World Series Preview and Prediction: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Boston Red Sox

Tradition-laden teams do battle in classic matchup
The St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox, owners of the two best records in baseball, prepare to stage a classic showdown in the World Series.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Boston Red Sox
This is the first time the two teams with their league’s best records have met in the Fall Classic since the Yankees defeated the Braves in 1999. Both the Red Sox and Cardinals won 97 games. These two teams have proven to be among the best in baseball all season, and this series has all the signs of a long, competitive, down-to-the-wire World Series.

Ranking the St. Louis Cardinals 40-Man Roster

A look at the best (and worst) players on the team
While life can be rather boring without 15 baseball games every night, over the next few weeks Athlon Sports Baseball Editor Charlie Miller will rank players on every 40-man roster.

Between the end of the World Series and Opening Day every winter, fans are inundated with lists. Rankings of the best shortstop, the best left-handed relievers, the best leadoff men, the best second basemen in runs saved, the best right-handed pinch-hitter in road games in July and more. So, while life can be rather boring without 15 baseball games every night, over the next few weeks I’ll rank players on every 40-man roster.
