The Gagne vs. Francis World Series
Or, as it will probably be better known as, Red Sox in 4.
And I hate to write that, because I really enjoyed watching every Rockies game from the tie-breaker on. & I picked Cleveland to go over Boston (damn you Skinner!).
The fact of the matter is, Josh is amazing and Schilling is looking almost like Schilling. Throw in 5 so-so innings from Dice-K and Lester, and bridge them to the best closer in baseball with Okajima, Timlin and Delcarmen, and you have a pretty tough staff to beat. And with no Wakefield, well, you have no Wakefield...and that can be a good thing...
& then throw in Jacoby & Pedroia, who really turned this team around, and Manny and Papi and Lowell and the greek god of walks Kevin Youkilis, and you almost have enough to off-set Eric Gagne, Julio Lugo, Royce Clayton and Eric Hinske.
I hate to say it, but Sox in 4. May Todd Helton have mercy on our souls.
