Always bet on Boston

Regular readers of this blog know I'm a die-hard Angels fan - which, by extension, means I hate the Red Sox - but the Boys from Beantown never cease to amaze me.

Down 7-0 in the seventh inning, and facing playoff elimination with a loss, the Sox mounted a comeback for the ages Thursday night to beat the Rays 8-7 in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Now the series moves back to Tampa Bay, where it should be easy enough for the home team to win just one of two games and clinch its first-ever American League pennant.

But it won't happen. Ortiz, Youkilis, Pedroia, Drew and the rest of the defending champions will win Games 6 and 7 and advance to their third World Series in five years.

I predicted this two entries ago ("Remember this, Rays"), and I'm even more sure of it now.

The Red Sox are, quite simply, unstoppable.
