The Colorado Rockies won their 19th game out of 20 last night, defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 2 of the NLCS 3-2. It appeared that the Mountains had finally lost their momentum when the Serpents tied the game in the bottom of the 9th, but D-Backs closer Jose Valverde walked in the winning run in the top of the 11th, thus informing us all that the geological process of flat subduction cannot be stopped by a split-finger fastball. 19 out of 20 – wow! Do you realize that the last time the Rockies lost 2 games in a row a gallon of gasoline cost $2.89? And milk didn't even come in gallons back then, you had to buy it by the gill or the firkin. Sliced bread?!? Ha, don't make me laugh.
In ALCS action, Boston pounded C.C. Sabathia and the Cleveland Indians 10-3. Serves that condescending hurler right. Who does he think he is, a Madison Avenue vice president? If the Red Sox can win this series, they can finally avenge their loss in the 1948 one-game playoff that decided the AL pennant. The can also avenge their idea to dress up like Native Americans. It's called the Boston Tea Party people – look it up! -KD
