So Much For Rocktober

In the end, it came down to John Papelbon pitching to Seth Smith. Not names for the ages, I don’t think, but the Red Sox’s pitching was just too much for the Rockies, who got themselves swept in the Series. So I’d better enjoy using the phrase “Rocktober” while I can, because some playoff-happy executives in Denver decided that they would trademark that phrase, so beloved of classic rock radio stations nationwide.
