The Cardinals didnt even look like they belonged on the same field as the Red Sox. What a friggin joke. All I heard leading up to this series was that the Cardinals were a mirror image of the Red Sox. Well, its been a long time since the Red Sox shat the bed the way the Cardinals did last night. Mirror my ass.
This game was partly a case of the Cardinals shitting the bed and partly a case of the Red Sox clicking on all cylinders. Jon Lester was a friggin beast. In 7.2 innings, he didnt allow a run, gave up five hits, walked one and struck out eight.
Mike Napoli continued to friggin own the Cardinals. Back in the 2011 World Series, he treated them like his bitch, batting .350 with two homers and 10 RBI in the series. Last night his three run double made it 3-0 in the first inning, setting the tone for this bitch slapping.
I guess the Cardinals forgot how to play defense. From Pete Kozma not being able to turn a routine double play to Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina playing a game of "I got it," the Cardinals just looked like a bunch of friggin amateurs out there.
I understand that anything can happen in a seven game series, but I wouldnt be the least bit surprised to see the Red Sox sweep. Hell, it was 5-0 after two innings and the Cardinals didnt even look like they deserved to be on the same friggin field as the Red Sox at times.
Plus, they have a rookie pitching in Game 2 of the World Series at Fenway Park. This dude is going to shit himself, mark my words. And Carlos Beltran is now listed as day-to-day with a rib contusion after running into the bullpen wall. If this guy doesnt play, the Cardinals are really up shits creek without a paddle.
The Boston Red Sox are are now three wins from winning the World Series. After what we just witnessed last night, let that sink in for a second...and try not to get a pants tent right now.
