Colorado Rockies vs. Boston Red Sox For World Title

The Colorado Rockies will face the Boston Red Sox in the World series, beginning Wednesday in Boston.

The Red Sox "earned the right" to compete against them with their win against Cleveland Sunday night.

The Rockies have nothing to be afraid of, since they have a record of beating the Red Sox:

The Rockies have recent success on their side. During Interleague Play, the Rockies won two of three games at Fenway on June 12-14, as they outscored the Red Sox, 20-5, in the series. Additionally, the Rockies were one of just two teams to beat the Red Sox's top two pitchers, Josh Beckett and Curt Schilling. They lost the opener, 2-1, as Tim Wakefield outdueled Aaron Cook.

I'm going with the Sox in 6 as they have home field advantage, better pitching and the long layoff between series' will hurt the Rockies momentum just like it did the Tigers in 2006. How funny would it be if after waiting 86 years for their 2004 title, the Sox won another one in three? Manny Ramirex will again be Series MVP.
