"We just wanted to give them a false sense of security."
Who? The Tigers? The media? The world?
This can be the only explanation (and the rash of injuries that plagued the Redbrids) for the sub-par regular season and dominating post-season.
THE CARDINALS ARE WORLD CHAMPS! Its a good feeling. And now for some icing.
Here is a list of media who picked the Tigers (this is not a complete list so feel free to put their names in the comment box and I'll add them on):
How do you like your crow,
Philips-Tigers in 5?
Olney-Tigers in 5?
Caple-Tigers in 5?
Crasnick-Tigers in 6?
Law-Tigers in 5?
Gammons-Tigers in 7?
Stark-Tigers in 6?
Neyer-Tigers in a sweep?
Kruk-Tigers in 6?
the name we don't speak of-Tigers in a sweep?
Mccarthy-Tigers in 5?
Rosen-Tigers in 5?
Mack-Tigers in 6?
I can't find the experts picks for Foxsports or SI. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.
But tip your cap to:
Ravech-Cards in 7.
There are some similar comments at Fungoes.
As for those who say, "It was a poor series" or "The best teams weren't in it" or "It was a boring series" or "The Tigers threw the game away" you all are probably the same ones that would like to see a 17-15 game as opposed to a perfect game. Good defense DOES NOT mean a bad game. And that is what the Cardinals had: Good Defense; i.e., good pitching. Note that the errors might have made the difference in ONLY ONE GAME. If you need me to elaborate on this, then didn't watch the games.
Here's to the Cardinals: World Champions!
