Here are the reasons the Rockies will win.
All the pundits are picking the Red Sox except for those that are natural contrarians. When there is a strong consensus in anything, look for the opposite result.
Man-Ram (Manny Ramirez) will trip over his hair on the base paths at a critical juncture in the series.
The Rockies had no business being in the playoffs. Forget the near unprecedented run they are on, the Brewers saved the Rockies asses twice just to get to the one game playoff with San Diego and then the Rockies entered the bottom of the 13th with a two run deficit and won. The whole scenario makes for a bad movie of the week it’s so unlikely.
Matt Holiday is like a hairless pit bull. That’s got to be a good thing.
The Red Sox are a better team. The American League is head and shoulders better than the pathetic National League. Josh Beckett is Superman in the World Series and Playoffs and should neutralize Jeff Francis. Most of the Rockies players hit about 50 points worse on the road than at home and the Sox have home field advantage. The Red Sox have refined the word clutch with their 3-1 comeback vs. Cleveland and their 3-0 comeback vs. NY in 2004. The Rockies have been idle so long the seasons have changed. EVERYTHING points to the BoSox taking this thing in as few as five games. That is why I’m guaranteeing the ROCKIES win, and I think they are going to beat Beckett tonight which will have everyone at ESPN flipping their positions faster than Hillary.
Other Rockies advantages:
Clint Hurdle is a cool customer and has kept his team loose.
Todd Helton is one of those destined players to get a ring.
Tulo will have a strong series after a mediocre NLCS.
I hate Boston.
Man-Ram doesn’t even care, though he will have a big series.
The altitude will mess with the Red Sox equilibrium.
And most importantly, because McDad said so!
Rockies win. If I have to pick the number of games, I say 5, but don’t hold me to it.
