WS matchup thoughts

Is there anyone (outside of Greater Phoenix) not rooting for the Rockies? Doesn't having the D-Backs (outscored by 20, which is way worse than the 2006 Cards) in the World Series just sound horrible?

And while I know it's cool to root for the Indians (I honestly really like that team), doesn't an Indians-Diamondbacks World Series sound unbelievably lame?

Of course, if it's Cleveland-Rockies, we'll get everyone screaming "Cleveland-Rox!". And Drew Carey will be the spokesman. And we can't have that. I'm getting ill just thinking about it.

So really, the only acceptable outcome is Red Sox-Rockies. Which, in spite of my biases/preferences, would be my pick based on the matchups (though it might take them all 7 games to get there). Yes, we'll have to put up with "SOX-ROX on FOX", but it's still the best-case scenario.


  1. This is a classic. You have to wait until about 3 minutes in. But a classic up there with here ROGER CLEMENS is coming back of all the dramatic things....


  2. What about "Red Rocks"??? As in "U2 Live Under a Blood Red Sky" recorded at Red Rocks...no, Sox Rox on Fox is better.

    And, to continue our discussion from the ALCS thread, Kielty is getting the Game 1 start in RF because he is hitting .310 against Sabathia. So, it isn't Hinske starting, but what is the difference?

    Also, it looks like Finland is getting to you, Earl.

  4. The Rockies scare me. I went to the see them when they were in town and there are not a lot of holes in their lineup.

    I am cheering for a close series because god knows we're going down to the wire in ours.
