If you don’t have a few hundred extra dollars to spare, the chances of you being able to witness the 2013 World Series live are pretty small.

For the price of a spring training game in March, this lucky guy is going to see the two best teams in baseball write another chapter of World Series history. This has to be one of the greatest ticket deals in the history of sporting events. As the marquee event of professional baseball, the Fall Classic is always a hot ticket, but in a historic baseball city such as Boston, getting tickets is often a near-impossible task. As of Monday at 9:00 p.m. ET, StubHub has a total of 2,955 tickets remaining for Game 1. The cheapest tickets available are for home plate standing room onl...

A starter who still seeks to find some way to contribute to the Cardinals’ postseason run rookie Shelby Miller captured the odd contradiction of his current role standing outside of the team’s dugout before Game 6 of the National League championship series.
“Hopefully” Miller said “they don’t have to use me.”
He got the wish he didn’t want.

Barring any last-minute hiccups, Allen Craig should make his return to the Cardinals lineup Wednesday night at Fenway Park. And it couldn’t have come at a better time for St. Louis.
The National League champs have been an excellent offensive team this year, leading the NL in runs scored during the regular season and coming alive late to overwhelm the Dodgers’ elite arms in the...
The Boston Red Sox have reached a Minor League deal with Cuban right-handed pitcher Dalier Hinojosa worth $4.25 million. Multiple reports last week reported the deal at $4 million. The 27 year old pitcher will most likely receive in invite to the Red Sox camp during Spring Training.
As reported by Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com, Hinojosa starred for the Guantanamo Indios in the Serie...

While a source suggested there are some physical issues Buchholz is dealing with there is presently nothing that the Red Sox anticipate will force an alteration to...

The teams are not required to submit their lineups until Wednesday morning at 9AM CT, but Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com writes that all signs point towards Craig’s name being on that roster...
ST. LOUIS -- Seven-plus months since Opening Day, baseball is down to two teams. For once, it's not only the two hottest teams that will meet in the World Series, but the two best.
The Cardinals and the Red Sox both won 97 games and finished with the best record in their respective leagues.
The Red Sox led the AL in scoring; the Cardinals led the NL. (Neither offense...
David Freese launched a high drive to deep left-center field, watching the whole way until the ball loudly thwacked off the Green Monster.

Thirty-eight years ago today, one of the greatest moments on Red Sox history happened. It was Game 6 of the 1975 World Series against the Reds. It was in the 12th inning. Carlton Fisk came up to the plate and sent a ball flying toward the foul pole. Fisk started waving the ball fair, it hit the pole and the Red Sox forced a Game 7.
The Red Sox would lose Game 7, but that does...
Curt Schilling thought his Boston Red Sox would sweep the ''bloody sock'' World Series of 2004.
He was right.
Now the big right-hander's former team is playing the St. Louis Cardinals for the championship again, and he expects a much tighter competition.
''I think it's going to go the distance,'' Schilling, an ESPN baseball analyst, said...
