On the Rocks (World Series Game 2 Postgame Notes)

At least this is what a World Series game is supposed to look like--a close, low-scoring, one run affair...

...but it certainly did not feel that way.

I don't know about you, but I had to check my TV constantly to see that the game was still only at 2-1; the way Boston pitched and reached base, I thought it was 4-1 or 5-1.

So it seems the Colorado pitching staff woke up today, and decided to stop playing zombie...and if only the offense could do that as well!

Matt Holliday might be the National League MVP, but he did the most un-MVPish thing possible when he got picked off in the eighth inning, killing a potential rally. Sure there were two outs, but if I learned one thing this postseason, it's that you can never rest easy until the third out is made.

Curt Schilling did one of those better-as-the-game-goes-on performances, which is never any fun for the opposing team, because then you realize that you had a huge opportunity (like the first) and you missed.

Still, going back to Coor's Field will be good for Colorado. Will they win the World Series? Never say never, but they have their work cut out for them.

I wonder if a World Series game has ever been snowed out...
