    A plea to two managers

    This is an open plea to Charlie Manuel and Terry Francona:

    If, by some chance, your teams happen to oppose each other in the World Series (which I realize is a statistical long shot), please do us soft-tossing old guys with shredded labrums a favor. Pitch Jamie Moyer and Tim Wakefield against each other in a World Series game.

    Tito, I know your going to start Beckett and Dice-K in the first two games if you make it that far. Charlie, you'll run out Cole Hamels in the first game. And I know you'll be tempted to start Moyer second. Don't do it, please. Start Joe Blanton, start Brett Myers, start J.A. Happ if you have to, but please, let us get to a third game with a Moyer-Wakefield matchup.

    We want to see a World Series game with a 75 mph speed limit.

    Please.

    The Red Sox-Phillies World Series will never happen? No, probably not. The matchup will never happen? No, probably not, even if the World Series did.

    Oh, but it would be incredible if it did.

    The only way that pitching match-up happens is if game three went to 14 innings.

    Honestly, I think the reason it wouldn't is because Moyer is the Phillies' number 2 right now, with the problems Myers has been having. And yeah, I know Wakefield isn't the Sox number 3, they'd start Beckett, Dice-K, and Lester first, and Wakefield maybe 4.

    Actually word is Lester is going into the ALCS as the #2 guy .. Beckett- Lester-DiceK.

    Also if it gets that far it will depend on if a series goes 7 game, messing with rotations ...

    It doesnt matter who is considered #1, #2, etc. Depends on where the rotation is when the WS starts. As a Sox fan, I dont especially want to see Wakefield starting against anyone.

    I really want to see this, if for no other reason than the prospect of 607 innings where every comment isn't going to be about "Did you SEE the speed on that heater?'
