Well, my beloved Yankees have taken another quick exit from the playoffs. So now I can be objective about the rest of the post season.
Rockies vs. D-Backs
Neither team is a powerhouse. The Rockies finished 1/2 game behind Arizona in the regular season. The Rockies beat a great Phillies team in the NLDS. I think it will be a long series, but the Rockies will win it.
Red Sox vs. Indians
The Red Sox have a better bullpen, stronger bats, better fielding, and a truly cohesive team that can play small ball as well as hit for power. The Indians have good starting pitching and a 5 man rotation and the Red Sox are down to a 3 man rotation due to injuries, inluding Tim Wakefield who is not even on the active roster. Despite the pitching imbalance, I think the Red Sox will win this series.
I hate to say it....Red Sox pummel the Rockies in 5.
Next year, however....GO YANKEES!!!! (with Joe Torre)
