, Zumaya, Rodney, and Jones.

Pujols has hit well or drawn walks but the problem is the batters before and after him went 7 for 53 in the NLCS. That's a .132 average, Pujols isn't going to do much damage with that support.

Not a lot of postseason experience on the Tigers.

This could go seven games. If Lolich can come thru like he did in '68, and Mayo Smith spots Eddie Mathews at both third and first correctly, I like the Tigers again. They still have a big hole at shortstop, and I don't know that Mickey Stanley is the answer.

I had Tigers in 4 before the playoffs, so I'll stick with that. Better starting pitching, better bullpen, better line-up, better manager, and the American League has been the more dominant league. Win streak for the AL reaches 12 games in a row after this series.

Detroit in five, but I couldn't care less about this series.

Gotta go with Detoit in 5, Cardinals are struggling for runs against Maine and Perez? What are they going to do against GOOD pitching?

I like how everyone is saying the Cards can't win because they couldn't his Maine and Perez, and not mentioning that if the Mets couldn't hit the Cards pitching how the hell are the Tigers going to?

Well let's see here. Detroit's offense? 8th in the Majors. St. Louis's offense? 14th in the Majors. And that's mostly because of Pujols who hasn't done much damage so far. The Tigers have played two pitching staffs that were better than the Cardinals this year and scored more runs on them than the Cardinals have scored even though the Cardinals have played more games. The Tigers offense is much better and the Tigers pitching staff is much better that's why the Tigers can hit off the Cardinals better than the Cardinals can hit off the Tigers.

I tend to agree that Detroit should be favourites, but it depends whether the week off is a good or bad thing for them. If they were playing well, like they were to beat the Yanks, I'm sure they would have rather gone straight into the next series. The big wait could mean guys timing goes out just a bit and guys like Monroe can be very streaky. I think they win, possibly in 5, but not without a scare or two.
