On to the ALCS...

Great ALDS for the Sox. Game 2 was probably the best baseball game I've ever been to. Manny killed that ball! Top it all off with the fact that Beckett and Schilling were top notch, and that the bullpen was able to rescue a very mediocre start by Dice-K, and I'm feeling very good.

Indians or Yankees? To be honest, I don't think the Yanks will pull this one out. It's for the best, because I don't have the energy for another epic, 7-game series with each game lasting until the wee hours of the morning. Those weeks are absolutely draining, to the extent that whatever emotions come from the end result are wildly out of control. (Hopeless Despair = '03, Amazed Freak Out = '04).

That's not to say that the Sox are easy favorites to win me a free couch it all. Cleveland has pitched really well and played hard baseball. Even if we were able to beat them, we could face Colorado -- the hottest team in baseball -- in the World Series.
