I think the 8 day layoff ruined Colorado's groove. They returned to what they were all season: a good National League team. The Red Sox are a very very good American league team. Top to bottom the Red Sox and the American League are just deeper and better than the Rockies and the National League. It's very much like the NFC dominating the NFL and Super Bowl for so many years
Red Sox starting pitching has been decent, bullpen very good (just like 2004 pen) and hitting is on fire right now. And let's not underestimate the job that Francona does. Understated and probably underrated.
Now nap time for me. Someone tell Selig to enforce rules to get hitters in the box to move the game along.
Bert gets it right (again). After giving all last night, I don't think the Rockies can pull it out tonight. ...
How long before the Patriots are no longer "America's Team?" Bob and Jonathan, this Indy game might be more of a watershed event than we all think. Above and beyond videography and single parenthood, pure and simple tedious on-field dominance may turn many states (Blue as well as Red) against us.
