Well … the Saux have certainly been here before … facing a seemingly insurmountable deficit in the ALCS against a very capable opponent. Can they come back again … like they did to the Yankmees back in ’04? Or will they wilt and die as against the ChiSox in ’05? (Had to get that in there just to make myself feel good … pretty obvious I know).
What say you Saux fans? Wally says that Beckett pitches like … well … Beckett always seems to do in the playoffs and the Saux win a squeaker in Game 5. Then … things will get very interesting back in Boston as they usually do when the Saux get confident and smell blood in their home park. I think it goes 7.
Hey, we need some drama!!! We really haven’t had any since the Rockies beat the Padres in that one game playoff … which seems like a month ago.
Speaking of the Rockies … er … Rolling Stones as they’ve come to be known since being on the INCREDIBLE ROLL of winning 21 out of their last 22, what a story!!! Score one … no … score 2 points for them. One for being another low payroll team doing well, and a second point for doing it with essentially their own kids. I love that Tulowitzki kid … what a comlplete ballplayer!!! And ya gotta love the fact that steady eddy Todd Helton has a chance to win a ring. Problem is … I think the 8 day layoff will end up killing them and the AL rep will win the World Series. And that’s why I’m rooting for Cleveland … a city starved for a champ since 1948. I think the Rockies will be back and have another chance very soon.
Enjoy the games ….
