A little more than 24 hours away from their biggest game of the season, the St. Louis Cardinals are stuck over 1,000 miles away from Fenway Park.

According to Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin, the Cards' plane is currently having "mechanical difficulties":

Matheny: #Cardinals have been on plane "for a couple hours" because of mechanical difficulties, backup plane en route if needed.

After a seven hour wait, the Cardinals finally are on their way to Boston. The team finally landed in Boston nine hours after their original departure.
