So, those "we haven’t won a World Series in over 70 years" Red Sox went and won another one. I fell in love with the 2004 Red Sox team, and I especially wanted them to beat the Cardinals after the NLCS. But this year, I really hoped that the Rockies would keep up their winning ways, since this year’s Red Sox team was…eh. I think I like Pedroia, and I do like Mike Lowell, but other than that, I could care less. Oh well though, it’s over now.
As for the Houston off-season…I don’t really want to talk about it. Well, actually, I do, because if I didn’t, then I wouldn’t be over here. I can’t understand the trade for Michael Bourn. What is Josh Anderson, chopped liver? Do we really think that we’re going to get a premier starting pitcher with him as trade bait? What are we going to do with him if we don’t trade him? Houston is known for letting their young prospects go to waste, and this might be another prime example.
On a side note, I am really going to miss Brad Lidge, and I am REALLY REALLY going to miss Eric Bruntlett. We are losing our Ivy League players right and left. I am also sad about losing Eric Munson earlier in the off-season. I don’t understand how Quintero is that much better than Munce.
Congrats to Carlos Lee winning the Silver Slugger award…at least something good came out of this season. He really did have a great offensive year.
