I hate to be the kind of guy who upsets anybody's fond hopes, but this is one of those times when a sports-writer just has to be brave.
The Sox won't win a single game. I just can't see it in the cards.
I know all the arguments--that the Sox have more soul, that the Cardinals won't be up for the game, and all that sort of thing. But soul doesn't pay bills, and if you ask me, all those people who try to mix up psychology and sports are just full of baloney. Just look at the way Green Bay won the Super Bowl game. And Dick Williams ain't no Vince Lombardi, whatever that means.
