White Boy Also Does Baseball

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim were put on this earth for 1 reason and 1 reason only, to piss off Yankee fans. They beat up on our team and can't beat the team we hate the most. As such us bitter Yankee fans have no choice but to hitch our wagon to Joe Madden's managerial star. The problem is I just can't see this ending well.

Boston has not lost a playoff series as the Pedroia Youk Redsox. Francona is perfefct in LCS and WS play. Boston has a sick big 3 rotation of Beckett, Dice K and Lester. Boston has all of the intanginles. Tampa is truly mlbs feel good story of the year. Any Met fan and/or Yankee hater who hates our team because of its big spending ways is a complete hypocrite if they root for the 120 million dollar Sox over the 40 million dollar D-rays.

Tampa has a great young big 3 of its own boisting a triumverate of Garza, Mr. Met and James Shield. Its lineup is not scary on paper but has a knack for the big hit. The problem is, Tampa is going up against the late 90s Yankees with a better starting staff (if also having a slightly worse closer). I am rooting like crazy for the small market Rays against the Goliath Sox but its not gonna happen.

THE PICK: Boston in 6
