Game prediction: Red Sox romp

Having been on the record as saying I was rooting for a Rockies-Indians World Series, this is tough for me to write, but here's what I think will happen:

The game will go scoreless for a few frames before the Sox break it open with four runs, knocking out Jake "BABIP Help Him" Westbrook. Dice-K Matsuzaka will pitch into the 7th, where he'll give up two cheap singles and a walk and get replaced by Mike Timlin. Timlin will allow two inherited runners to score but get out of the inning with no further damage.

The Red Sox will tack on another two or three runs in the late innings, and Okajima and the dancing wonder Papelbon will wrap it up to send Boston to the World Series. Final score, 7-2, give or take a couple.

POSTSCRIPT: The Rockies are in Time Magazine again, like they were in 1993. That's a long time between Time appearances.
