The 2013 World Series Possibles: And Then There Were Four ...

We're down to four teams, each one of the original 16, three still playing in their original cities.

2013 World Series possibles: And then there were four

For the Series itself, we'll either get ...

  • Cardinals vs. Tigers: a rematch of 1934, 1968 and 2006.
  • Cardinals vs. Red Sox: a rematch of 1946, 1967 and 2004.
  • Dodgers vs. Red Sox: a rematch of 1916, when LA was in Brooklyn and Brooklyn was called the Robins.
  • Dodgers vs. Tigers: WS newbies.

Interesting tidbit from the Cardinals: against both possible A.L. opponents, they had memorable series in '34, '46, '67 and '68, all of which went 7 games. Then in the 2000s, blpppthh, four and out each time. At least they turned that around in 2011 against Texas.

BTW: if either the Cards or Red Sox win it all, they will be, in terms of titles, the winningest team of the 21st century. Suck on it, Yankees.
