CASHING IN: THESTREET.com's Antonio Alfonso noted the bigger sponsors of the Red Sox and Cardinals "will expect a home run of their own during the series." Alfonso decided to "screen World Series sponsors with parameters like cross-sponsorship between both pennant winners, strong earnings per share (EPS) growth for next year, and high performance this past year." Bank of America is a sponsor of both teams, which means "billboards and commercials will surely include their brand during the World Series this year."
