No team I dislike more. This was my years Sox highlight. Sox sweep yanks.

That had to be a sweet win for those Sox fans left in attendance with all of the (loud obnoxious) Yankee fans in the ballpark

We're a terrible team but that was a great win. Good series.

I was in the car on the way home when Cano hit the homer. I pulled up just as the bottom of the inning was starting, and by the time I had the computer fired up to see what happened, De Aza was coming up. Bam. Crazy. Never would have predicted that.

This team really has some potential. With just a little tweaking, this could be a good team next year.

Been a bad year but sweeping the Yankees takes the sting off it for a short time anyhow.

This team is horrible. Can't even let us enjoy one last Mariano save at the Cell.

Not even sure why I turned the game on in the 7th. Glad I did. Good for them and nice to see some happy faces on the field for a change. Two out, no one on rallies twice. Fun!

Well, that was fun! Let's count the wonders we've seen lately:

1) A veritable winning streak
2) Beating the Yankees
3) A come from behind blown save for Mariano Rivera
4) With two outs
5) Another come from behind, now a victory
6) AGAIN, all coming with two outs
7) SWEEPING the Yankees :D:

The only downer, once again seeing Axlerod serve up a tater to the first batter he faces. :angry:

I have to say, horrendous baserunning aside, I'm surprised I haven't heard much of anything in terms of teams interested in De Aza.

Given his contract status though, I doubt the Sox will put him on waivers. Unlike Rios, a team will certainly claim him.

Watching the replay on AT BAT ....Alexei actually slid into home headfirst on that final play? Ugh. There wasnt even a relay throw.

Oddly enough, I read on twitter earlier (from a couple Sox beat writers) that with tonight's win this is the first time in 100 years the Sox have swept the Yankees in consecutive series (of 3+ games each).

He probably is on the waiver wire but would be pulled if the return wasnt right. Dunn and Rios may be just a dump but who knows, the Sox might want a return on them also.

I just saw the results and watched the vids on mlb.com.

Great result.

Alex Rios dogged the hell out of that Vernon Wells "single," if no one noticed.

I noticed, Konerko was very far in right and Beckham was covering second because the runners broke. Either way, it was a great win for the White Sox.

Hopefully unlike when they swept the Marlins they don't go on to lose 49 of the next 50.

No matter how you look at it, it was a damn fun game to watch. I cringed when Axelrod gave up the solo shot, but as Hawk always says; "Give em a finish!"

When we made the final out in the 11th, I texted my friend that Axelrod is coming in, so we're going to lose.

At first, it looked like I was right.:angry:


But then I was wrong.:)

A two-out comeback walk off in extras?

HOLY ****ING ****!

What a pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning. After I saw that Axelrod had given up a homer to Cano I figured that was it and went to bed. I'm sure I'm not the only one. :redface:

BTW I saw on At Bat that Coop got run. I'm guessing for arguing balls and strikes?

I was busy last night so I DVR'd this game and plan to watch it tonight. Definitely sounds like it was quite a finish. As I like to say, it is always great to beat (and in this case sweep) the Yankees, even during this miserable 2013 season.

Definitely worth the watch,especially the last 5-6 innings.

I guess you chalk this up to ''thats baseball!''.
I respect Mo,but beating him in his last appearance in Chicago was very cool. The Yank fans in the house were all agog with him out there,snapping pics constantly,and were so certain of the usual close out..but no!....Gordo walks to the plate and everything changes.

I do think in this gloomy season,this series is the keeper...and I believe we have found our leader/second baseman for a decade. With PK exiting, the Sox need a new leader/face of the team,and I think it will be Gordo,in the Utley tradition.

I watched Alex on the popup single by Wells...he did lose it in the lights but ran hard til he saw PK getting in the way....he did not dog it,imo.
Just bad luck,really.

Tyler Flowers biggest hit of the year?...a grounder back to the pitcher? Maybe.
The walk to Gordo shows much respect.
Alexei is having his best hitting(average-wise) year since he came to the US....keep him.
Dunn's oppo single was a stunner,down 0-2 to Mo...that was like a miracle,but Dunn has made himself attractive to the Rangers lately.

Alejandro has frustrated all Sox fans with his mental blunders,but as Melton said in the postgame...he has been their best clutch hitter all year,really.

Call me crazy(and many will) but I still think that this team,with the addition of Garcia,and maybe another hitter, could compete next season.
Nobody has hit to their potential this year,or defended as well as they can...next year,baseball magic could happen on the South Side!

We were driving back home from northern Wisconsin during the game, and could only hear it on a very static-y AM670, starting about 2 hours north of Madison. When I heard the Sox were losing 3-0, I almost turned it off. But we listened to the entire game, with the radio cutting in and out during in some of the most critical parts (the 8th and 9th). Argh! But we heard the walkoff win; I grabbed my son's arm and we did some yelling and fist-bumping. :D:

I'd recorded the game with extra time tacked on to it, and I just started watching it...but the recording only made it to the bottom of the 11th!

I just watched the bottom of the 9th. Did anyone notice Beckham blowing a bubble with his gum as he hauled butt to home plate with the tying run? :rolling: How does he do that?

Now that was a :gulp: sweep.. Nothing finer than bitch slappin those Pinstripers from the Bronx.. Looks like we are keeping up with this record breaking year. 100 years between consecutive sweeps.. Bout damn time I say.. Have a nice life Mariano.. No fireworks for you last night.. Just a can of Oh ****..

Thought the boys were gonna sleep walk thru this one after they went down early.... fooled the piss out of me. Of course Gas Can Axelrod had to give us this seasons never ending TUMS moment..

Yes, this was sweet.. Badly needed on this years cruise of the Titanic..

Ax has outlived his usefulness. He won't be here in 2014. Nate Jones has it figured out and hit 100+ last night. Might be good to shop Reed after the season.

Yep, I caught that while watching the highlights and did a double take. The way things have gone for the Sox this year, he's lucky he didn't choke on it, pass out, and get tagged out 2 steps from home to lose the game!

Axelrod doesn't even go to arbitration until after the 2015 season, so he will likely be in the organization somewhere. Yeah, asking him to start every 5th day is probably a bit over his head, but find me teams that only use 6 or 7 different starting pitchers over the course of a year. Extremely rare. Guys like Axelrod, cheap pitchers who are capable of eating innings on short notice, are valuable organizational depth.

Nah. No need to shop relief pitchers who are young and cost-controlled. I'd hold on to both Jones and Reed unless a team makes an offer the Sox can't refuse.
