A New Streak

Well the 21 out of 22 is over. It is time to start a new streak. The Rockies lost (embarrassed maybe?) last night 13-1 in game 1 of the World Series. For most of the country east of the Mississippi River, this will be thought of as a typical American League dominant-who's this from the National League series. I do agree that the Rockies looked terrible last night.

More likely, and if you are Manager Clint Hurdle you will expound on this, this was the Rockies first appearance in a World Series in a venue that has hosted many big post-season games. They looked more intimidated by the surroundings and the big stage than anything else. It is one thing playing a meaningless inter-league series in June and playing the Series in October. Okay, the first game is out of the way. The Red Sox have in the bag. Now the Rockies can shake the first game jitters and play like they know how and resemble the team that won 21 of 22 to get here.
