I would say you're crazy!! Rockies might win but not in 4, especially since they haven't played in over a week.

Feel sorry for you east coast fans, starting games at 8:37pm is just stupid..

About that, baseball needs to get rid of the second off-day in between the CS and the World Series. Want the extra day to have some more flexibility in your rotation? Don't go seven games.

By the way, I may hate the Sox, but their fan website (www.bostondirtdogs.com) has some seriously funny stuff on it from time to time:

Rox
Sox
Rox on Fox
Sox on Fox
Rox vs. Sox on Fox
Sox vs. Rox on Fox
Sox vs. Rox in Coors Bandbox

Sox have Jocks
Rox have Jocks
Jocks in Field or Batter's Box
Jocks with Money Box of Stocks
Papi strong as Wild Ox

Fox ex-Jocks sit in Press Box
Listen to Tim McCarver's Vox!
The insanity he Talks and Squawks
Joe Buck oughtta clean his Clocks

Rox beat Sox
Sox beat Rox

No one claims the games are Locks
And on some wood a Nation Knocks
But if the Rox Outfox the Sox
Or Gagne Walks or Beckett Balks
It surely would cause Mocks and Shocks
Requiring Whiskey on the Rocks

... and then, as Manny says, there will always be next year ... -- Mark Stebbins, 10.24.07

You know, you all can hate the Red Sox for whatever reason you want (I know not all of you do, but there is a certain vocalness about a distastefulness for them and the whole stupid Jim Rome "Chowd Nation" concept, something I think is relegated to semi-retarded individuals who wish they could fuck their sister (again)).

Since 1970, we've had plenty of shitty teams and several good ones. Go to hell and go golfing. I've earned your hatred.

Oh, and it's currently 13-1 in the 5th. So I'd say that the OP's predictions are already off.

Yeah, well, I was at a bar and every time I looked up at the screen the Red Sox had scored another run (no-one was even cheering anymore). I guess that's what having the bases loaded does for you.
