Is the World Serious boring you? Is there a lack of juice or excitement in watching the Yanks and Marlins duke it out? Well perhaps that will all change as the Serious shifts to Florida tonight. Mike Mussina starts against the Marlins ace, Josh Beckett. This could be a classic pitching duel, and a great game tonight could help make this a terrific Serious yet. Beckett was lights out in his last two appearances, and ain't ascared of nobody. Mike Mussina was brilliant in a relief stint in Game 7 against Boston and is looking for his first win in the 2003 post season.
I haven't been one for making predictions, but once again, I feel very good about the Yankees chances with Mussina tonight.
In other news, Jason Giambi is in the headlines after he was subpoenaed to testify before "a San Francisco grand jury that's investigating Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, or BALCO, a company which prescribes nutritional supplements and is now fighting charges that it also may be dabbling in tetrahydrohestrinone, a designer steriod." Giambi appeared unfazed by the news. I don't know much about the case, so I will reserve comment. Hopefully, Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus, will enlighten us in the coming weeks.
