Holy Buckets! It feels like we have been waiting for EV-A for baseball to begin again–and in about 4 hours, the event we have all been waiting for: the 109th World Series.
And while I am anxious for the games to begin, I am not even that nervous about the games. Don’t get me wrong, I was the Sox to win with a fiery passion, but at this point, they are playing with house money. They have already given me everything I wanted for the 2013 Campaign: A team that plays the game the right way, doesn’t whine, are fun to watch, and won 83-85 games. It’s all gravy from here.
No matter what happens, a Sox and Cards World Series is going to be GREAT baseball–and I am really looking forward to watching…
Let’s hope I don’t fall asleep…
Lester goes in game 1, then John Lackey in game 2 tomorrow night. Supposedly, That Clay Person is supposed to start in game 3 on Saturday in St. Louis, but there have been rumblings that he is dealing with some sort of physical issue that could cause that to change. I don’t think its a surprise to anyone that more than likely some of the reason he has been struggling is he is probably running out of gas. You can’t be off for 3 months and pitch a couple rehab games and be 100%. In any event, if he DOES start game 3, I think he is going to be on a very short leash. But if he can pitch, and give them 4-5 good innings, I think that is how it will go…
Right now, John Farrell is saying that Clay is fine, and that he will be the game 3 starter, but who know if that is truth, or posturing?
