So sad for the Rockies. Game one sucked, Game two was total anxiety, Game three looked like it was a possibility, glad I don't have game 5 tickets. I am proud that they made it so far, so fast........who knows what tonight will bring.

Yeh, it is so sad !!

For a few seconds there last night, I was concerned but quickly came back to reality, knowing that despite the Rockies getting into the game, the Sox were still ahead! My faith never faultered.

The Sox have been phenomenal!!! Lots of history in the making here!!! Enjoy tonights game!

And don't forget to go to Taco Bell on Tuesday (between 2-4) for your free taco!

It is history in the making for sure. The Colorado Rockies - 17 years old against the Red Sox - 104 years old. Your Curse of the Bambino years lasted longer than the Rockies have even been a team (almost 5 times longer).
Yep the Rockies are great, after 104 years I guess it would be expected that the Red Sox might win another series.

Yeh...the Curse was a long time!! But don't forget that the Sox won some before then (and came close some other times).

The Rockies had a great run and into the wild card. A tremendous effort. A good team but not solid, great. Some really good players...but all have to be in top form, etc., for it to be a great team and great enough to win a WS. The Red Sox were better than the Rockies at every level. Better bullpen, better offense, defense, etc. Great rookies!!!

The Red Sox had it all together...a great team and even better than the 2004 WS team (stats).

I saw the game before going to sleep last night. Congrats to your team.

As for the Rockies,they're playing reminded me of the Orlando magic when they went to the NBA Finals for the first time in 2005. They were swept in 4 games as well!

Maybe they'll be more ready for it next time.

THE CANADIAN PRESS
Matt Stairs



Stairs inks $3.25M deal with Jays

N.B. slugger signs two-year deal to stay in Toronto


THE CANADIAN PRESS Published Saturday November 3rd, 2007
Appeared on page C1

TORONTO - His first multi-year deal in nearly a decade, a prominent role with the 2008 Toronto Blue Jays and the chance to finish out his career in Canada was pretty much all Matt Stairs could have asked for in his latest contract.

One request the Fredericton native didn't make was that the US$3.25 million, two-year agreement he signed Friday be paid in Canadian dollars rather than the American greenback.
"I suppose I should have with the Canadian money being higher now," the 39-year-old quipped on a conference call from his home in Bangor, Maine.
"Nah, I'm just glad it's over with, glad the talks are done and now we can get under way with winning some games up in Toronto again."
The Blue Jays feel the same way after aggressively working to get Stairs back in tow to share left field duties with Reed Johnson, play a little first base when needed and offer a big stick off the bench the rest of the time.
There was at least one other team seriously interested in the veteran slugger, but they never stood a chance. His only other multi-year deal was a $5.275-million, two-year contract covering 1999 and 2000 with the Oakland Athletics.
He's signed seven one-year deals since.
"Other deals had to be just unbelievable for me not to return to Toronto," said Stairs. "And with Toronto offering me a two-year deal, it's hard to say no."
Stairs' first season with the Blue Jays was one to remember as he hit .289 with 21 homers and 64 RBIs in 125 games. He came up north on an $850,000, contract to be the team's fourth outfielder last December, but became an integral part of the club as injuries to several regulars mounted.
He ended up getting 357 at-bats, far more than expected, and showed he had plenty more left in him than simply being a bat off the bench.
That's why Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi didn't mind giving Stairs a front-loaded contract. He'll make $2.25 million in 2008 and $1 million in 2009, when he's expected to become a role player and Adam Lind is projected to take over left field.
"Matt knows he's going play, probably the same amount of at-bats he had this year, which would be great for us," said Ricciardi. "We want to have the same kind of guy back and probably not give him more at-bats.
"I think right around 250 to 350, 400, 450 tops, with him and Reed out there I think we're pretty solid."
