After a 162-game regular season and some thrilling postseason action, the World Series is finally upon us. This year, the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox have the honor of battling for Major League Baseball's crown. But who will win it all?

St. Louis certainly has the edge in its starting rotation, relying on both veteran and young talent to carry them to the fall classic. St. Louis leads all teams in postseason ERA, thanks, in large part, to Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright, both of whom have ERAs under 2.00.

Boston carries the advantage in its lineup and bullpen. The Sox are leading all teams in runs scored in the playoffs, and closer Koji Uehara has only allowed one run in nine innings of work this postseason, racking up five saves in the process.

Will the Cardinals' starting pitching be king or will Boston's lineup and bullpen cash in the franchise's third title in a decade?
