Pulling for STL. Like how they built their team. Didn't realiZe it until game 6 ended that only 5 players were brought into the system to supplement their farm products.

 

Still incredible turnaround for Boston. Their 2012 core lost in the NLCS, but the rebuilt parts won't the 13 ALCS.

 

Give us hope as marlins fans a bit if the Marlins spend wisely this time.

Want the Red Sox to win in 4, they'll probably lose in 6.

Also its actually 8 players they didn't develop on their own, but its still impressive to see. More impressive is the fact most of their pitchers are soooo young and under team control for the next five years, this could be a regular event for the Cardinals in October!

They drafted 17 players however they count 3 others that were developed in their system even though they were obtained in other ways

Ten years of no playoffs. Cardinals/sox 7th World Series together in ten years. Getting tired of this. Loria spend money.

 

Spending money did wonders for the Dodgers. They are sitting home for the WS too. It's not all about money.

Well, let's keep in mind that a lot of things can happen in a 7 game series. The Dodgers might not have made it to the World Series but their high payroll got them really damn far. Same can be said of Detroit. Winning the ALCS/NLCS is a crapshoot to some degree and cannot really be considered an appropriate measure as to whether or not "it's all about money."

 

The Cardinals might have had a roster of a bunch of home-grown players, but their payroll was still 11th highest in baseball.

 

The Red Sox also have the 4th highest payroll in MLB.

 

All of the low payroll teams (Pittsburgh, Tampa, Atlanta, Oakland) were disposed of rather early. I'd say that the 2013 playoffs have been far more kind to the higher payroll teams. If you want to look at the teams that made it out of the division series, money does appear to be part of the answer.

 

Obviously spending a ton of money isn't always the answer (look at the 2012 Marlins), but it certainly does make things easier.

Spend by locking up our best and spend more on player development.

 

I want people who fit the mold of a Allen Craig, skip Schumacher, James loney. Those guys. No big stars but 100% give it all, get on base guys.
