I don't consider the Red Sox' sweep of the Cardinals anticlimactic. It's actually a beautiful thing to watch one team totally dominate another over the course of four games.

Unless, of course, you're the team being swept. Which brings me to an something I'm not sure everyone will pick up on: This will be the consecutive World Series in which a Tony LaRussa-managed team has gone down in four games. The last time was when LaRussa managed the A's in the 1990 Series. The A's came into that Series very cocky, talking about how they were going to sweep the Reds, and ended up getting swept themselves. God, I felt good after that.

Now we can all get some rest and focus on football.
