Arizona (as a fan base) has just proved they are not worthy of having a team!

Yeah, no kidding. Come on -- water bottles?? If you're going to throw stuff on the field, that's about the lamest thing you can throw out there. Whatever happened to throwing beer, hot dog wrappers and batteries?

I was at games 1,2,6 and 7 of the 2001 World Series. This was right after 9/11, so it was still an odd time. The Yanks lost all 4 of those games, so of course I was bitter...but my strongest memory of that series was just how fucked up their fans were. Just classless, rude and of course totally lacking baseball knowledge. It blew me away. And, Phoenix is not a bad city or anything. It was just a fucked up situation. So, tonight sucks but I have to say that it does not surprise me.

Go Rockies.

Glad to see Arizona's butt was kicked in Game 1.



Now, the Cubs can laugh right back at them for once.

The Rockies are playing with house money, and kicking the house's ass. 18 of 19 in late September/October...thats unheard of.

What's odd about that is that Phoenix Suns fans have a generally good reputation...usually fan bases in a city will have the same personality regardless of the sport (take Eagles, Phillies, and Flyers fans for example).

The Rockies look absolutely unstoppable. It will be interesting to see how they do in the WS (because I think they're in)...they're hot but they'll face a better team in Boston/Cleveland.

What's even more amazing is that the Rockies don't have a true ace on their pitching staff. Francis comes the closest I guess with 17 wins, but his ERA was over 4, and that's quite poor in the NL. Furthermore, they only had one other pitcher hit double digits in wins. Amazing.

Pitching and defense wins playoff games, but the Rockies are bucking that trend right now. Makes you wonder how far it will take them. I personally don't think they can beat the pitching of the Indians or Red Sox, with the depth that both of those clubs have.

Current line for CLE-BOS game 1 is CLE +142, BOS -157.

Accuscore gives CLE a 46% chance of winning tonight. I'd jump all over this, but I can't bring myself to bet against my own team straight-up.

Truth is with the series line as it stands (Cle +150, Bos -170), the proper bet would be Cleveland considering you'll get 2 starts each from C.C. Deville Sabbathia and Gerry Fausto Carmona.

The Sox should be favored, but not at such a price, more like Bos -140, Cle +120.

But much like you I can't/won't do it.

I never bet my team. Either I'd bet on them, and if they lost I'd be doubly pissed...or I'd bet against them and be torn between rooting against my team or rooting against money.

Generally the NBA fan is a bit different though. Not sure what it is, but NBA fans (outside of beer tossing Pistons fans), they do not relate to the baseball/football/hockey fnas.

Just my opinion though.
