Figured it was time to get this thread started. Who do you guys think will win? I'm picking Red Sox in 6.

I'd give the Indians a better shot if Wedge would take Borowski out of the closer's role. I'm afraid he's gonna kill them. But Wedge won't do that. I like Red Sox in 6, too.

Red Sox in 6 for me too.

Ramirez and Ortiz were on base something like 19-26 in the ALDS. If they keep up silly numbers like that and their pitching continues to be ridiculous, who can beat them?

Indians in 6.

I like Carmona and Sabathia...Indians offense can go toe-to-toe with the Red Sox...Borowski scares me...but Indians middle relief is a decisive advantage in this series.

Red Sox have to take one of the first two games. I would hate to see them waste a JOsh Beckett start. Schilling is hit or miss. Dice-K is an adventure everytime out. Wakefield being not 100% I don't know what to think. The bats have to stay hot as they were in the DS.

So with my heart I will say Sox in 6 and I will have to watch that in Montreal.

I think you make a good point. The first two games are full of great pitching matchups with Beckett vs. Sabathia, Schilling vs. Carmona. I think those two games are key for both teams. I think they will both be a split but if either team wins both they are in a great position considering how hit or miss the starters from there on out for both teams are. I'd say Red Sox win game 1, lose game 2 and then find a way to win 3 more while losing one more for a 6 game win.

This is lined up to be a good one tonight. This is a great pitching matchup. I'm guessing that Carmona has a stellar game tonight and the Indians pull out a win at Fenway; but, of course, you can never count Shilling out of doing something incredible in the playoffs. This is a great month for sports!

Of course, this is all moot since the Devils are playing tonight. :boogie:

Well I am just glad teh Sox got one of the first two games. Now they need at least 2 of 3 in Cleveland. I hope they don't pitch Beckett on Short rest tomorrow.

This is turning into a good series. Indians prevailed 4-2 last night as Westbrook did the job and Borowski got them 1-2-3. Cleveland up 2-1.

Just tuned into this, I have missed most of this series. Looks like Boston is on the verge of another ALCS comeback. This layoff must be hard for the Rockies. They are bound to run out of luck and they probably hate having to sit this long. If the Red Sox win this series, I think they will win the World Series.

I was amused the Indians had Beckett's ex-girlfriend (some country singer) sing the anthem before Game 5. Talk about gamesmanship, that'd be like the Rangers trotting out Melanie to sing before a playoff game lol
