Baseball sux...until the playoffs.
I hate baseball. It's because I played it for 10 years; and when I add up all that time -- standing, chewing, waiting -- I get the feeling I could have used it better. If I cared, I would be a Yankee fan. Will be once they trim their payroll 85% and get a life ... no way to gel a clubhouse with so many pricks.
But you gotta enjoy the way the Sox play fundamental ball. Base hits, walks, sacrifice flies, hit & runs, clever pitching, tricky foxy clever pitching, everyone contributing.
This is baseball played old-school: they just chip away and when you look at the scoreboard, the Sox have one hit, one error and three runs. And when you're off to get ice cream, they start to mix in the new-school steroid style by loading up the bases and hitting it off the close-in left-field fence like a game of pepper.
They get blood from a stone. Then they chop off your scalp.
Colorado will win maybe one or two games in the World Series.
