Default Rockies/Red Sox series thread

who ya'll got?

I got Red Sox in 6 (sorry Randy). Their pitching is just too good, everyday players too experienced, etc. Much like Detroit last year, the time off will hurt Colorado's momentum.

By the way, what's the deal with them ONLY selling tickets online? Why aren't they selling any at the box office?

As much as I'd love to see Colorado win the World Series - I'm taking Boston winning in 6 games.

Don't even speak of the ticket sales. I had 6 computers and one laptop up trying to get them. I'm sure brokers in LA and NYC have half of them and are now selling them 10x face value. The Rockies really stiffed their fans over on this one. I'm so F'in pissed at them.


Rockies in 6. If they lose, I will not post until Thanksgiving.

It is getting easier and easier to despise the red sox every year. Still should take the series though. Man to man they are so much better.

But, the 2-3-2 format is awkward. Say they split the first two in beantown, then and the rockies somehow take 2 of 3 at home...

Randy, care to make an avvy bet? It wouldn't go into effect until after Thanksgiving, and it would last until Christmas Eve.

What do you say?

You take the Rockies, I take the Sox.

The Rockies have been sweeping their rivals since the beginning of the Play-off, right? I wish the Red Sox would avoid it, or the series will be extremely boring.

Actually just got to school.

I'll make that bet. You're not a Red Sox fan though so where's the fun?

I predict Red Sox forfeit. They have no heart and no skill and are the luckiest team in the league. They are an affront to all that is decent in sports with their long hair and happy go lucky attitudes!

Oops, sorry, I had a bitter Qwyjibo moment.

I predict a 7 game series and depending on who takes the mound that 7th game for their respective team, they will win. I'm a Sox fan, but we already got ours. Of course I want them to win, but I wouldn't be upset if the Rockies win. They're a great story and a great team.

Never said anything close to that. The Red Sox are clearly the better team going into this series. Just because I hate them and their fan base doesn't mean I don't see things clearly when it comes to seeing who is better.

I hope the Rockies win though. A 4-2 series win with a devastating clinching game in Fenway would be great. I want to see to see tears on the young Red Sox fans faces.

Starting pitching: Red Sox >>>>> Rockies
Bullpen: Rockies > Red Sox
Lineup: Red Sox >= Rockies
Defense: Rockies >> Red Sox

If I had money on it: Red Sox win it easily 4-1. The NL could get a lucky run like they did last year but it still sucks.

But since I don't, Rockies in 6.

It doesn't matter how much better you think the Red Sox are because the Rockies have forgotten how to lose. Boston is going to have to kick ass, not just show up at the ball park.
