Sox and Rox
Alright, I'm a little late getting this up - Kaz Matsui has just struck out in the first inning as I type this - but let's consider this Fall Classic. We have the uber-hot Cinderella team against probably the most complete team in Major League Baseball.
Consider just how amazing it is that Colorado even made the playoffs. We've all been there as fans, in the waning days of a season in which our team isn't mathematically eliminated, but it's all but over. How many of us have said in jest, "Well, if we win EVERY game from here on, we've got a shot"? Here, finally, we have the team that actually went out and won every game.
We've also seen this storyline in sports before, the Cinderella team that steams along for a few weeks looking like the team of destiny until they run into the REALLY good team. At that point, Cinderella's coach turns into a pumpkin, jackknife's on top of Cinderella and the ugly step sisters turn up to pants her remains. This Series could get that ugly, as Aaron Cook and Josh Fogg aren't anyone's idea of half a World Series rotation.
That said, while my analytical side says I should just say Sox in four, strange things happen in short series - witness the 83-win Cardinals juggernaut of aught-six - so I'm going to say that the Rockies keep their Coors Field magic intact and win this thing in five games.
Oh, and by the way, the Josh Beckett hero worship being spouted by the Sportsnet colour guy is nauseating bordering on McCarverism. Apparently if it suddenly stops raining in Boston, it'll be Beckett's doing.
Hmmm, 2-0 Sox already - maybe I should've said Rox in six...
