Game chat: The white-hot Rockies travel to Boston to take on the favored Red Sox tonight in Game 1 of the World Series. The Sox hand the ball to 2003 World Series MVP Josh Beckett, who enters the night with a sub-2 ERA in nine post-season appearances. For Colorado, left-hander Jeff Francis toes the rubber having won both his post-season starts. The Red Sox are the favorites in Vegas and in every nerdy statistical simulation I've seen, however the Rockies have been nearly perfect for over a month. Action gets underway around 8:35 p.m. ET on Fox, with Beckett and the Sox as heavy favorites.
