well I wa sa little late on this one but its gfame 3 and my redsox are leading 4 - 0 with a 2 to 0 series lead.

I have believed the Red Sox would win every year(offcourse they never do but this year is different)

But I predict the redSox will win the World Series and break the cruse bestowed upon them in 1918

Nobody calls Gaelic, AFL, Hurling or even rugby league a world series.

Bloody Cardinals. Well, I'm not the biggest of baseball fans, but I gotta support my home team. Pitiful base running. Am wondering how we mustered 105 wins this season with these recent performances.

Ah well, well done Boston. Much rather have the Sox than the Yankees anytime.

Nowadays we understand this World Series as World championship but I think that originally it was because these matchs were organised by a newspaper called World News

Cricket is a much better game than baseball. It's more popular world wide and played in more countries.

I wouldn't be too sure about that. All of the Carribean area countries add up really quickly.

Anyways, I wasn't especially happy to see a big market team win the World Series, the Red Sox are much better than the Yankees. Actually, anybody would have been better than the Yankees.

Oh ya, DonBilly is right about the origin of the name "World Series"

Untill this year, there were two. Starting next year, however, the Montreal Expos will be moved to Washington DC leaving only Toronto Blue Jays in Canada.

Yeah baseball is dead in Montreal and as far as I am concerned pro baseball is having a lot of trouble. The players get paid way to much and small market teams cannot compete. (Alex Rodriguez signed a contract worth 252 million) Like he makes almost as much in a season that tyhe whole toronto blue jays team makes its ridiculous.

Offcourse we are now seeing something good happening in baseball (New teams winning) I was getting sick of seeing the Yankees win every year and they haven't won in 3 years.

Baseball is a softer version of rounders with a longer stick.
