Can you say that again?

Did you see Boston Red Sox owner John Henry with his fingers in his ears during the ninth inning of Game 2 of the World Series? Apparently the Fenway Park faithful were making too much noise for J.H.

What FOX didn’t show was Colorado’s CEO Charlie Monfort. He must have been in another luxury suit with his hands over his eyes.

After his team was swept by the Red Sox in a series they were in for all of about two innings, maybe three, Monfort told reporters in Denver that the Rockies were still the better team.

“You give us 10 games against them, we’ll beat them in six,” he said.
Give the Rockies this: they might have proved Monfort right – if the series were a best-of-11.

Unfortunately, Charlie, after someone loses four times the series is over, and your crew seemed to be in a hurry to go home.

I don’t see how the Rockies would have won the next six if there were a next six, but, hey, you are the owner.
