Predicting The World Series Outcome

This will be an interesting World Series, and the outcome is pretty much in the hands of God. We have two very religious teams, and you can bet there will be a lot of praying going on.

''Without question, chapel attendance among the Red Sox has been far and away more than any of the major league teams over the last two years," said Vince Nauss, president of Baseball Chapel.

Music filled with obscenities, wildly popular with youth today and in many other clubhouses, is not played. A player will curse occasionally but usually in hushed tones. Quotes from Scripture are posted in the weight room. Chapel service is packed on Sundays. Prayer and fellowship groups each Tuesday are well-attended. It's not unusual for the front office executives to pray together.

What's surprising is that God didn't come through for the Cleveland Indians. This, in spite of the fact that one of their pitchers has special help from above: Paul Byrd: God is My Pitching Coach.

Overall, I think the Rockies will out-pray the Red Sox. I'm predicting a Colorado victory in six games.
