Jon LesterThis back-and-forth World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals will get a redux of the game that started it off when Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright oppose each other in the pivotal Game 5 on Monday night.

Lester’s Game 1 start generated some controversy after there was a suspected foreign substance on his glove.

It will be interesting to see if anyone in the St. Louis dugout is paying close attention to the way Lester’s cutter is moving, because that was a difference-making pitch in the series opener.

Moving to the home side of things, Adam Wainwright had one of those rare games where he looked human in the loss.

This group will have a much different look, with David Ortiz sliding into the first base slot and Mike Napoli being relegated to the bench.
