I hope you and Reader # 1 are ready for the World Series.I'm more than ready. I'm sure Reader No. 1 is too. ... I admit it: I had severe doubts, going into the playoffs and after they fell behind 3-1 in the ALCS, whether this hot-and-cold team could do it. They proved me wrong. I'm more than glad to admit it. ... BTW: I was at Saturday's game. Drew's grand-slam homer was by far the highlight of the night. No doubt. ... BTW II: Coco had to be yanked. Jacoby is a clutch scrapper at the plate and a force once on base. ... Julio Lugo scares the hell out of me. At the plate. On base. On the field. His mistakes last night, fortunately, were overcome by the clutch play of others.
The eight day layoff for Colorado will sap their momentum and spirit. I feel better about the World Series than I did about Games 6 and 7 of the ALCS. And I felt verrrrry good before each of those games.
