I love the term "winning ugly", gentlemen, but let's leave it for the 1983 club. And small ball? What!?

Why does "small ball" or "winning ugly" have to surface when we win because we have great pitching? I wish these guys would come up with something original, something not out of a historical textbook. It's unreal. We won 8-0 a couple days ago, and now we win because of some timely hits (Crazy Carl's was almost a HR) and 2 big HR that got us back in the game. Was that ugly? Was that small ball? Hardly.

The media is so stale that we have to hear stale comparisons to teams of old. To me, this pitching is a beautiful. We are winning with swagger. It's lovely to me.

"Clutch Winning" --- I hope to see more of it

I like it. Winning Ugly was '83, Small Ball can be put with the '59 team.

You know what those other teams had in common? Losing--very ugly--in the playoffs.

I think that "Win or Die trying" is going to stick

The Sox have won games in a variety of ways this season. Let's just say that they're winners. Plain and simple.
