Fear Factor

Drew1026.gif

The Rockies certainly have their work cut out for them. Clearly the atmosphere at Fenway, coupled with the layoff and some terrific pitching from the Red Sox have put the Rocks in a hole. Can the Rockies claw their way back into the Series? It will be a different game for the Rocks and Red Sox here at Coors Field. I expect the Rockies can get a game or two here and send the Series back to Boston. What do you think?

    Drew,

    I am amazed that you captured the essence of this series in just one cartoon. That is phenomenal work!

    The Rox are beginning to show signs of life, and I think you are right, we will get a game or two at home.

    You might have improved your cartoon if you included Matt Holliday with the "Deer in the Headlights" look as he was picked off at first base.

    I can't believe nerves are one of the biggest things people are pointing to. It certanly did not seem to matter when they were sweeping their way through the National League championship. They've been in uncharted territory for quite some time now. Did the layoff give them too much time to reflect on that?

    Hats of to the Red Sox, they've really stuck it to them, especially on pitching. I'm hoping the bats start to come alive at Coors field, or this series will be over much quicker than it started.

    I think, holding the sox 2-1 was a MAJOR improvement over game 1. I felt the Rockies had chances to win the game and they just didn't capitalize on them (Holiday getting picked off comes to mind).

    They will get 1 or 2 wins in this series at least. I am just glad they didn't get smoked last night.

    Drew, when this is all said and done consider drawing a "Thanks for the wild ride memories" type of tribute for the Rockies rather than a disparaging one that mocks a world series loss. They really did give us a wonderful October and win or lose, they made the Broncos struggles bearable.

    Where have all the bandwagon Rockies "fans" gone to?
    There are suddenly a bunch of crickets in here.

    I wonder if Matt Holliday was still swimming towards first base in his nightmares last night. That image will go down as the defining memory for this franchise.

    I wonder what thoughts were rumbling through that big dome of his when he was walking back to left field.

    "WRECKEDTOBER!!!!!!!!!!!"

    We're still here. There's no clock in baseball, you know.

    The Rox rookies (especially the bullpen) have been playing scared, as Drew's cartoon depicts. That kind of thing could evaporate at home.

    And you have to admit, last night's game proved that the Rox can win at Fenway.

    Yeah, Holiday looked lost on the pick off. But I have a feeling Manny's going to look worse out in left field at Coors. And good luck with Big Papi over at first with that bad wheel. This series isn't over yet.

    Since the Red Sox WON last night's game 2-1, I fail to understand what part of last night's game leads you to believe that the Rockies can win at Fenway.

    Matt Holliday is the MVP.

    Holliday getting picked off will be the defining moment of this franchise? Really? I guess if that's true, then the defining moment of the Red Sox franchise must be when the ball went through Bill's legs at first base in '86. That's still the funniest thing I've ever seen.

    WorkingClassZero you are an idiot! We'll seewhat you're saying after the Sox stumble through three games at altitude. NO ONE expected the Rockies to be in the Series before this season started, and darn few when the end of the regular season approached.

    I don't anticipate a Red Sox sweep, and I'm not sure I anticipate the Rox coming back to win, but I have sure enjoyed the ride.

    I liked how the Rocks were in the game through the entire night. They limited the Sox to only 2 runs. The momentum is clearly on the Sox side but I think if the Rocks win tomorrow that will give them the confidance they need to make the series a good one

    Buckner's play has been replayed to death. Of course it a defining moment in Red Sox history.
    But it was 21 years ago. Buckner doesn't play for the Sox anymore.
    Holliday's blunder (and I'm being kind here) happened LAST NIGHT, and stole a chance for Helton to be the big hero.
    Holliday has now made a bonehead play in the field that should have cost the Rockies the playoff game. His slide at home missed the plate and he was tagged out (though ruled safe by a bought off umpire) and now he gets picked off while in the process of being the potential tying run in Game 2.

    I'm actually waiting for someone to try and tell me that Holliday was also safe on his dive back to first base too.

    Holliday looked really stupid in front of millions of people. He'll never live it down. Enough fans know that Matt is a steroid junkie and now he's proven that being a steroid junkie might let you jack balls out of the park, bu they do not make you a good baserunner or outfielder!

    Hahahahahah!!!!

    You know, I'd think Red Sox fans would be the first to say that it ain't over till it's over. The Sox have given fans everywhere reason to believe even when their team is down three zip. Besides, when is losing the first two games on the road in a seven game series considered the end? The Sox held serve. Now the Rox have to. That's all. Nothing's been decided. The Sox have devastating talent in the first two spots of their rotation. It isn't as strong from here on. On the other hand, I like Fogg's and Cook's chances. They can both shut down even the most powerful of lineups.

    I still believe, damn it!

    Everyone keeps making the assumption that Manny will be a factor at Coors. Well, since the Rockies can't seem to even HIT the ball with any regularity (since game 2 of the NLDS), I don't think that one or two fly balls, assuming the Rockies even make contact, are going to be a difference maker. Lest you all forget, the Red Sox had the bases loaded THREE TIMES yesterday alone. The Rockies never had three RUNNERS on base in the series at once.

    It is very pleasing to see the positive comments from Rockies fans, for the most part. That is the sign of people actually coming around, vs biding time while the Broncos stink up the NFL.

    I don't really think what Holiday did last night is the biggest blunder since Buckner. Not by a mile. Buckners blunder allowed the winning run to score in game 6 and swung momentum to the Mets. The Red Sox already had the momentum and Holiday's out only ended the inning. Don't kid yourself, I am a Rockies fan but Helton was not going to hit him in. Biggest blunder since Buckner?? No WAY.
