 2004 World Series Wrapup
Perhaps the drain of the American League Championship Series and the National League Championship Series which were wildly competitive for the most part, exhausted the Fat Lady as she had a bit of laryngitis.
Certainly, the World Champion Red Sox deserve all of the accolades they are now receiving, and probably more so because of their 86 year drought between World Series Championships.
And both the 1989 and 1990 World Series were not well remembered primarily due to their lack of competition.

Yes, but the normal is three crew chiefs assigned to the world series each year.

Actually, Randy Marsh was the crew chief for last year's World Series Umpiring Crew between the Yankees and the Marlins.

 2004 World Series
The Cardinals have reached the 7th Game 10 times including the that last 7 World Series they played in, while the Red Sox have gone to a 7th game in the last 4 World Series they were in which they all lost, including twice to the Cardinals in 1946 and 1967.
However after they beat the Yankees the whole dynamic has changed these are not the same Sox that have choked in October's past and thus will end the curse on Halloween and win their first Championship in 86years.
Look for big series from Scott Rolen and Albert Pujols on the Cardinals as most games will be slugfest while Johnny Damon and World Series MVP David Ortiz will provide the punch for the Red Sox.

The World Series DVD is more than 80 minutes of pure, inside baseball action.
This year, not that Cardinals fans are going to want to be remembering this series much, they just jettisoned much of what went on in the NL to focus almost exclusively on the journey of the winners.
The '2004 World Series' shares a lot of footage with the NESN-produced DVD 'Faith Rewarded' (which also has its strengths and flaws), and overall the narrative script of this DVD, while focussing much on the less than dramatic World Series, was of much higher quality than the NESN video.

Louis Cardinals defeated the Boston Red Sox in 6 games to win their first World Series since 1982.
The ALCS apparently took a heavy toll on the Red Sox as their overworked pitching staff ran into serious trouble early in 4 of the 6 games.
Although Curt Schilling and Tim Wakefield deserve much of the credit for getting the Red Sox into the World Series for the first time since 1986, their poor pitching performances ultimately led to the Red Sox downfall in the World Series.
