Matt Holliday and the Rockies weren't Arminius and his Germanic tribes to Manny Ramirez and the Red Sox' Romans at Teutoberg Forest in game one of the series. After last night, someone on this team needs to be General McAuliffe and tell the Red Sox, "NUTS!" Give up and let the Red Sox win the next two? "NUTS!" Gabe's got it right, Josh Fogg is the guy we want on the mound Saturday. Again, to the Red Sox, I say, "NUTS!"
Had the Rockies been up by two games, I'd have referenced a rather misguided paper from 1989 on the the end of history; however, since the fall of communism wasn't the end of history as we know it, neither would a Rockies World Series victory be the end of baseball history as we know it.
