Go Red Sox
With my beloved Giants nowhere to be seen in the playoffs (it was obvious there was no chance this year well before mid-season!), I've got to find someone to root for in October. Zack is rooting for his Yankees as they take on the Cleveland Indians. But Zoe and I are rooting for the Bosox - beantown's finest. In their opener against the Angels at Fenway, the Sox looked hot with young pitcher Josh Beckett blanking the Angels with a complete game 4-0 shutout. Hot, hot, hot. Looks like the Rockies are on a tear - ripping through the National League West in the last part of September and spanking the Phillies in the first two games their play-off series. I'd prefer an Arizona-Boston World Series, but it would be fun to see the Rockies continue on their current tragectory.
Go Red Sox!
