YES! DIVISION CHAMPS!

He is playing exactly as he should be playing as a late inning defensive substitute. He plays that role so well. I don't think you'll find anyone who says he shouldn't have that role.

Danks, Jenks, Thome and a little BA...

I can't believe I actually kind of called it!!!!

I posted earlier this week that I'd love to see for the last out either Alexei to flip a routine grounder to 1st while flipping the bird to the Twins or BA laying out for a routine fly ball to finish it off. Now that wasn't necessarily routine, but that's close enough for me!!!!:bandance::bandance::bandance:

It won't bother me as much if they lose. If the Cubs don't win it all it will be a bigger failure. It's nice to see the Sox didn't fall off the planet after the WS.

Did you see Ozzie frantically waving the outfield in right before Casilla's AB?

Then Alexei dumps the water cooler on BA during his interview. :D:

First 1-0 win for the Sox this season; Fifth 1-0 loss for the Twins this season, most in MLB.

I apologize to the White Sox for losing faith. This team has really shown me something in the last 3 games. Buehrle, who turned the season around, Floyd, and Danks are amazing. Great pitching, game-saving plays from Griffey, Pierzynski, and Anderson. What a great game, what a great win. I have a feeling the Sox may have finally peaked at just the right time.

Unless the Scrubs get swept (or sweep :o:), either Sox fans or Scrubs fans may get the shaft on Sunday. Game 3 for us, game 4 (if necessary) for them. Bears game at 12 CST. Based on tomorrow's schedule, if there is a need for 3 games (Phils - Brew Crew would need to have a sweep too), there may be one at 12 CST. God I hope it's them. :D:

Grandma: You know, when I was nineteen, Grandpa took me on a roller coaster.

Gil: What a great story.

Grandma: I always wanted to go again. You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it.

Adversity makes this victory so much sweeter. Many gave up on the Sox after Thursday night and Saturday night. To me this makes up for all those near misses getting into the post-season, especially 1967 and 1964. They won in 1967 fashion with good pitching, good defense and one run victories. Hats off to the Twins (and Indians and Tigers, and KC for the big assist) for making it interesting and scary for the Sox and making us appreciate victory so much more and preparing us for the tough battles ahead.

I have to say, the game thread was respectable. Everyone was pretty much upbeat.

John Danks pitched the game of his life.

Griffey acquisition may have been worth it for that throw.

AJ shows us why he is still a great catcher.

Thome proves that he can be clutch when he needs to be.

As I told my Dad on the phone, this one win, these 3 games make up for 2 months of frustration. I'll be on cloud nine for the next two days, but I don't want to stop here!

Thanks White Sox!

TDog
09-30-2008, 10:53 PM
This was as close to a perfect game as the White Sox have played all season. The offense wasn't there, but the pitching was incredible. Wise failed to cut off a hit that went to the wall for a leadoff double, but the pitching and defense worked around it. The Sox made every play, from the line drive hit to Uribe by the second hitter in the game that turned into an easy doubleplay, to the doubleplay turned by Ramirez, the Sox sucked up everything on the infield. The defensive replacements played defense in the ninth -- 1-2-3. Anderson punctuates the win with a great catch. Imagine the Twins hearts being broken by centerfield defense. Didn't see that coming six days ago.

This is the John Danks I was waiting for all year. Eight innings of shutout ball, pitching on short rest. It figured to be a pitchers' night, and the Twins may have been tight, but that doesn't change the fact that Danks in the biggest game of his career, on short rest, pitched eight shutout innings for the first time in his major league career. I was impressed when he pitched seven shutout innings in Kansas City in a game the Sox needed to win. Tonight was special.

With all this team has been through, with the injuries and the controversies. This feels good. I've pointed out a couple of times that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. The Sox looked strong tonight. But I never stopped loving this team.

And for all of you who posted that the Sox didn't want to win, well, you be gettin' it wrong.

For the first time this decade the Sox beat the Twins in a meaningful game (about damn time don't ya think!)

Seriously that begins to change the mental outlook for next season a tad.

I didn't think they could pull it off but you have to give them major props for doing so when they absolutely had to.

Congratulations to them and the organization. (Wouldn't it be funny if they lasted longer then the Cubs?)

As far as I'm concerned anything they can do from this point on is gravy.

Ladies and gentleman, U.S.Cellular presents, your 2008 Central Division Champion, Chicago White Sox!

Pitching and defense kept them in this one until they could get the run.

Then Alexei dumps the water cooler on BA during his interview. :D:

What a crazy week it has been. Unbelievable. Luckily one of my best buddies down here at school is a Sox fan and we were going nuts! My roommates are Cubs and Cardinals fans and they were getting so pissed at our obnoxious asses. We went from drinking our sorrows away Saturday night to jumping around and screaming the lyrics of Don't Stop Believing and Lets Go Go Go White Sox as the songs were blairing out of my speakers.

Let's keep it rolling White Sox!

One other thing I forgot: To Ozzie, Kenny and all the players, a heartfelt thanks. No matter what happens against Tampa Bay (Sox in 4), this has been a helluva great season.

Thanks, boys!

All I know is that after the twins swept us, I said we would pull it out, with the exclaimation point being a BA play in center field that would save our season. Well that just happened! **** the Twins, and welcome to the big dance! Great pitching will win every time.

Here is my prediction for the playoffs. When we make it to the ALCS, The Carlos Quentin will have a Gibson moment, propelling us to the world series...Vs. the Phillies! Light it up!:D:

Thursday? **** that...what about those who have never gotten off the bandwagon?

Agreed. There were many here who never gave up and it was fun to stick with the Sox the whole time. What a crowd!!! What a game!!!

I'm loving this as I can't expect one "expert" to pick the Sox over Tampa. How about they keep proving everyone wrong. I love this organization with a chip on it's shoulder. :gulp:

If we make it to the world series it will be against the Cubs, we are destined to play them. If we don't make it they won't.

I really hope there wont be a Cubs-White Sox series. If we lose, imagine the crap we'd go through...

i wonder how many people here deemed the season over 1000000000000 times

Unreal!

My god was that place electric! I didn't dream that Danks would take the ball on 3 days rest and do THAT! Amazing, simply amazing!

I was so uneasy when the offense couldn't do anything against Blackburn, but 1 run was enough with the way Danks was pitching.

Onto Tampa!

Kudos to whoever thought to play "Go Johnny Go" when Danks got on the mic.

Danks is amazing :worship: :worship: :worship: All our pitchers. What Buehrle, Gavin, and Danks did these past 3 days, unreal :worship: :worship:


As an Ozzie detractor, he always seems to handle these games great, I love how he handled Danks tonight, great handling of riding him Jenks. Great to put BA in. CONGRATS ALL AROUND

And to the one run

YOU'RE AWESOME BIG MAN!

Good for all the guys who haven't ever been ... or haven't been in a while ...

Thome
Griff
TCM
BA (didn't make roster in 05)
Thornton
Wise
Hall
Danks
Floyd
Actually I think BA was on the roster because when Pods hit that walkoff Rowand was standing next to BA both of them saying "No way. No way. NO WAY!"

Yep, that's part of the WS DVD.

IIRC, he was on the 40-man or September call-ups but not the playoff ... just like McCarthy standing next to him ... when he said "no way" ...

could be wrong

Nothing would happen, the Sox weren't supposed to be there... if the Sox make it to the world series we should be the best story in all of baseball and the cubs can suck on that. Plus I don't think the sox would allow defeat from the cubs.

**** you Twinkie ****ers!!! Ahhhh,,, now that I got that off my chest....
You Twins should be proud (except for that obviously premature grandstanding you put on last week). You have a good team with a bunch of young talent as usual. I thank you for making our team stronger to compete in this next series!!!


This is what stories are made of!!!!!

Awesome job by KC! (I'm glad we could help you out of the cellar as a token gift)
Awesome job by our last 3 starters! (You came up big when you needed to)
Awesome job by TCM! (what a bomb last night)
Awesome throw by Jr. (and an awesome tag out and hold by AJ)
Awesome bomb by Sock it Thome!!!!!
Awesome catch by seal the deal BA!!!!
Awesome job by our GM and Coach to do the things that count!!!!!

This is shades of 2005!!!!
