Look! The Rockies Are In The Big Show!

A little over a week ago I asked if you were looking yet. If you weren't, you know now that you have no choice but to check out the Colorado Rockies. Going undefeated in the postseason has earned them a trip to the 2007 World Series.

Veteran Todd Helton (above) celebrated after he caught the final out of the game, but guys like Matt Holliday and Seth Smith might have been too numb with shock to do the same. Holliday seemed almost embarrased to receive his NLCS MVP. Smith, the college back-up to Giants QB Eli Manning, had no RBI's all season but had two big ones last night. All the guys on this team are the stars of the postseason. I said it before and I'll keep saying it: Rock On!

In other postseason news: The Cleveland Indians have the edge in the ALCS right now, thanks, in part, to that ornery kvetch , Kenny Lofton. Lofton played head games with Daisuke Matsuzaka, successfully taking him out of his pitching rhythm and successfully taking a Dice-K pitch out of the ballpark. If you didn't understand before why teams continue to want Lofton for their pennant runs, you do now.

I saw them play the Yanks at Coors in June. While that series hurt, the Rockies looked incredibly good...and that was 4 months ago.
