can we just all hope that the series goes 7 games, so that dane cook will look even stupider when he screams "there's only one october" as the game is being played on november 1st?

pretty please?

People actually think the Rockies could sweep?? No way. The ALCS pretty much decided the World Series, the Rockies were fun to watch but they're NL on a weak year, and running on momentum (which will be hard to carry into Fenway after an 8 day break) instead of developed talent.

I think it's either Rockies in 5 or Sox in 7. Obviously I'm hoping for the latter.

Game 1 - sox
Game 2 - sox or rockies
Game 3 - rockies
Game 4 - rockies
Game 5 - sox or rockies
Game 6 - sox
Game 7 - sox

So you think Beckett wins Game 1 but then only has a 50/50 chance of winning Game 5?

Becket will start game 7 if there is one. I don't trust DiceK or Wake out there for the game to win it all, and it's the last game of the season, so Becket can do it.

And yes, I think it's possible the bullpen implodes in game 5. I am shaking scared of our pitchers pitching in Colorado, humidor or not. (Especially Wakefield)

But I think it's probably going to follow the exact same win pattern as the ALCS.

Beckett won't start Game 7 if he starts Game 5, although he'll be available in the bullpen.

I don't think pitching in Colorado will have any effect on Beckett, and I find it highly unlikely he loses Game 5.

And it was just announced that Wakefield is off the roster, so I guess his back is acting up again.

So now you've got a rotation like this...

Beckett
Schilling
Dice-K
Lester or Tavarez
Beckett
Schilling
Dice-K, with all hands on deck

Looks like Wake really was hurt.

Lester is my game 4 starter.

Also, this http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal...n_the_car.html
is hilarious. Schill rear ended someone before his start. If I was the driver he rear ended, I'd take his card and tell him to get his ass to the park. I'd love to see an interview with the guy he rear ended.

Francona has to forget the fourth starter, let Beckett do it. But they won't, and it's obviously gonna be Lester, advantage is they haven't faced him.

Ellsbury is starting game 1. Tavarez should get Wake's roster spot. Sadly, this means Gagme will probably remain on the roester.

Just a dumb fact (one of those "I think he just like to hear himself talk" type facts):

The last team to win game seven on the road....Pirates in 1979. I think it looks good for the Sox if they go seven games. I am hoping we do not see baseball in November though.

Well, I got my tickets for game 5. This will be the only time I say "I hope the Rockies lose a game."
