I'm Smarter Than John Kruk & Eric Young Put Together
With the AL/NL Division Series behind us – and with me sporting the only 4-0 first round playoff pickery score in America! – your intrepid Bootleg Guy sets his sights on the Championship Series. So, what'd I say back in March?
ALCS: Red Sox over Indians
NLCS: Mets over Diamondbacks
Get on board my gravy train, gamblers! I'll even bring the biscuits. Aaron's sticking with the Sox (in six) over an impressive Indians squad. Favorite Storyline: Can Grady Sizemore replace Derek Jeter as America's favorite bi-racial ballplayer? Answer: not with hair so knotty and an 1870s freed-slave name like "Grady".
Oh, and thanks again, Tom Glavine, for ruining what would've been an unprecedented run of prognostication on my part. It's the Rockies vs. the D'Backs in the NLCS and me thinks Colorado's clock won't strike midnight any time soon. Rockies in six.
