Time Extended

St. Louis has a reputation for being one of the most haunted cities in the country. I wonder if the ghosts of Busch Stadium are weighing in on this year's post season?

If it weren't for the Cardinals making it to the post season, the wrecking ball would already be knocking down Busch.

And now, having the season extended for at least one more series, Busch will play host for another week of baseball.

If we win the League Championship Series against Houston, then Busch Stadium will host the World Series, and baseball will be played in old Busch until the end of October.

Leaving one to wonder if we end up winning the World Series this year, are we setting up the "Busch Stadium Curse"?

Busch Stadium ends its run in glory, giving St. Louis a World Series Championship, only to curse future generations of St. Louisans with a hundred-year drought on future world titles for tearing her down after a championship season...

That wouldn't happen, could it?

Maybe if they'd built the new ballpark outside of the city, then maybe it would have...

During pre-game warmups, Astros starting pitcher Andy Pettit was injured by a line drive off the bat of one of his own teammates.

After the Astros lost to the Cardinals, Pettit said he didn't feel right the whole night.
