Chicago is up 2-0. Everything is going according to plan. We have them right where we want them.

In all seriousness, I'm disappointed with the way the Red Sox batted in innings 4-7. They abandoned all semblance of plate discipline once they went up 4-0.

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.

Defense, extra outs, blah blah blah. Tony Graffanino wasn't the one who served up the gopher ball.

Game 1 definitely wasn't decided by poor or excellent defense.

Also, Bill Buckner must be thrilled to know that baseball announcers and writers have no plans to stop picking on him.

Boston has a good chance to pull even back at Fenway with Wakefield and Schilling, setting up a clinching game 5 with either Clement or Brandon Arroyo. I will now bathe in sulfuric acid.

Boston is down 0-2, but as much as I despise them, they can come back. They did it two years ago against the A's., down 0-2 and won in three straight.

If the Yanks win the World Series, it would really make up for last year's collosal collapse.

I hope Wang was like Moose last night. Angels always seem to have the Yanks' number, though. Still can't get over 2002.


Sincerely,

diehard Yankee fan.

You're right; anything can happen...if it weren't for Garrett Anderson playing in 5 steps. coupled with his bad legs and the fact that Juan Rivera should have been in left field last night, that was a 2-1 Angel win....JMO.

I was at that game. This is just one reason why I've been banished from Sox park during the playoffs.

If Chicago goes through Boston, I'll be pulling for the Pale Hose the rest of the way.

First 1918, then 1917, I'll actually be enjoying that.

How lonely will Cubs fans be? All 3 teams fans have always kinda been grouped together as long suffering.

The Cubs will be all that's left.

Cubs fans will cherish it...like Wrigley field!

I am cheering for the Angels! Despite my feelings for the White Sox...I wouldn't mind seeing the Pale's versus the Angels.

Good answer!

See Yankee fans, you could learn from this. If your team didn't win the WS every 4 years, would you still be a fan?

Nope.

I'm happy if a Japanese player does well, good on Iguchi.

If Mark Bellhorn could have hit his weight rather than strike out a number of times equal to double his weight, the Sox (rojo) wouldn't have traded for Gaffanino, and the series would be tied.
Oh well. There's always tomorrow. (Better say that while I still can)
