Aces high in Boston

Note to Colorado: If Boston advances to the World Series, fear the Red Sox.

Even destiny itself would struggle against Boston's twin aces of Josh Beckett and Curt Schilling.

With the American League winner holding home-field advantage, it certainly would be tough to fathom Colorado reprising its summer success at a raucous Fenway Park against the best postseason pitcher older than 35 (Schilling) and probably the best one going of any age (Beckett).

Yes, the Rockies have beat up on some good starters during their 21-1 run (Jake Peavy, Brad Penny, Brandon Webb), but, if they face Schilling circa Game 6, after Beckett at Fenway, the odds-on favorite would be Colorado heading back to Coors Field in an 0-2 hole.
