Click below to hear my final thoughts on Game Two of the World Series, a 4-2 win for the St. Louis Cardinals that snapped a nine-game winning streak in Series play by the Boston Red Sox. The last Series loss for Boston? Game Seven in 1986 against the Mets in old Shea Stadium.

This one was about Boston's sloppy defense in the seventh and St. Louis' electric trio of pitchers. As we head to the Midwest, the Sox will be without David Ortiz or Mike Napoli in each game. Look for Ortiz at first base and Napoli on the bench in Game Three. A big disadvantage.
