This series could be the best series in baseball history. The Colorado Rockies, winners of 21 of their last 22 games, against the Boston Red Sox, with the best pitcher and most powerful line-up in the game. Many will concider this to be an easy win for the Red Sox. Hold the phone though, the Rockies took a 3 game series from the Red Sox earlier this year, at Fenway Park. And the Rockies just didn't face anyone in Boston's strong rotation. They faced the knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, the new Mr. October Josh Beckett, and the postseason master, Curt Schilling. The Rockies, a team with virtually a bunch of nobody's, have truly defined the word "team" by coming up with clutch hitting and precision pitching. The Rockies also swept through the playoffs knocking off the heavily favored Philidelphia Phillies in the Divisional round and then took care of the best team in the National League, the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies are on a roll like no one has ever seen before. Can they sweep the series? I don't think so. I can see them losing Game 1 because of the 8 day lay off. However, the Red Sox have been down this road before. In 2004, they swept the Angels then went down 3-0 to the Yankees before winning 4 straight to advance to the World Series. This year, they swept the Angels again and went down 3-1 to the Indians before coming back to win the series in 7 games. Two hot teams, one fall classic, one historical year.

I don't think it was a great series at all. The Rockies got crushed! It was so horrible.

Anyone who thinks either team will sweep haven't seen any playoff games.I will not be surprised to see this go 7.All I do know is it will be a great series.
