Now, if only the Tribune could be won.

good article. wish they would have supplied some quotes from A's players, though. I'm interested in what they had to say.

"It was a weird, strange two games," catcher Jason Kendall said. "I don't think I've seen play called so many times. Balls on the field. Fans on the field. Outfielders playing shortstop. Fortunately for us, we came out on the good side."

That was a fantastic article in the Sun-Times. I believe the title was Defeated But Not Dejected. I just finished reading the article at work and I was actually very excited by how the Times depicted Ozzie praising his players and telling them how proud he was of them in how they competed in the series despite the fact that they were a patched together line-up.

My respect for Ozzie as a manager grew leaps and bounds after reading that story.

Who was it that said, "On any team you have 10 guys that love you, 10 guys that hate you, and 10 guys that are undecided. Your job as a manager is to keep the 10 that hate you away from the 10 guys that are undecided"?

Ozzie's handling of this series goes very far to not only keep the undecided from the detractors, but to help obliverate any detractors that may have existed before.

I always try to look for the silver lining, and I suspect that this past Oakland series has the possibility of unifiying and already solid bunch of guys into one champion unit.

Hopefully the Oakland series will have what I believe was a similar effect on the team as the Sox-Tigers Brawl of 2000 did. Then again... we didn't have Dye on the team back then.

[I've supported Garland, Konerko and Crede when the rest of Soxdom was calling for their heads. I'm having a hard time standing behind Dye. Somebody please tell me how wrong I am.]
