  1. QUOTE (SoxFan562004 @ Oct 3, 2008 -> 08:32 AM) I don't think there's anything wrong with having Javy as 4 or 5. He will eat innings and, during the regular season, give you at least a 50/50 shot at winning. He costs a lot of money, but the Sox are a big payroll team and it's a done deal anyway, so try and get some value out of it I'm a Javy hater (because I foolishly keep expecting so much more from him), but I'm also good with keeping him as an expensive 4 or 5. The White Sox know that he is not a top of the rotation guy, but were forced by circumstances to pitch him in Game 1. Sure he crapped back the lead, but he kept us in the game. Unfortunately, that's all you can hope for from the guy, or for that matter, any 4 or 5.
  2. Cubs probably would have come back and won it but for that bad third strike call.
  3. QUOTE (Flash Tizzle @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 10:32 PM) Ron Darling sounds a bit like James Woods. I read the same thing here yesterday.
  4. I guess "Saito" is Korean for "Paniagua."
  5. Geez, that Frank C as McCain commercial was the worst one yet, and I didn't think that was possible.
  6. Lots of crowd shots of hot blue hairs tonight!
  7. QUOTE (fathom @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 10:20 PM) I absolutely, positively support this statement. For my money, the Tuesday game was our World Series. +1

    Who won the VP Debate?

    I only saw the latter half, but Biden was clearly stronger. I've heard Palin was better early on, but based on what I saw, I can't imagine even the most diehard McCain supporter being proud of how she did. I was far more impressed with her convention performance than by what I saw tonite.

    QUOTE (Soxbadger @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 08:14 PM) Athomeboy, McClellan was a Civil War General. Thats how I caught it because I know much more about US history than I do about current US foreign policy. She probably got it confused because shes been spending so much time with all those teachers in her life. I have a feeling he whiffed on the name too, but was smart enough not to venture a guess.

    Chicago @ Tampa Bay - ALDS Game 1

    QUOTE (JoeCredeYes @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 03:25 PM) Sounds like it was a few guys, possibly Crede also? Not sure. I read earlier this week that Joe had scheduled an appointment with his back doctor for today. Even if he's with them now, that's no way to show confidence in your teammates.

    Chicago @ Tampa Bay - ALDS Game 1

    QUOTE (Soxbadger @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 03:10 PM) Javy is the Sox 4th starter, due to having to play the last few weeks we could not set the rotation. Badger has a point. Running out our worst starter in Game 1 is the price we have to pay for having dicked around the last few weeks. It still sucks though, as does Javy.
  13. Normally, streaming audio of Sox radio broadcasts is "blacked out" on the WSCR website. However, I heard that ESPN 1000 will be airing the national playoff broadcasts locally. Does anyone know if you can listen to the latter on the web without purchasing mlb audio or anything like that? I have crappy AM radio reception at work.

    Listening to Playoff Games On-Line

    Dumb question, I guess. Discovered the answer is "no."

    What is your Current State?

    Cool like Fonzie. To me, everything from this point on is absolute gravy. Although I was always hopeful, I really didn't expect us to be here. Not in the Spring, not after Quentin and Contreras went down, not after the Sweep, and not after we got shelled on Friday and Saturday while the Twinkies lost. We manned up and won a tough race and are back in the playoffs 3 years after winning it all. That's good enough for me. But I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.

    When did you start feeling old?

    I think I'm probably one of the older posters on here so I don't know if a lot of you can identify with this yet, but I definitely felt old when I realized that all of the players on the professional teams I followed were significantly younger. You grow up idolizing and looking up to your sports heroes as gods, and then one day it hits you that all of them (to use an Ozzie-ism) are "kids." Its a little depressing to think that John Danks was an infant when I was in college.

    QUOTE (beautox @ Oct 2, 2008 -> 06:58 AM) lets go on a nice 11-0 streak Let's make that 14-0 since we're on a 3 gamer already.

    QUOTE (EvilJester99 @ Oct 1, 2008 -> 04:21 PM) I thought it was awesome and it looked great on TV. I just thought it was interesting the Sox came out in the white unis...I expected they would have had the black jerseys. The Black ones hadn't been working too well lately, and they'd won the last two games wearing White. I'd have been seriously pissed if they'd went back to Black just to match the theme. Like Crash said, "Never f*** with a winning streak."
  19. I'd guess "Yes," given the way Danks was dealing and the importance of one run at that point. Besides, although Anderson's arm is strong, it isn't always the most accurate.

    Home Field Advantage?

    Correct. A wild card winner will always be trumped by a division winner, even one with an inferior record. The wild card can only have home field advantage in the World Series.
