Are the Cardinals seeing a mirror image of themselves in their World Series opponent, the Red Sox?

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny certainly thinks so.

"They take a lot of pride in grinding out at-bats," Matheny said of the Red Sox on World Series media day on Tuesday. "You hear some of the things they say [in interviews], a lot of similar things you hear in our clubhouse."

Game 1 is Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

"You have two very similar teams in my opinion," Matheny said. "It's just a matter of who goes out and jumps on the opportunity.?
