09:16 AM ET 10.26 | How hard do Trevor Rosenthal, Carlos Martinez and all the Cardinals' young smokeballers throw a baseball? Here's how their catcher answered that question Friday afternoon: "Want to see my glove?" Yadier Molina asked a few visitors to his locker, after his team's brief off-day workout before Game 3 of the World Series. He laughed and reached into his locker. He dug out his mitt. He held it up for his guests to see. At the top of the pocket, where his palm would be when holding it, the leather was so worn, it was torn. Ripped. Split. "Does that tell you?" he asked. Point made. Eloquently.

I heard that Rosenthal's pitches averaged over 97 MPH in the 9th inning and his final pitch of the night was clocked at 99 MPH.

That's some serious gas.

Eleven pitches to strike out the side. I felt sorry for the Boston hitters. Not really, that second statement is a lie.

It was an impressive performance, to say the least.

The performance of these kids may just be the deciding factor in the series.

Very possible, and I hope you are 100% right about that.

I hope I'm not but it is what it is.

The young Saint Louis pitchers will be the deciding factor one way or the other.

I have to admit I hated the Cards with a passion but not anymore.

The Cards are starting to remind me of the 60's Dodgers with all of the young arms LA had in Drysdale,Koufax,Osteen, and Podres.
