Wednesday Podcast: World Series Preview

Can you believe he misspelled "World Series"? He didn't, but I'll bet you just looked to see. - Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Alex Hall goes on the Phil Naessens Show to talk about the upcoming World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals.

Good morning, Athletics Nation! The A's may not be in the World Series, but that doesn't mean that we can't watch it, enjoy it, and talk about it. Let's all say seven Hail Billy's and thank the baseball gods that the Yankees aren't in it this year.

On today's Phil Naessens Show, we discuss the World Series match-up between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals and offer our insights and predictions. My segment leads off the show, so just press play and enjoy. Get comfy, though, because it goes for 27 minutes today:

Give it a listen and leave your feedback in the comments, including your predictions for the series!

As linked in the comments by Lev, here's an awesome Grantland article on the 1989 World Series.

What would happen if the Red Sox and Cardinals played 163 games instead of just a best-of-seven?

What sort of likable traits do the Cardinals and Red Sox have?  Grant Brisbee listed a few qualities.

David Wiers of Fangraphs wrote an article about Brandon Moss' value to fantasy teams.

We already knew Chip Hale was a candidate for the manager job in Seattle.  He is being interviewed today by Jack Zdurencik and Co.

After his star performance in a Fan Cave video, Derek Holland has earned a role in "Dumb and Dumber To."

It has nothing to do with baseball at all, but check out Ben & Jerry's upcoming promotional flavor!  "Anchorman 2" premieres on December 20.
