(KSDK Sport) -- Interestingly, if you ask the casual Boston Red Sox fan about the 2004 World Series, you might get told that they don't remember the actual series, but they'll never forget the epic win over the New York Yankees to get there.

So while the 2004 World Series loss and now 2013 matchup may spell sweet revenge in the minds of Cardinal Nation, it could be argued that in Beantown, few even know it's a rematch at all.

Nonetheless, the lessons learned by the Cardinals is that in October, bats can go cold. That is why the Cards brass is busy prepping the line up about what to expect from Fenway Park and its famed Green Monster.

The last time the Cardinals played Fenway was back in 2008, and they were successful, taking two of three games played.
