again, just like last year, the only team i'm semi-rooting for will be the houston astros, just because it would be nice to see a guy from my hometown (craig biggio) win the world series.

and now that the red sox finally won the series last year, i really could care less if they win it again.

he's a douche.

when one has a second half like the white sox did, he probably shouldn't go around talking about someone else choking.
While Ozzie is a total nut job, I highly doubt he'll be fired at seasons end.

don't be so sure... he's said some pretty wacky stuff, and reinsdorf has certainly canned people for less...

There has been really little call for Ozzie to be fired here. Does he tinker too much with the line-up? yes. Is he thin skinned? yes. IMO there is much more of an argument for Dusty to be fired. (so now it's the wind's fault they didn't win games at home? ) I don't think it'll be the stuff he says that'll get him fired.

Anyway, the media here has been billing this round as the "Battle of the Soxes" That just sounds wrong to me. Stupid media.

What a joke that was. How the Yankees can say things like that is beyond me. What a bunch of whiners.

if ozzie isn't fired for completely losing his team down the stretch, while at the same time acting like a complete and utter fool, embarassing himself and the franchise... then he will most certainly be on a very short leash come next season. if he survives this offseason, and they get off to a rough start next year, he'll be gone very quickly.

From what I've heard the ring leader of the complaining was some guy named Alex Rodriguez...how shocking is that?

yea he thought buck was trying to get back at him or something.

i always liked a-rod before he came to the yanks. was a great player and seemed like an equally great guy.

but being able to see him every day, he really does whine a lot for a guy making 25 million a year.

still a great great player, though.

I find it odd that you'd emphasize defense here. If keeping runs off the board is a combination of pitching and defense, I'd say defense is 10% of the job, at most.

Page 2 agrees with me.

those stats only cover the last 10 years. If you give the opposing teams more chances at the bat, you will probably lose. On top of that the pitching of some teams can't overcome errors consistently.

Well, with the increased offensive firepower over the last 10 years, I think those are the stats that are more relevant.

These days, I think you're much more likely to see games decided by bad walks or home runs than by errors, failed double plays, stolen bases, etc. Just as a start, the average number of walks per game is way more than the average number of errors per game.

The Red Sox played terrible defense in Games 1 + 2 of the world series last year, something like 6 errors and how did things turn out for them?
