    October 14, 2009:
    Tick Tock Tick Tock

    Posted by Christine E. at 5:25 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    Holy…Buckets…. 24 (yeah, I said TWENTY FOUR) weeks until meaningful Red Sox Baseball.

    Now, of course, there will be some hot stove (Jason Bay, Alex Gonzales, Jason Varitek, et al) and Spring Training will begin in February….but otherwise


    Some random thoughts with regard to the upcoming Red Sox-less postseason:

    NLCS begins tomorrow, with the Dodgers vs the Phillies in LA, and the ALCS begins on Friday night, with the Angels vs the Skanks in New York.

    And, even tho the Sox are not at the dance, here are my postseason predictions:

    NLCS: Tough one–but I think the Phillies have better pitching, and have been here before so I am going to have to go with that.

    Phillies in 6…

    ALCS: Another tough one, but not for the same reasons–as I mentioned before, I think the Angels have a much better chance of beating the Skanks than the Sox ever did, at least at this point in the season (It was much more fun when the Sox were winning the season series 8-0) But, as much as it pains me to say it, the Skanks have bought themselves a very good and expensive team–which may be enough. But I think the Angels have a fire in their belly–and Nick Adenhart on their mind. And it would not be the 1st time a team has won with skill, and a whole lotta heart….

    Angels in 6…

    Yes, I think there will be an Angels/Phillies World Series–and the Angels will in it all in 5 games…

    But in all the years I have done this, I think I have been right maybe once….so we will see…

    Coming up: The American League and the National League Championship Series–who will be going to the World Series?

    Anyone but the Skanks–please…

    24 more weeks–oh boy…
