I believe Sale & Quintana are scheduled to start. Anybody going?

 

Yep, I will be at both games probably when the gates open

Going to both also. Probably not that early. We will meet up in Soulard for a few drinks and take a shuttle. They are giving away a replica 1982 World Series trophy on Tuesday.

 

I've read that visiting teams' BP starts about 90 minutes before game time.

I would've gone down there with family but I got my buddy's dumb wedding.

Since this team is pretty much out of it, I don't mind the Sox losing these games. No reason to want to help the Cubs out in any way.

Took the days off months ago. I think I'm gonna end up passing though. Just doesn't sound fun to me anymore.

Yeah on Tuesdays there will be lines that last probably 20-30 min to get in to the park because of the giveaway. By the time you get in BP might be done unless you get in line early. Wednesday will be a lot easier to get in and catch BP and get some autographs from the guys

Enjoy being surrounded by the best fans in baseball. If you don't believe me, just ask then, they will be sure to tell you

I used to go to St. Louis quite often for coaching clinics. The Penthouse is a must if a "Gentleman's Club" is your thing. Just saying.

Last month I witnessed them start the wave in the 8th inning when the Cubs had the tying run come to the plate. Can only imagine how this series will go.

 

But yes Ballpark Village is a great time but f*** the Cards and their fans.

You think Sox tickets are expensive what did you expect? lol

 

Anyone going should head up early and hang around in Ballpark Village. Really cool area for Cards fans.

 

I have gone to a lot of Cardinals games with family and friends before. I usually can get bleacher seats from $8-15 dollars a piece off stubhub. They are giving away a replica 1982 World Series Statue on Tuesday and has driven the prices up quite a bit for a Tuesday night.

I hate the damn wave and hate the whole "baseball heaven" "best fans in baseball" s***.

 

I hope Sale goes in there and strikes out 14 while allowing 3 hits or less

The White Sox probably will split this series... but..

 

Pretty good case of How it's done and How it's not done in the business of MLB in just about ever facet of the game.

 

The Cardinals seem like they could pitch Steve Stone out of the booth and win.

 

They just have it figured out top to bottom in their organization.

I am going on Wednesday night. This will be my first visit to the new Busch Stadium. But I did attend a game at the previous Busch stadium in the early 90's before the playing surface was changed from astroturf to natural grass.

 

I know that the Cardinals are very popular and have a huge local following in their area. Does anyone think that cheap, walk-up tickets will be available at the stadium box office? I plan on getting to the Busch Stadium around 5PM, and I am concerned that the game could sell-out.

I used to go on Sox road trips all the time. Cincy, KC, Pittsburgh, etc. It just isn't fun for me anymore. Working in hotels, I can get those with a discount or sometimes complimentary but gas is expensive and most teams' tickets are pricey. If I'm going to get 3-4 days off of work and spend $400+ I'd rather go somewhere nice and relax. Plus, aside from Sale and Abreu, they really have nobody exciting to play, and when you plan these, you have no idea if you'll even see Sale pitch.

 

If I started going on them again, I probably would pick Seattle, Anaheim, or Boston & would never go to St Louis. I've been twice, and the city is a dump. Fried ravioli is garbage and the Arch isn't even a monument. The Mississippi River is brown and the people wear jorts. /endrant

Which is why I want to go just one time, to say that I have visited that stadium once in my life.

 

Plus, I now have a gasoline powered car (not a hybrid or electric) that gets over 50 mpg on Interstate highways, so that helps with the cost.

I haven't tried it but I don't think they would be cheap. It won't be any cheaper then what is on stub hub or seatgeek right now

Should be a fun series. What happens when an (on paper) great team (Cards) plays an (on paper) horrific team (White Sox)? Is it like the Houston series where we somehow win? Or is it like a normal series where we play just well enough to lose on some nights and get blown out others with the only common denominator the loss?
