Wish I didn't have to type this.
A potent combo of untimely (or absolutely no) hitting, previously overachieving pitching that didn't elevate its game like it has in the past month, and a good load of other reasons (the Sox are a better team, Hurdle probably let the pitching thang get out of hand in the first game-kind of fucking up the vibe for the rest of the series, and that jackass right behind homeplate at Coors with all the stupid signs was allowed to continue her lame sign flashing that annoyed me during the Phils and D-Backs series) pretty much spelled disaster for the Rockie's virgin voyage to the Fall classic.
I feel like I should just enjoy the fact that the Rockies are in the World Series, but the amazing run that got them here has frankly spoiled me, and I know (because I've seen it in effect) that this group is capable of some pretty nutty shit.
However, the past few games have shown that magic is quite finite....so is nutty shit. Not alot of clutch...good lord Hawpe has looked horrible, Helton has not risen to the occasion during his deserved trip to the Ultimate Stage, and Fuentes should pretty much never pitch another ball for the Rockies (unless of course they are down by 5-6 runs tomorrow night in the 8th, which they very well may be).
I'm pissed and pissed. The Rockies are done for 2007...maybe they can scratch out a win instead of getting swept, that'd be good.
Some other shit:
The Sox should be pretty stoked about the rooks they have right now. Pedroia and Ellsbury were killer tonight...fuck those runts.
Papelbon's weird mouth O-formation before he pitches makes me think he might be fantasizing about blowing the tiny dicks of Red Sox Nation. Good for him.
