Beckett vs. Francis - Wednesday 8:27 EST start @ Fenway

No word on the rest of the rotation as the Red Sox work out who starts where.

Re: Official Rockies vs. Red Sox 2007 WS Thread - 10/22/07 07:29 AM

i think it would make the most sense to keep the rotation the same. schilling, dice-K, wakefield/beckett

does j ellsbury start at CF over coco? seems like the hotter bat as of late

There are Rockies fans on this board. The Indians thread got lots of posts with one Indians fan.

BTW, this is really biased: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=Aj...p&type=lgns

I'm an Indians fan through and through.

I quit reading when I looked and it said "J.D. Drew...EVEN"

Re: Official Rockies vs. Red Sox 2007 WS Thread - 10/23/07 11:35 AM

lol yeah, Hawpe is like leagues better than Drew. I was like..WHAT THE HELL? I'd even say Youkilis and Helton are even. Pedroia didnt drive a run in the ALCS until Game 7...SS is definetely won by CO. 3rd base is even. V-tek doesn't come up in the clutch very often and their catcher has been awesome so far... I guess Tek wins bc of past postseason experience and how valuable he is to the pitching staff...Manny wins in the OF, but Holliday has been great, too. Not too sure about center field going to the Rockies. Jacoby can play great defense and Coco will prolly start a few games as well. *shrug*... I already discussed right field

DH-obv. the Sox. PItching, havent even heard most of their starters before they got good...Sox again. Relief, best bullpen in baseball goes to the Sox. Sox bench is nice, but I don't see it coming into play.

We'll see about the managers...Whether who starts in center, how the rotation is managed, extra for the Sox.

I think it goes 6-7 games.

Did I say he had a decent postseason? No, I said he has had an awesome one. Which is why I was second guessing that guy saying Tek won the catcher position.

Colorado's Governor Bill Ritter is betting a box of steaks that the Rockies will defeat the Red Sox and win the team's first baseball championship.

Ritter plans to discuss the wager this afternoon in a telephone call with Governor Deval Patrick, whose staff has not yet announced what New England delicacy will be bet on Boston.

The Colorado meat includes beef from state Representative Kathleen Curry's Tomichi Creek Ranch in Gunnison and organic buffalo steaks from the Maverick Ranch. Not that Ritter expects to ship anything to Massachusetts.

"The governor is very confident that the hottest team in baseball will do just fine in the World Series," said spokesman Evan Dreyer.

The hottest team in baseball is the Rockies, Dreyer added, having won 21 of their last 22 games. Not the Red Sox, which outscored the Cleveland Indians 30 to 5 in the last three games of the American League Championship Series.

US Senators Edward M. Kennedy and John F. Kerry of Massachusetts made their own wager with their colleagues from Colorado, betting New England clam chowder and lobster rolls that the Red Sox will win their second World Series in three years.

Colorado's US senators, Wayne Allard and Ken Salazar, met the wager with Colorado-raised beef. The losing senators have agreed to donate the winning food to charity.

Message from Curt Schilling on his blog:

Congratulations to Josh Beckett, 2007 ALCS MVP. I don’t doubt for a second that we don’t get here if he doesn’t clutch up with arguably the most dominating post season start in my lifetime. So many guys came up huge but the awesome part of this was that I don’t think at any time after game 4 did we think about the deficit as anything other than a number.

After game 4 it got very easy in the sense that there was zero gray area, it was win or go home. That’s not to make it sound trivial but game 5 was truly the first time this entire season when we had our backs to the wall for real, and the team responded as a championship team has to, and will.


Josh comes out throwing 125 in the first and Youk jump starts us with a bomb. Game 5 we took a mentality of one pitch, one out, one inning at a time and ran with it. The exact same thing we said from game 4 of the ALCS in 2004 on through. It’s one thing to say it, but another to actually put it in play. The guys did that and that’s as big a reason as any we ended up winning 3 straight. I also know that the last three games created some chemistry that only win or go home games can create. We embraced it and ran with it.


Congratulations to the Cleveland Indians. Say what you want but that’s a hell of a team with a hell of a future. The core of the team is incredibly young and talented and I would imagine they’ll be participating in many more October games over the next 5-10 years. Even though their big two had games they’d like to replay, those kids are going to be fine. They’ll learn from this and get better. I know CC a bit and he’s a kid that gets it and respects the game, he’s on the path that if he can stay healthy will most likely end up with a plaque in Cooperstown. Jake pitched an absolutely gutsy game last night. It will get lost in the shuffle but to finish with the linescore he did after the pressure we put him in those first 3 innings was nothing short of awesome. Carmona already proved from 2006 to 2007 that he knows how to learn and I don’t doubt for a second that he’ll be a force in this league for years to come.

It was a hell of a series that felt every bit the heavyweight fight it appeared. No one budged and the scores will NOT reflect the intensity and closeness of the games or the series. I thought it was pretty cool that what I thought were the two best teams in the AL both made it to the ALCS and gave fans a series worthy of crowning a league champion.

Now we move on to the last dance against a team that’s basically lost 1 game in the past month. Some people are already crowing about the NL being the ‘little sister’ to the AL but I can assure you every one of us knows that this is going to be a hell of a series. I think, like pretty much every other World Series, it will come down to starting pitching and who gets the most out of their guys. Both teams can hit so the team that executes it’s game plan from the mound I think will be the first team to 4 wins over the next 10 days. None of us have forgotten the 3 games we matched up with them earlier this year and the offensive whipping they gave us in 2 of those games.

Hats off to Sox nation as well. Fenway was absolutely electric for games 6 and 7. It was night and day from games 1 and 2 and every one of us noticed. There can be no doubts going ahead how important Fenway and home field advantage is for us when the city of Boston is worked up.

Congratulations to Terry Francona as well. In a city that features armchair QB’ing and media second guessing as legitimate paid professions, he stayed true to himself and true to us as players and managed his ass off. I still think he’s the most underrated manager in baseball. Sticking to your guns is hard enough, but in a town where the home team is pretty much second only to catholicism doing so is even harder. We won because he made the moves he had to make, and because he trusts us to do what we’re supposed to do when it matters most.

A few random observations. The Red Sox in me is happy Joe Torre is no longer in charge in NY. The person in me wonders how does a guy who obviously has the respect and loyalty of his entire roster, a guy who’s taken his team to 12 straight post seasons, a guy who exudes class and respect, how does he, in the midst of what might have been his most challenging and defining season and post season, not only have to manage his team in a best of 5 win or go home series, but also answer a billion questions about being basically told ‘win or you’re out’? How did it come to that? I have never had a chance to get to know Mr Torre beyond handshakes of congratulations or hellos, but I have never heard a player on his team utter anything but respect for the guy. Much like Boston, managing a 175m+ roster of super star players, in that market, with a hack to writer ratio bordering on 100-1, how does he basically win pretty much every year, get to the post season and get an ultimatum at THAT point in the season? I have always thought very highly of Mr Steinbrenner as well, anyone that pours that much of himself into his team, is that dedicated to his teams fans is ok by me and I would think ok by pretty much anyone that plays for him since he never makes issue with paying the huge salaries players make these days but only adds the caveat of “Just win a World Series”. I don’t think players have ever had problems with owners like that.

Then he gets ‘offered’ a pay cut with strings? That sucks. Was very cool to see the mass of Yankee fans at the “keep Joe” rally though. Amazing how that loyalty card plays out in the public eye and through the media when the shoes on the other foot. Managers don’t win ballgames, players do, and I think you’d be surprised to know how bad we feel when managers we care about get fired because we know, if we have one ounce of integrity, that our failures as players are, most times, what gets a manager fired.

Terry Francona is a genius since he arrived in Boston? Having been on his team the first day he managed in the big leagues through today I’ll tell you up front that he is not much different. He does suck much more at cribbage now than he ever did and his fantasy teams continue to suck as well, but as a manager he’s not really different. I think the interim jobs he had in Cleveland and Oakland showed him the inner workings of baseball front offices more and helped him in some areas but in the clubhouse, dugout, and on the field he’s pretty much the same non-jersey wearing guy he was in Philly, he just has a front office comprised entirely of people that understand winning games on the field matters more than anything else. The ‘know it alls’ in Philadelphia, from Conlin to Cataldi to Macnow, aren’t really know it alls are they? Their people who’s life it is, who’s entire job description, revolves around creating news or stories where there is none, to make you think their ‘in’ and you’re not, and if you want to truly know or get smarter, listen to them. Pretty cool when you can be wrong pretty much 90% of the time and still be considered an expert.

Wonder how smart Tito looks to the guys that hacked him in Philly now? 3 post seasons, 2 world series appearances in 4 years here. Nice to know he gets that last laugh.

Starting Wednesday it’s on.

BOSTON -- Ed Montague, known for his calm demeanor and consistent strike zone, will serve as the crew chief for the World Series. It is the fourth time he's drawn the umpiring assignment.

The six-man crew announced Tuesday includes three umpires working their first Series: Ted Barrett, Laz Diaz and Mike Everitt. Chuck Meriwether and Mike Reilly complete the crew.

Montague will be behind the plate Wednesday night when the Colorado Rockies play the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 at Fenway Park. Montague was last the Series crew chief in 2004, when the Red Sox won the championship.

Diaz will be at first base, Barrett at second, Meriwether at third, Everitt in left field and Reilly in right for the opener.

All six umpires called games during the first round of the playoffs this month. Montague also worked the NL wild-card tiebreaker between the Rockies and San Diego Padres.

This will be the sixth Series and 21st postseason assignment overall for Montague, in his 32nd year as a major-league umpire. He comes from a baseball family -- his father, Ed, was an infielder for the Cleveland Indians in a career that began in 1928 and lasted through 1932 and then was a scout for the San Francisco Giants for 40 years.

BOSTON (AP) — Sounds like a baseball flip-flop. Rudy Giuliani, a lifelong New York Yankees fan, said Tuesday he's pulling for their most hated rivals, the Boston Red Sox, to win the World Series over the Colorado Rockies.

"I'm rooting for the Red Sox," the Republican presidential contender said in response to a question, sparking applause at the Boston restaurant where he was picking up a local endorsement.

"I'm an American League fan, and I go with the American League team, maybe with the exception of the Mets," he said. "Maybe that would be the one time I wouldn't because I'm loyal to New York."

Giuliani's Yankees lost in the first round of the playoffs, then lost their manager when Giuliani's friend, Joe Torre, refused to accept a pay cut and walked away. Giuliani said the Yankees had "a great season."

The former New York mayor said his declaration of temporary Red Sox loyalty was "not just because I'm here in Massachusetts."

"In Colorado, in the next week or two, you will see, I will have the courage to tell the people of Colorado the same thing, that I am rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series," he said.

Indeed, if Giuliani was pandering, he miscalculated.

In the last presidential election, Colorado went with Republican President Bush, and recent history shows Massachusetts voters would sooner adopt Manhattan clam chowder as the state's official food than vote Republican in 2008.

Of course, just to the north is New Hampshire — home to many Red Sox fans — and the nation's first primary.

"9:30: Has anyone ever kept track of the number of times Fox is running a taped in-game interview with a manager right as something exciting is happening in the game? I swear, it has gotten to the point that you're terrified if they interview the manager when the other team is up. Anyway, it just happened again -- they were interviewing Francona as Jhonny Peralta slammed a double off the left-field wall. (Ending the no-hitter that I was refusing to mention, by the way.) Fortunately, Cool Papa Lofton grounded out to end the inning."

Honestly is it even worth it to watch. Obviously Beckett = Jesus H. Christ. After the pirst pitch of the game to the Sox was hit outta the park I said, "That's what happens when you don't play for 10 days." This could be the most lopsided WS ever.

Where it began, I can't begin to know when
But then I know it's growing strong
Oh, wasn't the spring, whooo
And spring became the summer
Who'd believe you'd come along

Hands, touching hands, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
I've been inclined to believe it never would

And now I, I look at the night, whooo
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two, oh
And when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when holding you

Oh, one, touching one, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet Caroline
Good times never seem so good
Oh I've been inclined to believe it never would

Ohhh, sweet Caroline, good times never seem so good

Must be nice to have the money to afford these tickets....because that lady they just showed singing sweet caroline.....yeah, she didn't know the words or have any kind of rhythm....if you had been to Fenway as a season ticket holder, you would no doubt know the words to that song at least....pffffft.

Re: Official Rockies vs. Red Sox 2007 WS Thread - 10/25/07 11:24 PM

I'm a bandwagon Colorado fan...said that before....Royals are my favorite team...so, yeah, I probably do suck.

IF I was a diehard Rockies fan, I don't think you could say I suck because of that. Unless, you indeed, are a douche.

So, go ahead.
Posted by: TheWrightStuff30

Re: Official Rockies vs. Red Sox 2007 WS Thread - 10/25/07 11:25 PM

Okay then, the Royals suck, so you suck.

And I'm a douche. At least the team I picked is winning, which makes me right and you wrong. So I can be okay with being a douche as long as I'm right.

Re: Official Rockies vs. Red Sox 2007 WS Thread - 10/25/07 11:27 PM

And that is a big difference between you and I. I don't feel the need to be right all the time, even on a forum such as this.

Enjoy. I'm done for the night with this.

Congrats to the Red Sox being up 2-0. Still trying to get a ticket for Sunday night...we'll see.

Sucks to hear that. Lester is just pitching amazing tonight which sucks for the Rockies. This is the biggest turn around in the history of baseball. Team has so much momentum then they just choke. I guess the ALCS was the WS this year.

It's alright...he got in for $300...so, I can tell myself that I have an extra 3 bills in my pocket...but, really, wouldn't care if I didn't.

Running to the crapper every hour or so for 2 days has kind of sucked, yes. I don't get ill that often. But it came at me this time.
