- It looks like the Cardinals have the Mets right where they want them. They are up 3-2 in the series and have their best pitcher, Chris Carpenter, going tonight against New York's rookie John Maine. If Carpenter can't win, Jeff Suppan, who dominated the Mets in his last start goes against the immortal Darren Oliver, who didn't start a game in the regular season. The only things going for the Mets is that they are at home, and of course the Dos Carlos still play for the team, but based on the pitching matchups it's an uphill climb.

- What the heck are the Tigers doing? They clinched the AL pennant on Saturday against the A's, and the World Series doesn't start until this Saturday night. The good news for the Tigers is that, according to today's Boston Globe, all five teams that opened the World Series with a break of five days or more ended up winning. Those teams include the '95 Braves, the '96 Yankees, the '01 Diamondbacks, the '02 Angels and the '05 White Sox.

- Disney announced the other day that they were going to offer healthier meals at the theme parks and not sign licensing and marketing agreements with companies that didn't offer healthy food items. It'll be interesting to see how this goes. We'll be spending some time at Disney World in December, so we'll be able to see if there are any differences in the meal offerings.
