Fall Classic 2007
This game of baseball is a funny one. If Trevor Hoffman, one of the best relief pitchers in the history of baseball, had a gotten just one more batter out the Rockies would have been watching the post season at home like everybody else. But, as things would happen, the Rockies are now representing the National League in the World Series against the Boston Red Sox.
I Live For This!
I don?t think people realize how impressive it is to win 21 of 22 straight games. You have to play errorless defense, have pin-point location with your pitches, have those line drives hit down the line fall six inches fair instead of six inches foul, get some favorable calls from the umpires, have a bit of luck, and, most importantly, execute the fundamentals of the game.
I want to congratulate Charlie Monfort and his brother, Keli McGregor, Dan O’Dowd, Bill Geivette and the entire Rockies organization on a tremendous season.
People wonder how the Rockies did it, but it?s simple, they executed the fundamentals, and, they never stopped believing in themselves. With every win their confidence grew. They went through the playoffs like Grant went through Richmond. The first step towards success is self-confidence, and the both teams posses that crucial quality.
The Red Sox have been a tremendous powerhouse all year long. They have an incredibly talented roster, and I would like to congratulate John Henry, Larry Lucchino, Theo Epstein and the entire Red Sox organization on an outstanding year.
This is going to be a great display of baseball, and its competitive spirit at its best. I hope all you fans out there have enjoyed the 2007 season as much as I have. This World Series should be a fitting end to another great season.
