I'm posting this a little early so I can remind you that there's still time to enter TiqIQ and SBNation's "Pitcher Perfect" contest. Head over to that post for the details, and get your predictions in by game time to be eligible to win.
Meanwhile, C.J. Wilson (2.94 ERA, 3.24 FIP in 2011, 8.04 ERA, 7.56 FIP postseason) and the Rangers are taking on noted uptight citizen Chris Carpenter (3.45 ERA, 3.06 FIP in 2011, 3.71 ERA, 4.26 FIP postseason) and the Cardinals in Game 1 of the Fall Classic tonight.
The first pitch is at 7:05, and you can use the comments section of this thread to discuss the game or anything else you may be doing this evening. First, though, a poll:
