Fall Classic

Tonight starts the 2013 World Series between the Cardinals and Red Sox.  So...who are we picking?  We have ties to both teams.  When Autographs 4 Alopecia kicked off in 2011 we received a package from Dave at Roger Dean Stadium, spring training home of the St Louis Cardinals.  It had some autographed cards of Adam Wainwright, Jason Motte, and Daniel Descalso who are in the World Series this year.  Another connection to the Cardinals is Jamie Pogue.  Jamie played in the Atlantic League for the Long Island Ducks, Bridgeport Bluefish, and for Barnstormers Manager Butch Hobson in Nashua.  He is now the bullpen catcher for the Cardinals.  We have several cards signed of Jamie from before Autographs 4 Alopecia started.

Later in the summer of 2011, we got a package from Mike Napoli that had one of his catchers masks autographed and some cards.  When he was with the Rangers we said his heart was as big as he's just Boston Strong! After this season with the Red Sox he is due for another big contract!  ...and we love his beard!

Here is a link to the Mike Napoli post...

So, we like both teams and are happy for them, but here are our picks...

Blake... Red Sox in 5
Gavin... Red Sox in 5
Kyle...Cardinals in 7
Mom...Red Sox in 6
Dad...Red Sox in 7

So, who is your pick?
