Wednesday Morning Quarterback: The League Championship Series
Oct 8th, 2008 by Dan

You’ve probably heard the saying that hindsight is 20/20 on Monday morning, so just imagine how well I can call ’em two days later on Wednesday. That’s right, it’s time for Wednesday Morning Quarterback, your weekly sports round-up.

So it seems that I was half wrong about at least the NLCS, since the Cubs managed to not save their collapse for maximal disappointment. Instead we have the Philadelphia Phillies going up against the Los Angeles Dodgers. This one is a bit tougher of a prediction. It’s going to be a tough and exciting series, but I hope the Phillies lose for the drama.

The big, main event for me is the Red Sox/Rays series. ESPN is already hyping the rivalry between the Rays and Sox as the most exciting in current baseball, citing several different events: sliding into second spikes first, beaning Coco Crisp, and the fight that followed the beaning. One thing can’t be debated though, this will be a rough, close, well-played series that will make for absolutely stupendous baseball. None of the opening pitchers have been announced yet for the series, but we will definitely see some good matchups.

I can’t wait.
