WOW!!! The Colorado Rockies are in the World Series for the first time in their 15 year history. They have been on an historic run winning 21 of 22 games, including 7-0 in the first two rounds of the playoffs. Their opponent will be the Cleveland Indians or Boston Red Sox. The Rockies have an 8 game layoff until the beginning of the series.

On a side note, my favorite team, the Cincinnati Reds, have chosen Dusty Baker as the 60th manager in their history. He will be trying to improve upon a team that finished 72-90 and 80-82 over the last two years. Starting pitching and a reliable bullpen are the two main concerns for him. I don't agree with the media when they say he ruins the arms and pitching careers of young pitchers. Kerry Wood and Mark Prior had arm injuries prior to his arrival in Chicago. In fourteen years of managing, these are the only two pitchers (and highly visible) that had problems while he was manager. I am not worried about it.

But the Reds are in hiatus until late February, so:

Granted, they probably won that one game in the Arizona series because that pitcher walked the runner with the bases loaded. But, hey, you still have to able to stand there and watch the pitch go by...something that Byrnes seemed to be unable to do.

ANYWAY...I am kind glad that series is done so now I can get to bed at a decent time.

Like you said GO ROCKIES!!!
