Well, it starts tonight, and even though I could care less about the two teams, I think this is going to be a great series.

Josh Beckett is the Red Sox's Game-One starter. The Rockies counter with Jeff Francis. The two are a combined 5-0 in five starts in this postseason.

I'm going with the BoSox in 6.

I'm only going with the Red Sox because I hate the Yankees.

...actually, let me rephrase that. I don't hate the Yankees, I hate Yankee fans, and I know nothing pisses them off more than seeing the Red Sox doing better than them.

Beckett's a good ol' boy from Spring, Texas, just north of Houston. He's one of the best pitchers in baseball. We could definitely use him down here in Houston; I doubt he'll leave Boston, though. Red Sox in 5.

I'll go with the Rockies. They beat my Phills, so I'll be rooting for them.

By the way. I saw a guy this past weekend that looked just like every Phillies player from the 1993 World Series team. Pot-bellied, mouth full of tobacco, shoulder length mullet. It was a sight, but not entirely out of place for the event.

Well, I happen to be a Yankee fan but I'm hoping the BoSox win. They got this far, they ought to go all the way for the American League.

I detest baseball.
But I thought that World Series was already over.

Not picking on you again, but if this statement is true, you are not allowed to watch baseball. Ever again!!!

A "Yankee fan" cannot and would not ever root for Boston for anything. Period. Not even their Clam Chowduh.

Guliani made the mistake of saying the same thing. Goodbye Presidential campaign. And don't think you'll see him at too many more Yankee games.

Maybe I'm just more mature than most Yankee fans.

Heh. Last time I actually watched a full baseball game was when the Red Sox were in the World Series.

I'm going to have to watch again tonight.

GO RED SOX!!!!!!! :-D

Two days, it turns out, was the perfect amount of time for the Red Sox to recharge and reload for the showcase known as the World Series.

In fact, the Sox looked like relentless world beaters on that stage in Wednesday night's Game 1, putting on a hitting and pitching clinic in a 13-1 romp over the Colorado Rockies.

Eight days, on the other hand -- which is how long the Rockies had to wait around for their first appearance in the World Series -- looked like way more than they wanted or needed.

When Josh Beckett (seven innings, six hits, one run, nine strikeouts) wasn't blowing fastballs right by the rusty Rockies or freezing them with his curveball and changeup, the zoned-in Boston bats were sending whistling liners all over the Fenway Park outfield and making lefty Jeff Francis look un-ace-like.

Curt Schilling knows better than to think he's the World Series workhorse who dominated hitters in 2001 and '04. But he also knows he isn't the same pitcher whom the Rockies roughed up in June.
Schilling has come to terms with the pitcher he has become. With his 41st birthday coming up next month and with right shoulder trouble costing him a month and a half of action at midseason, he can't know exactly what kind of stuff he'll have on a given day. As he prepares to start Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday night with a chance to give the Red Sox a 2-0 series lead, Schilling's key is to know what to do with whatever he has.

Nope, but did you know that Steve Perry was the good luck charm for the Chicago White Sox?

Wow, the echo in here is brutal.

Look Gem27, I am a baseball fan. I've already given Musicalfreddiemercury a ticket for spouting false Yankee propaganda, so now it's your turn.

90% don't like it? OK, well OVER 90% can't play baseball at that level... but the one's that can would rather play in a Brazillian league, right? No. The BIG LEAGUES are in North America, sorry dude. I didn't create the league. But that's where the top ballplayers play.

I'm sure your skills are good, but I doubt good enough, so you stick to whatever league you're watching and we'll watch our WORLD SERIES.

Oh, and by the way, I call it that BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE CALL IT!!! I guess I'm a follower, not a leader.

For starters, its MAGICAL, but that's okay, "musical" makes sense, so I'll let it slide.

Second, for the record, what I was "spouting" was not in any way false. All the Yankee fans in my home are cheering for the BoSox - granted there are only two of us, but that's not the point. Maybe realizing not all Yankee fans are fanatics has unsettled your world, but hey, thems the breaks.
