This has been a weird playoff year. The umps after being praised last year were horrible. Absolutely horrible. I just had no desire whatsoever to watch anymore after the Angels series.
Bad calls don't make for good ratings. And excellent baseball is 7 game series not a sweep. This was a mismatch.
But when the Angels won it in 02 and had the worst ratings ever I could care less because it felt so good just to win. So congrats Sox fans.
It's not the quantity but the quality, and to give credit where it is due, all the teams the Sox played were quality teams and made some great plays. There were some spectacular pitching efforts, some bad calls, some lucky breaks. But any one of those games could have gone the other way, so to say just because they won in four the other team was outmatched is simply wrong. The Angels are a great team, obviously the Red Sox are, and the Astros played very tough ball for those four games, so I applaud them as well.
