I’m boycotting the real World Series, but the one with the Cubs VS. Red Sox taking
place in an alternate universe has been really entertaining. Currently
the Cubs are up three games to two, but the series is going back to
You can read about games 1-2 here and
3-4-5 here. It’s
really good stuff. Here are some highlights:
Little also announced that despite pitching
all 15 innings Thursday night in New York, Pedro Martinez will be his Game 1 starter
against the Cubs. "He's our ace," Little explained. "He's the best guy I have and
I think he has enough gas left in his tank."
Pedro grabbed the Cubs batboy by the head and
tossed him into the stands…” Don
Zimmer is 72 and Darren Baker is four," Pedro said. "So the average age of the guys
I'm fighting is a perfectly respectable 38."
Manny Ramirez made World Series history by
running out a ground ball for the first time in his career.
Pedro finally was knocked out of the game.
He'd pitched the first 37 innings of the series; but on his way to the mound to pitch
the eighth, Randall Simon hit him over the head with a bat while
ran past the Cubs dugout. "I thought he was part of the sausage race," Simon explained.
I can’t wait to hear what happens in the final two games. Yes,
I’m this depressed the Red Sox lost in real life.
