ST. LOUIS -- We can sum up the plotline of the National League Championship Series for you in six words:

It's Cy Young versus really young.

On one hand, those Los Angeles Dodgers will roll into the NLCS all set to start Cy Young winners in Games 1 and 2 on Friday and Saturday. Introducing Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, ladies and gentlemen. Perhaps you're familiar with their work.

But the team they're facing, those St. Louis Cardinals, will take a slightly different approach -- by starting two pitchers who have yet to spend a full year in a big league rotation in Games 1 and 2. That would be Joe Kelly, who is about to make the 33rd start of his big league career (counting the postseason), and Michael Wacha, who is about to make the 11th.

So ... isn't that interesting?
