So, the Baseball Prospectus says Red Sox in seven.

Just goes to show you, you can look at all the data you want, but baseball is baseball. When the leading baseball statisticians on the planet er, punt on calling this series, you know why baseball is the greatest game in the world. Actually, this guy says it best:

"You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all." - Earl Weaver

And so, for the first time since 1993 (when I lived in N.L.-town Philly), I will be rooting for the National League team in the Fall(-to-winter-thanks-to-greedy-major-league-baseball) Classic. And I'm ok with that. Go Rockies!
