    2008 World Series Discussion

    Game one gets underway a little under an hour from now. Scott Kazmir vs Cole Hamels. That should be an exciting pitching matchup.

    I just turned on the World Series and I see the Tampa Bay Rays.

    Wow.

    No team in the history of the four major pro sports have had the worst record in their sport one year and won the championship the next year. Never. The Rays have a chance to become the first. That puts in perspective how amazing a story this is.

    The Backstreet Boys are looking old - I wasn't sure if it was them or The Four Freshmen (and that's going to date me - but, they were my parents' records).

    The Rays were just playing the greatest song ever made - "The Natural" by Randy Newman. Every time I hear that song I feel like watching the movie.

    I can't believe the Phillies are playing Pat Burrell in left field with the DH rule in effect. I would DH Burrell and put a better glove out there in LF.

    Do they have one who bats RH? Because I could see not wanting to put another LHH in the lineup if they don't.
