After a whole two days without baseball, the World Series is upon us. Whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers ultimately win, it would be nice if we had a long series for once. Only one of the last seven World Series have gone as many as six games:

The aces for both teams — Chris Carpenter for St. Louis and C.J. Wilson for Texas — will start tonight. Before that, the Cardinals will have the three pitchers who were on the mound to record the final out of their last four World Series championships — Bob Gibson (1964, 1967), Bruce Sutter (1982), and Adam Wainwright (2006) — throw out the ceremonial first pitches at Busch Stadium.
