Fox needs a geography lesson

I can't believe I just heard Joe Buck and Tim McCarver say that the last time the Giants won the World Series there were no teams in the majors located west of the Mississippi.

Not only is that one crack fact checking crew Fox has, but I can't believe a guy who played with the Cardinals for the majority of his career and another who grew up in St. Louis didn't know the Redbirds play west of the Mississippi.

Not only was a team located west of the Mississippi, but one of my favorite trivia question is: When was the first World Series that was held entirely west of the Mississippi River?

A: St. Louis Cardinals vs. St. Louis Browns, 1944.

Most people forget about the Brownies, and when they think about games west of the Mississippi, they usually think of the Giants and Dodgers moving from New York to California in 1958.
