Cardinals win the NL

Posted at 10:21 AM on October 20, 2006 by Ben Tesch

The Cardinals ride series MVP Jeff Suppan into the World Series with a win over the Mets. My jaw dropped twice in that game: once on the homerun-robbing snowcone catch by Endy Chavez in the 6th to keep the game tied, and then later on the 9th inning curveball by Wainwright that struck out Cliff Floyd looking. Turned out my prediction of who I was rooting for and who won were both correct. Now the World Series starts Saturday in Detroit. Any predictions? (Mine: Tigers in 5.)

Gardenhire gets 2-year contract extension

Posted at 10:39 AM on October 20, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Unlike Ken Macha, Dusty Baker, Frank Robinson, Buck Showalter, Joe Girardi, et al, Ron Gardenhire is staying put, signing a two-year contract extension which would be through the 2009 season. The Twins also signed pitching coach Rick Anderson, bench coach Steve Liddle, bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek, third base coach Scott Ullger, hitting coach Joe Vavra and first base coach Jerry White to contracts which will run through the 2008 season. (I wonder what happens in that offset year?)
