Time to get this started. I am picking Boston in 5. The Rockies have had to sit and besides that, I think there luck is just bound to run out. Still have to give them a ton of credit for making it this far, lets see how far they actually can go. I hate the Red Sox but they deserve to be here. Congrats to them on their comeback over the Indians.

What do you guys think about this series?

Rockies in four.

C'mon, I gotta believe that something magical can still happen in professional sports, that it's not all going to be drug-addled lunatics and safe clean mind-numbing drones controlling the sports world. (Not that I'm accusing the Red Sox of that, in fact, I'll be happy with whoever wins it this year, I'd just like to see the magical/historical Rockies run play out, it'll be good for baseball and sports in general).

Oh, I forgot, monster payroll difference$ can only be mentioned and whined about when it comes to the Yankee$ of the late 90's, and the gap show above is similar is not, greater, then the percentage the Yankee$ enjoyed in the late 90's....payroll was mentioned over and over and over then...why not now?

I am not suggesting payroll IS the reason, what I am suggesting is that fans and the media bitch about this over and over again with the Yankee$, why not the Red $ox?

Keep the hypocri$y train rollin! :rolleyes:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

So Boston is 82 million over Cleveland. The Yankees would be 42 million over Boston and 124 over Cleveland. Boston definitely spends a ton but I can still see why the Yankees get the most press over it. The gap between Boston and Yankees can almost pay for Colorado's payroll. :D

Again, bringing the Yankee$ into my specific argument is irrelevant...I was discussing the Red $ox vs Cleveland's and Colorado's payroll and that is it...not the Yankee$,..THAT is something noone will dare talk about...how dare we bring up fact$, man they really do $uck

Well I know you said of the 90's but the post I responded to had the Yankees all over it:

"Oh, I forgot, monster payroll difference$ can only be mentioned and whined about when it comes to the Yankee$ of the late 90's, and the gap show above is similar is not, greater, then the percentage the Yankee$ enjoyed in the late 90's....payroll was mentioned over and over and over then...why not now?

I am not suggesting payroll IS the reason, what I am suggesting is that fans and the media bitch about this over and over again with the Yankee$, why not the Red $ox?"

We're always going to talk about the biggest payroll gaps and the biggest is still between the Yankees and everyone else. When it's Yankees/Red Sox the media doesn't mention that the Yankees spend even more than the Red Sox, no they're just 2 big market teams. I've heard it mentioned plenty of times that the Red Sox are the big market team that spends a lot versus the small market/small payroll Cleveland/Colorado teams. I've had to hear them compared as David vs. Goliath at least 5 times in the Boston/Cleveland series.

You can make the payroll argument if you like, but there is one reason why the Red Sox payroll is so big. The EVIL EMPIRE. :)

But I suppose with the Yankees home, the Red Sox are the budget bullies. Can't say it's unfair. Their payroll is higher than everyone else's except the Evil Empire's.

So what the Yankees do makes the Red $ox decide to spend more....I guess blaiming the Yankee$ is never going to end and is the easy way out versus, heaven forbid, smearing the Red $ox image about $.
