By the way, did you see Josh Beckett get into a shouting match with Kenny Lofton, after Lofton dropped his bat on a 3-0 pitch that was called a strike. After Lofton flew out, I’m sure Beckett called him a punk—, or something along those lines that caused the benches to clear. It looked awful familiar to the the 2002 NLCS when Lofton played with the Cardinals. He cleared the benches in the fifth inning of game 1 after he flopped to the ground on a brushback pitch from Mike Crudale. Lofton knows how to stir the pot, doesn’t he?
Back to my predictions…I completely bombed on the National League. I picked Philly over Colorado and the wrong hot streak to end. Big Z never got a chance in game 4 or 5, and the Cubs went quietly. I knew I should have gone with my gut that Boston would win, but listened to everyone elses hype and went with LA of A over the Sox. I did pick Cleveland over the Yankees and I was right that A-Rod would continue to fail in the post-season. So I had Cleveland and Philadelphia and now with the Sox going back to Boston only down 3-2, could we be ready for an Indians collapse?
