The official 2005 World Series thread
 
Homer: Please please please, I want to make the team. Clemens. did I make the team?
Roger: You sure did!
Homer: I did! Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo! In your face, Strawberry!
Roger: Wait a minute, are you Ken Griffey Jr.?
Homer: No.
Roger: Sorry. Didn't mean to get your hopes up.

That was one helluva bigass flag!!!

Clemens and Oswalt will determine this series, if they rock, Houston can win otherwise it looks good for Chicago.

One thing going for both teams, moreso Houston is the emotional motivation to win a World Series for their veterans like Biggio and Bagwell. White Sox has Frank Thomas too but I think the Killer B's are more connected to the Astros. This can push players to reach new heights in their performances. It worked for the Jays in 92' and 93' with Winfield and Molitor.

Hooray for a national anthem singer who doesn't suck (Josh Groban).

I kind of wondered about putting Jeff Bagwell in over Chris Burke -- this surely was done for sentimental reasons.

But Bagwell got hit with a pitch, so he's done something positive, I guess.

Ok...any updates? Anything worth talking about?

With Cantrera and Clemens pitching, the score is 3-3, top of the third. Whoda thunk it?

Great game so far! Clemens is hurting too.

Clemens is out. (As Fox left the top of the 3rd inning, a reliever was jogging out from the bullpen).

Heh this topic could be a thread of its own!

Anybody else think Chris Burke should have pinch-hit for Bagwell instead of pinch-running for Lance Berkman?

Bagwell was completely overmatched by Bobby Jenks; Chris Burke would have been slightly less overmatched.

And pulling out your best hitter for a pinch runner when down 1 run is pretty dumb -- if you tie the game, you're going to need him later on.

Top of the 8th for Houston was an embarrassment and could have set the tone for the series. You get first and third with none out and then have the side strike out. You don't deserve to win the World Series when you play like that. Give credit to the White Sox bullpen too but pretty sad performance for the bats.

game 1 was baisicly pitched by wendy(sp) rodriguez, and the white sox couldn't put the astros away, eeking out a 2 run victory.

i think this bodes well for pettite and oswalt.

So many haters here. :D
The weather is shit here today. Freeeezing. I was listening to the radio this morning and they said Oswalts' _______________ was bothering him. I wasn't thinking clearly at the time. Anyone know what's/has been bothering oswalt?

trevster2k 10-23-2005 07:56 PM

I can't believe Biggio dropped that ball. Someone's team doesn't want to win the World Series.:wink:
