MLB Game Picks - Thursday: October 24, 2013

Yesterday's pick of the Cardinals could not have been more wrong. The Cardinals played a horrible game and the one thing they did really right cost them their post season hero (at least for the rest of the game). The Cardinals could not field, they could not hit Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright was uncharacteristically high in the strike zone. Put it all together and it was a...

The Wachas lived in Iowa City...

Cardinals fumble away Game 1, and there's no reversing that

Carlos Beltran doesn't have any broken ribs and he might even be able to play Thursday night. Allan Craig didn't swing the bat like someone who hadn't played in 49 days.
