Wouldn't it be funny/ironic (like raaaaiiiiin on your wedding day, a free riiiiiide when you've already paid) if we found out the Astros bullpen brethren all placed huge wagers on the Chisox and then cleverly threw the series.

Congrats to the White Sox and their fans, its been a long drought, enjoy the fruits of victory.

It amazes me that no one here wants to give the White Sox any credit.

They're like the 2002-2005 Patriots to me, not the 1996 Bulls. You know what I'm talking about.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Since when did anyone ever say it was okay to root for the Yankees???

Anyway, it's cool. Be haters. It won't bother me if/when they win.
congrats to the city of CHITOWN, one of my favorite cities.
sweep the sox, pitch the Angels to the side, now they're about to homer their way past the Astros.
to quote the BOSS; its been a long time coming....

Time for a parade...........

No matter how many times the White Sox win, people will still hate them like crazy and say that they ruined baseball.

Hey...actually, that's pretty awesome.

I have never been so

It's just so incredible that a team I have been following and rooting for all my life has won something

I will never forget this

It's too bad the series didn't last longer -- each game was close (4 wins by 6 runs total), and it would have been interesting to see what would have happened. ((Does Clemens pitch Game 5, or does Andy Pettitte have to go on short rest?)

Congratulations to Chicago; there can be no doubt that they were the best team this year. They won with the long ball, small ball, pitching and defense.

Although, I'm NOT a baseball fan ...
I congratulate the Chicago White Sox for a World Series Victory that they definitely deserved ...
as they played amazingly well enough to "sweep" the Houston Astros from winning even 1 game.

Nicely done Chicago. Enjoy the parade and everything that goes along with winning the World Series.

Does anyone else think that Brad Lidge may never be the same pitcher after this post-season? He had a real rough go of things after game 5 against the Cards and bad postseasons have derailed a lot of pitchers' careers - See Donnie Moore, Byung-Hyun Kim, Rick Ankiel.
