I was watching it last night for the White Sox highlights and after they showed pods' walk-off hit they say "This was just Podsednik's 2nd career walk-off hit, his last one coming back in 2004 with the Brewers."

Ahem....

I agree that should have been mentioned, but when people talk about "career" stats, they always leave out the playoffs.

Yeah, this isn't that big of a deal, that HR off Lidge won't show up on any search databases, I'm sure, and I'd be willing to bet every cent I owned that nobody east of the Hudson River actually watched the 2005 World Series, since the Yankees, Red Sox, and Mets all were eliminated beforehand, what's the point, right?

ESPN was correct; Podsednik's walkoff HR in the World Series does not count towards any career numbers. Yesterday's single was indeed his second career walkoff hit, and his first with the Sox.

You mean there was a 2005 WS? I thought it was cancelled that year like 1994? Damn. I was so bored in October too. I had to watch What's Happening reruns to cure my boredom.

Well, we remember what happened in 2006.

Didn't they just cancel the playoffs in 2006? They might as well have.

Thanks. You owe me $3500 for undoing all the therapy it took to cope with that.:tongue:

I agree that should have been mentioned, but when people talk about "career" stats, they always leave out the playoffs.

They leave off the postseason (technically, baseball doesn't have playoffs) unless they remember something dramatic happening in the postseason. Stats are segregated into regular season and postseason, and they only look in the postseason. Game-ending hits isn't an official statistic, but Baseball Tonight apparently couldn't be bothered to remember one of the greatest endings to a baseball game ever played in Chicago.

Jon Miller would have recalled the Podsednik home run.

Yeah, they leave out the postseason when talking official stats, but you have to at least mention the walk off in the world series.
