Disrespecting Giants-Rockies Huge Series
There is a big, big, big series going on this weekend and it has nothing to do with Fenway Park. Yes, pinstripes will be involved, but they aren't on the iconic Yankees duds.
It's Giants-Rockies time!
San Francisco visits Colorado in a pivotal series involving the top two teams in the National League wild card race. So, of course, ESPN and Fox have to keep riding that Sox/Yanks series instead. After all, the Yankees only have a 7.5 game lead over the Red Sox in the AL East standings.
It's just more sexier. People forget that the Colorado Rockies are one of the hottest teams in the league over the past few months. The Giants are a bit of an eyesore since they've scored the second-least amount of runs in baseball and rely on an insane staff of pitchers (they are easily ahead of everyone in runs allowed). Still, if I was a fan of the Dodgers, Phillies or Cardinals ... I'd be scared to death if the Giants got into the postseason. I'd also be scared to death the have to play in Colorado in late October.
