The Red Sox and Cardinals will face off in the 2013 World Series starting on Wednesday, October 23. Both the Sox and Cards eliminated their opponents -- the Tigers and Dodgers, respectively -- in six games, giving each of them more than the two days rest allotted by the playoff schedule to sort out their rotations and plot the final stage of their championship runs.
All seven potential World Series games will air on FOX, with the broadcast team Red Sox fans already heard against the Tigers running the show: It'll be Joe Buck and Tim McCarver in the booth, with Ken Rosenthal and Erin Andrews once again acting as on-field reporters. If that's not your thing, ESPN Radio will also be broadcasting the World Series, with Dan Shulman and Orel Hershiser running that show.

Game 2: Oct. 24, airtime 7:30 p.m., game 8:07 in Boston
Game 3: Oct. 26, airtime 7:30 p.m., game 8:07 in St. Louis

Adam Wainwright is slated to pitch Game 1 for the Cardinals. The Red Sox have not announced their starter, but it would be safe to guess that, like in the ALDS and ALCS, Jon Lester will be taking the mound.
