    Strategy of pitching around Papi backfires on Cards

    At some point between the Mike Matheny-Adam Wainwright meeting on Monday and Game 6 on Wednesday night, the St. Louis decision-makers decided that they were through tugging on Superman's cape.

    Red Sox's celebration even sweeter at Fenway Park

    Fenway Park hadn't seen a World Series celebration for the home team since 1918. The Red Sox won it on the road in 2004 and '07, accepting the Commissioner's Trophy in front of subdued and disappointed opposing fans.
