World Series: Cardinals, Red Sox Set For 2013 Fall Classic

-- Big Papi, Dustin Pedroia and the bearded guys from Boston. Michael Wacha, Trevor Rosenthal and those fresh mugs from St. Louis.
Pretty neat face-off in this World Series. Cardinals-Red Sox, once again in October. Fully rested, they'll open Wednesday night at Fenway Park.
Postseason stars from past and present — Carlos Beltran, David Freese, John Lackey, David Ortiz and Adam Wainwright.
Juicy plotlines — can Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina shut down Jacoby Ellsbury and the runnin' Red Sox? Can all-world closer Koji Uehara stop Matt Holliday and the Cardinals?
Plus, plenty of history — think Stan Musial vs. Ted Williams in 1946, Bob Gibson vs. Carl Yastrzemski in '67 or Pedro Martinez vs. Albert Pujols in 2004. Or, perhaps more memorably that last time, Curt Schilling and the bloody sock vs. The Curse.
The Red Sox and Cardinals are hardly arch enemies, however. They haven't played since Kevin Youkilis homered over the Green Monster in the 13th inning on June 22, 2008.
