View Full Version : Describe your perfect ending to this season

For some reason the "would you cry" thread got me thinking about this. Just wondering if everyone could describe it. Of course we are all going to want it to end it with Sox winning the Championship but... Who would it be against? Would you want it to be an easy 4-game sweep or a dramatic walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 9th in game 7?

I've thought about it and I'd like it to be against the Cardinals just so to see all the northsiders squirm. Plus it's close enough that we could all travel down for the road games. :cool:

As much as I'd love a 4-game sweep, I'd want them to finish it at home so I guess it would have to be in game 6. I don't know if I'd be able to hold out for a dramatic win so I'd want them to have an "easy" win. Something like 5-1 or 6-2 where they are leading the entire game and the team is starting the celebrations by the bottom of the 8th. Have Hermanson come in and K the last guy and let the dogpile begin on the infield grass. That would be perfect.

I can't there are Children who view this site... Plus my wife and I would probably get arested for "being" at home plate in game 7 in the bottom of the 9th as Scotty Pods steals home on Jason isringhausen.

Game 6 victory, at home, against the Cards, 5-2 victory, Big Frank coming off the bench in a pinch hitter role driving in the winning 3rd run. The whole team votes him MVP.

On a side note - we've talked in different threads about uni changes, Chicago flag patches, etc....I'd like to see the team wear a 35 patch when the magic # gets to 35...and wear it for the rest of the season. How cool would that be?

Tie game, bottom 10th, game 7. Been tied since the 6th when we tied it up on a 2 run HR by Pierzynski. 8th inning 3 up 3 down by Jenks. 9th inning 3 up 3 down by Cotts and Pollite. 10th inning Hermanson fights out of a jam with no runs. Podsednik leads off the 10th with a bunt single. He steals second. Iguchi moves him over with a soft grounder to first. Rowand lofts a long sac fly to LF, Pods makes it in, the celebrations begin as we win with a textbook Ozzieball ending.

Should this whole thread be in deep pink?

If the game went this way, I probably wouldnt be able to make it through the 10th, because i would of passed away from a heart attack in the bottom of the 9th.

And im only 26!

Not going to happen (probably) but I want them to play the D'Backs because then I will be at BOB for at least one game, probably both.

HOWEVER, no matter who they play, I emphatically don't want it to go 7 games. Lived through that in 2001, and if that was nerve-wracking--and it was--this would be 1,000 times worse! Five games at most (with Sox winning, of course!) On a walk-off homer by Paul Konerko. Or better yet, Scott Podsednik. :rolleyes:

I lie awake at night imagining this very thing. Game 7, USCF, bases loaded and Isringhausen trying to hold it together for the Cards. Big Hurt gimps to the plate. A walk ties the game and there's no place to put him. So Isringhausen tries to paint the corners. All to no avail. After a mind-destroying 18 pitch at-bat, he hangs a dud right there, right where Frank loves it. BAM! Everyone knows it the minute the ball leaves the bat. Somehow there's 50,000 people crammed into USCF -- but they all go absolutely bananas (:bandance: ).

Frank hobbles around the bases, his face beaming with delight. He feels no pain, only the collective ecstacy of every living Sox fan who has just been released from baseball purgatory. 10 minutes of nonstop fireworks. A phone call from the Mayor triggers the air raid sirens for the first time since 1959. It's over, it's finally over. THE WHITE SOX ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS AGAIN.

Game 5 in Atlanta (b/c then I'd be at the game). 1-1 game in the top of the 9th, 2 outs, Rowand on 2nd. Frank comes in to pinch hit for Buehrle (who has been lights out), and lines a double off of Smoltz into the gap that brings Rowand into score.

Hermanson comes in for the bottom of the 9th. He stikes out Kelly Johnson and Marcus Giles, which brings up Andruw Jones, the home run king. On a full count pitch, Jones hits it deep to centerfield. Rowand climbs the wall and reaches over for the catch. But then he holds it in his glove for a couple seconds to let the fans think the Braves just tied it up. Then as the crowd is going nuts and Andruw is starting his home run trot, he pulls the ball out and the celebration begins!

That is an awesome ending. I would just be amazed if a player could pull off a bluff like that knowing his team just won the World Series.

Sweep the Red Sox in the ALCS, and then win it in seven games against the Cards. And yeah, Frank coming off the bench in the bottom of the tenth to knock one out and win the Series would be one of the most amazing things I'd ever seen, and probably one of the last as well!

Has to be a sweep. Otherwise our "friends" at 1060 W. Addison and ESPN will talk about how "lucky" the Sox were to "pull this one off." Was hoping for a Frank Walk-Off, but that is out of the question now.:whiner:

I think a Scotty Po. steal of Home with two outs in the bottom of the 9th of a scoreless game off the NL post-season ERA leader would suffice.:D:

Game 7, Sox down a run, bottom of the ninth, one out. Ozzie Guillen, who activated himself in time to be on the post-season roster, singles on a pitch out of the strike zone (of course). However, he is out shortly thereafter as he gets fooled by the hidden ball trick for the third time in his career. Harold Baines, activated in time to make the post-season roster, doubles into the right center field gap to keep the inning alive. Big Hurt limps to the plate, and on a 3-2 pitch, hits one that takes a small chip out of the newly-christened bronze statue of himself for the WS win, and needs a pinch runner to make it around the bases for him.

SWEEPing the Cubs in the World Series would be very, very nice, but there'd probably be a ton of conspiracy theories kicked around afterward.

Plus I think we'd lose what little sanity we'd have left at that point if we had to read what would undoubtedly be unbelievably biased media coverage throughout the entire playoffs.

So I guess we'll have to make do with the Cubs not making the playoffs. Oh, well. :rolleyes:

I heard an interview with the long time Phillies announcers last year. He said that in 1980, fans petitioned to allowed them to do a local broadcast of the game. Fans were so vocal that the network gave in and allowed them to do a local broadcast with the hometown announcers. I'm sure the rules have changed, otherwise we would have been subjected to Santo in the booth during the '03 NLCS. Either way, when we get to that point, we need to petition to have Hawk and DJ calling the game.

The Sox couldn't hit a "walk-off" homer in the 5th game of the World Series, because they have already been assured home field advantage...

Anyways...Game 4 against the Cardinals. Sox are up in the series 3-games-to-none. The bottom of the nineth comes with the Sox leading 3-2. Dustin Hermanson strikes out the first two batters, but then he allows a couple of hits and walks the bases loades. So, there are two outs now with the sacks packed with bad guys. Pujols is up, and Ozzie comes out to talk to Hermanson for a little bit. After Hermanson settles in, he quickly throws two strikes to Pujols. With an 0-2 count, Pujols skys it high with AJ Pierzynski tracking the path of the ball. It's definitely foul and looks like it's going into the stands. It appears as if Pierzynski has lost the ball in the lights. While walking back to home plate (with his glove upwardly open), the ball somehow "boomerangs" its way back in play and hits down in fair play right by home plate. Pierzynski sees the ball at that point, grabs it, and tags home plate for the game-ending forceout. The entire Sox dugout, bullpen, and field get together in a frenzy over AJ.

Not exciting.

I want to have a seven-game set with Atlanta, pitchers duels all the way. We can't win on home runs, only on small ball. I want game 7 to have Buehrle pitching, facing off against John Smoltz. I want perfect games carried into the 9th inning. In the bottom of the 9th, I want Podsednik leading off, getting a bunt single just out of Smoltz's reach. I want the sweat to be pouring down Smoltz's face as he hears Podsednik taking off toward 2nd. I want Iguchi to stare down Smoltz so he gets angry. Smoltz will then throw a ball over the catchers golve as Podsednik advances to 3rd. I want Smoltz to step off the mound and look around at the Cell, and at that moment, I want him to realize that this is the White Sox's year. I want the Sox to look at each other and know that they will bring World Series glory to Chicago again. I want them to start crying in the dugout as Iguchi lays down the perfect suicide squeeze, and as Podsednik crosses home plate, the Cell falls completely silent, as the fans realize what has happened. After a minute, I want the fan cheer to be heard all over America, as the Sox raise the trophy high above their heads. All of this happens while Cub fans sit at home and see what true winners are.

Of course we are all going to want it to end it with Sox winning the Championship but... Who would it be against? Would you want it to be an easy 4-game sweep or a dramatic walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 9th in game 7?

I've thought about it and I'd like it to be against the Cardinals just so to see all the northsiders squirm. Plus it's close enough that we could all travel down for the road games. :cool:

As much as I'd love a 4-game sweep, I'd want them to finish it at home so I guess it would have to be in game 6. I don't know if I'd be able to hold out for a dramatic win so I'd want them to have an "easy" win. Something like 5-1 or 6-2 where they are leading the entire game and the team is starting the celebrations by the bottom of the 8th. Have Hermanson come in and K the last guy and let the dogpile begin on the infield grass. That would be perfect.

:)
It's an interesting dilemma with the Cards, isn't it? On one hand, I love rooting for them and Sox vs. Cards would cause mass Cub fan suicides, but on the other hand it might create bad blood between the teams somehow, which I wouldn't like, as I'd like to continue liking the Cardinals, and of course the Cards are the best team in the NL...wouldn't it be better for someone else to upset them so that we wouldn't have to? I'd be reaaaaal happy going in if I knew we were facing the Braves or someone like that.

my perfect endings would be the Sox clinching the division, ALDS, ALCS and Ws when I'm not at work.

:anon:





You had to go and ruin this whole thread didnt you:mad:

I would vote for thomas coming back to hit a game winning homer in the bottom of the 9th in game seven. That would be a story to tell the grandkids in 2060!

Game 1: Sox 3 Braves 1(Buehrle Win)
Game 2: Sox 6 Braves 4(Garland Win)
Game 3: Sox 4 Braves 3(Garcia Win)
Game 4: Sox 0 Braves 1(Smoltz Win)-To send it back to Chicago.
Game 5: Mark Buehrle has pitched a fantastic game through eight and one-half innings. He has only thrown 91 pitches but has given up one unearned run on a tough hop groundball by Juan Uribe. Chris Reitsma comes in to relieve Mike Hampton after he went eight scoreless innings allowing just four hits and zero runs. After 121 pitches it was an easy decision for Bobby Cox to bring in his closer. The first two batters go down quickly, but not without making noise. Paul Konerko flew out to the wall in dead center field and Carl Everett lined out to Reitsma on a fantastic catch. Aaron Rowand steps up to the plate and takes the first two pitches for strikes before fouling off three in a row. The count remains 0-2 until Rowand loops the ball into shallow left field. The White Sox still have life for the day. They obviously do not want to play another game tomorrow. Juan Uribe steps up, looking for revenge for the run he allowed to score earlier. The first three pitches miss outside and Juan takes the next two pitches for strikes on the outside corner. The sixth pitch of the at bat misses just high. Timo Perez steps up to the plate with the tying run on second. The first pitch is taken just outside but the runners are going on the pitch! SAFE! The winning run is on second base for Timo, who has never faced Reitsma in his career. The second pitch from Reitsma is lined down the right field line but Timo's bid for a walk-off hit was denied as the ball lands inches foul. Timo steps out of the box and pulls a pack of David's Sunflower Seeds out of his pocket. He takes a handful and puts them in his mouth. He steps back in to the box and waits on the 1-1 pitch. Reitsma throws a curveball and Timo pops it up to third base. It is drifting towards the stands though. It just gets into the stands and Chipper Jones retreats to his position. The 1-2 pitch is another curveball low and on the outside corner. Timo swings and hits a dibbler down the first base line foul. Reitsma sets for another 1-2 pitch as Timo refills his supply of sunflower seeds. Timo steps into the box and waits for the pitch. A soft line drive to left center! It is a White Sox winner! FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1917, THE WHITE SOX HAVE WON THE WORLD SERIES!

Timo steps on first base and is swamped by his teammates, including Rowand and Uribe after they score. The White Sox stand on the field for five minutes waiving to fans until they eventually go into a champagne filled locker room. Timo stays on the field to be interviewed by the FOX crew. He answers his questions with fireworks audible and visible behind. He eventually enters the locker room and is drenched with champagne. The White Sox are given the World Series trophy as a team because that is what they are. The trophy is handed to Timo who lifts it above his head before passing it around to the rest of his team and family.

The only thing that could have made it better would be if Hawk and DJ were added to the FOX crew. Who wouldn't love to hear a huge, "YES!" when the White Sox finish it off.

A couple of problems with this:

#1- Game 5 would be in Atlanta. The series goes 2-3-2

#2- Uribe take 6 pitches without a swing? bwahahahahaha!

Perfect ending to this season.....?

Big #35 making a miraculous return, and towering over Bud Selig after his first championship and bellowing into the mic to a capacity U.S. Cellular Field crowd, all of Chicago, and Sox fans everywhere...."FINALLY!"

It'd only be right. :gulp:

The Sox beat the Angels in the ALDS. Meanwhile, the BlowSux beat the crap out of the A's.

The Sox go up 3-1 in the ALCS and in Game 5 in the top of the 9th, Manny Ramirez decides to crawl into the wall in LF to take a dump. The umpire refuses to call time out, so Pods hits the ball out to LF and runs around the bases for an inside the park home run, trying the game at two. This PO's Johnny Damon, who turns around, flicks off the entire crowd in Fenway, declares himself a free agent and leaves. Red Sox Nation is in tears all over the world. As Manny leaves the scoreboard latrine and emerges on the field to a chorus of jeers, the ghost of Babe Ruth follows him. Babe grabs a mic from somewhere and says 'I told you so.' Just then Schilling begins to bleed from his crotch and collapses on the mound, but in a true moment of triumph he throws a hanging curveball to Iguchi, who places the ball somewhere over the green monster. Hermanson comes on for the save and afterwards celebrates on the field, pointing a finger in the air to give thanks. Then, the Virgin Mary appears on the field and says 'you're welcome.' The Braves, who make it to the WS, know they are screwed.

Game 7 in St. Louis... Going into the bottom of the 15th inning tied 2-2. Bobby Jenks is brought in and strikes out the side. Then to the top of the 16th where Crede and Uribe both ground out and Jenks steps to the plate. First pitch... strike right down the middle, second pitch back door slider strike, Jenks never takes the bat off his shoulder... until... the next pitch is a fast ball right there and the mighty Bobby Jenks sends it soaring deep over the center field wall for a home run! The Sox lead 3-2!
Then then go into the bottom of the 16th where Jenks again strikes out the side, this time ending the World Series with Pujols looking.

Game 6 at the cell. 2-2 in the bottom of the 9th. Pods singles. Next pitch he takes off and Gooch rips it into the right field corner, as Pods rounds 3d I jump onto the field and escort him home step-for-step and jump into the melee at homeplate. I look back and see 40,000 others joining me on the field for the greatest party we'll ever experience.

If you did that I don't think you'd jump on the melee, I think the melee would jump on you.

I want to win the lottery, buy a huge mansion somewhere, retire by the time I'm 30 and drive around all day in a Ferrari. It probably won't ever happen but it's fun to dream about.

The Sox winning the WS is a hell of a lot more possible but it's fun to dream about it too. You cannot tell me you've never thought about it...

That would be nice except the AL won the ASG so Game 7 would be at home

Ok, people have been confusing me... it's 2 at home, 3 on the road and 2 at home again... that's right.

Well, then they'll have Bobby Jenks pinch hit in the 15th and hit a game winning home run.

Net Boy visits St. Louis and base jumps into the net behind home plate. However the SOX are still not distracted as they win game 4 for a sweep 8-0 behind a 1 hour 58 minute beauty from Burly-man and a 6 run 7th inning. Following the game the team boards a special limited express train and travels to Chicago through the heartland, stopping at each station to be cheered on by throngs of die-hard SOX fans. The train eventually pulls in to a specially-errected platform across the parking lots from the Cell. :bandance: :supernana: :bandance: :D: :happybday :cool: :D: :bandance: :supernana:

On second thought...I think that nothing would be more suitable for the "WIN or Die Trying" campaign than for Rowand to make the most outstanding catch ever to end the season with the Sox holding on to a close lead at the moment.
