    The million-dollar question: Will Matsuzaka be up for the challenge? But I guess I'd rather have him than Westbrook.

    Cleveland better hope they get to Matsuzaka in the first three or four innings, because I think they're going to see a lot of Beckett and Papelbon after that.

    There is no chance in hell that they will face Beckett unless they are head.

    Boy. Westbrook looked pretty darn good in Game #3. I'm, of course, hoping this is where Matsuzaka comes up big (kinda like Drew!).

    Well, at 9-2 in the 8th, I'll call this one for Boston.. what a rally from down 3-1. But I sense there is a third base manager who may be looking for a job. Errors and bad fielding KILLED Cleaveland.

    Walking back from the Coolidge Corner Theater with my roommate just now (which unsurprisingly was almost completely empty) to our apartment in Brighton we were enjoying the midnight autumn air with the heat of an Indian summer when the fireworks and cheers erupted out past the horizon. It's the first time in my life that I've gotten news by the world literally exploding around me. Congratulations Red Sox!

    That hurts. That really, really hurts. Not as painful as the 1997 World Series loss, but close. Watching the Red Sox take apart the Indians the last 3 games was just as bad as watching Florida take apart tOSU earlier this year.

    I feel bad for Kenny Lofton. He just has to be on the wrong team at the wrong time:

    2002: On Giants team that blew 3-2 lead in the World Series.
    2003: On Cubs team that blew 3-1 lead in the NLCS.
    2004: On Yankees team that blew 3-0 lead in the ALCS.
    2007: On Indians team that blew 3-1 lead in the ALCS.

    It's just not meant to be for a national or world championship to be in Ohio this year!

    Congrats to the Red Sox and Go Rockies!

    The Red Sox probably haven't ever played "at altitude" before so that's a handicap for them in the WS.

    The air is thinner so the ball will go farther when Ortiz hits it. [​IMG]

    Never mind Ortiz, it's Pedroia who will benefit. Ortiz and Manny don't really need extra distance. [​IMG]

    Manny better hit it out of the park in Coors Field because he might not even leg out a single for a ball that hits the wall...

    Congrats to fans of both teams that made it to the series! As a Tigers fan I am jealous, but I am looking forward to a better series than some might think.

    Why are they just putting tickets on sale now? I tried and failed to buy World Series tickets a week ago.
