Next Stop, World Series

Phillies at Rays for game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday October 22 at 8:00pm et on FOX.  This is the series I wanted once the League Championship Series’ started.  Even though I wanted it, I’m sure MLB was rooting for a Dodger vs. Red Sox series.  If that would have happened it would have no doubt been a ratings bonanza.  The storyline of a Torre coached and Manny lead Dodger team playing the Red Sox would have been tv gold, but it ain’t happening.  I have to be honest, I didn’t think the Rays would beat the Red Sox.  The Rays just beat the shit out of the ball in games 2-5.  It was nuts.  They are hands down the most fun team to watch.  They are good, young, and energetic.  Not only were they scoring an ungodly amount of runs, they pretty much shut down the Red Sox with their pitching.  On the other hand, there are the Phillies.  They have a scary three-headed monster in Rollins, Utley, and Howard.  To go along with those three, the Phillies have Victorino, Burrell, and Werth.  So it is safe to say that their offense will be just fine.  Then to go along with that powerhouse offense they have a solid rotation beginning with NLCS MVP Cole Hamels.  So both of these teams has what it takes to bring home the trophy.  I like both teams, but since I have to pick one to win, I am going with the Rays in 7 and B.J. Upton going home with the World Series MVP.  I am pumped about the series.  It has excitement written all over it.
