The Series opens up tonight. The questions to be answered in Game One are:
Will the Rockies be rusty from the layoff? Or will they take up right where they left off? Will the Sox stay solid after three straight wins? Will they be loose and play like they have the last two games? Or will they fold up?
I have rooted for Boston before, I remember the days of Yaz and how he held that bat way up. It looked so awkward, so unlikely that this guy could hit anything. But hit, he did. In the 67 Series, it wasn't enough to overcome the pitching of the Cards.
This year, neither team is really my team. I like my beloved Angels, who won a few years back, but were eliminated by the Red Sox this year. But, if I had to pick a team to win it, I'd have to say that I want the Rockies because they have never won it. Going out on a limb, I would add to this, I am predicting them to win it because they have looked so damned impressive.
The Bosox have one certified fan (Greg). We all know that. And it may be that we have more. Are there any Rockie fans out there? How about baseball fans in general?
What do you think? (If enough of you want to hash this out in the usual PYY courteous fashion, I'll keep a fresh thread going throughout the Series.)
