Boston Calling…

..is anyone home? I mean…seriously. Here at Denver Metblogs we’ve been working to get more writers in the door and mixing it up a little and Boston’s just kind puttern’ along over ‘der. Boston, based upon what I’ve seen, you’re team is gonna lose.

And even if by some miracle of Pope John Paul II (rest in peace) comes back from the dead, blows open his tomb in a fiery display of righteousness and blesses the Red Sox as his first move as DOMINATOR…it still doesn’t change the fact that you’ve got an overpaid baseball team with arrogance to match and players who seem so full of themselves that they seem asleep at the wheel until it’s a do or die situation and suddenly they wake up and decide to save the world.

Did I mention I’m not a fan of the Boston Red Sox? It was great watching ’em break the curse. Really. But now they’re like the Yankees and I think they need to go the way of the Yankees. Embarrassed, humbled and maybe even in tears if we can manage it.

The Rockies are an awesome team filled with humble, focused and mature young guys who simply want to play ball and enjoy it. They don’t posture. They don’t say things like, “It doesn’t matter” and act like a fool when they’re in dire straights. They focus. They pursue. They succeed.

I believe your Colorado Rockies can win the World Series. Sox…get ready to be ROCKED!

The trash talk…HAS BEGUN!

    Sorry man, I gotta side with the BoSox on this one. You’re just plain outmatched. Your ace got rocked tonight and while your starters have been consistent, you don’t have a Schilling and Matsuzaka following up in the coming days. You wasted half of your bullpen tonight leaving less fresh arms for tomorrow. Your hitters are good, yes. Their hitters are better. Beckett is a different creature in the post season. I don’t care if you guys beat him in June. I don’t care if you beat Schilling in June. October baseball is an entirely different beast.

    The Rox have made a good story. They will make a fun series out of it. I have no illusions that they will be swept. But I fear the storybook ending is not to be told this year.

    Oh and … for those of you who love the “well they’re going to have to play three in the altitude” argument … this isn’t football. This isn’t soccer. Baseball is a slow game. There is very little running and when they have to make a dash to catch a fly ball, there will inevitably be 2 or 3 minutes of rest while they wait for something else to be hit. The altitude will be meaningless to the energy level of the majority of the players. It will come in quite handy to everyones bats.

    “You’re just plain outmatched”

    Meh, it’s baseball. Things are still very much unpredictable. I still believe Denver’s the better overall team and they’re the ones who should win. I believe they can. Course I think it shoulda’ been the Indians in my op. I’m always rooting for the underdog…:)

    To be honest, I don’t care about the Sox. On the other side, I figure they don’t care about us. So I figure we’re even.

    I fear they may head the way of the Yankees with the salaries and all. My hope is that other teams will pick up on how the Rockies got here through hard work, marinating the talent and letting them stew a little to a perfect boil.

    If by some frackin’ tear in the time space continuum your Colorado Rockies don’t win The World Series, I won’t be disappointed. It’s been a great ride and I’ll never forget this season as long as I live. We’ve made it this far. All we can do is dream, hope and pray.

    Go Rockies!
