I pretty much decided that I am going to give up on playoff tickets and focus my energy on what will be the biggest series of the year. I want to be there when we beat down any false hopes the Indians might have in their swollen cartoon heads. Anyone else having similar thoughts? Who's going already?

****, Next week Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday will pretty much tell us how this is going to go down.

It shouldn't have come to this, but it has. SHOW UP SOX!

Exactly. Which is why I'm going to be there cheering my ass off for the best team in the AL, instead of sitting here and bitching about how they are not playing to my expectations. You heard it here first- South Side beatdowns for the Indians next week.

I just looked on ticketbastard. Only upper deck for next weeks games vs. Tribe. I would assume if the division lead goes down even farther (god forbid!!!) those games sell out by sunday night.

Well, seeing that its at 13 now. That is going to be a hard task. With every Sox win and Indians loss, it goes down by 2.

Big series indeed. I've had club level for the Monday game for a while. I took advantage of the half price early in the season.
A few months ago, there was a chance that this could have been the clincher. Now, it's come down to a very very big game.

I saw some pretty good seats, lots of different options, on EBay. All of the prices looked pretty good too.

How is that fact? Hypothetical: If we sweep the Twins and they sweep KC, then the Magic # will be 10 on Monday, while we preserve the lead, they'd run out of time. Same situation if we get swept and they do as well. I guess I shouldn't even ask since you'll probably be banned soon...

If we sweep and the Royals sweep, wouldn't the magic number be 6?

I think 7. Point of mine was in the two situations I listed, the magic # would be double digits and we'd be in good shape

Here is how I predict next series will play out. Cleveland will come out thinking they have the division in their hands and they will be really really overconfident. Ozzie by then has lit a fire in the team and we come out charging out of the gate and pound the Injuns so far into the ground the first two games that the term "Dark Cloud" around here will become nonexistant for those two days. The third game Cleveland will have cool heads and it will be a throw-up. Sox win the division by 3 games. (KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK ON WOOD)

After the 2nd game Ozzie lets out a huge roar during the press conference to release all of his frustration built up since August. Cubune is so shocked their sports section is blank the next morning.

I just e-mailed Ozzie, basically telling him that I expect nothing less (in a respectfull and dignified manner, of course).

I'll be behind the foulpole in right field IF I can get my tix without my old credit card and verification #.:o: I called them and left a message yesterday but still no word. I'm sure with my license I"ll be fine. (crossing fingers)


Forcast for Chicago (I know it's Chitown and it can change)...High in the mid 70's and lows in the mid 50's. Brrrr. Sounds like playoff baseball weather to me.:smile:

chisoxfan83
09-16-2005, 12:33 PM
I got tickets for every game of the homestand, all I have to say The place better be sold out. Remember when the *cough* Royals were leading the division or close to the top in 03 when they came into Chicago for a 3 game set. I was there the monday and tuesday. The electeicity coming from the crowd was awesome. They were standing for every close play. That was the last time we felt like we were in an actual pennant race and well we all know what happened that season. Lets go Sox and for fans the series coming up with Indians probably will be one of the most covered series at the cell this even more than the yanks and red sox series.

WHAT???????????

We play 3 games before Cleveland. They two play 3 games. So if we when 3, they lose all three...the magic number would be 7. We would be 7.5 up.

If that's not the case the season is over? IT IS MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BE LOWER THAN 7. What if we lose every game before then, CLE wins every game...that would make the magic number 13..our lead 1.5. We then go on to sweep CLE...magic number down to 7....lead up to 4.5 with a week and a half left....but the season is over.............

if you are going to jump off the sox band wagon jump off now.

I'm going Wednesday with a group of about 35 people. We're going to do some tailgating but I don't know where yet. We'll be in the upper deck 512. The tickets only cost us $3.50. I'm pretty vocal so I'll be working it up there.

I also have tickets for the Sept. 24 (110) and 25 (116) games against the Twinkies.

I'll be the guy wearing the "Toddler With a Glandular Problem Sized Luvs". If anybody wants to meet me for a beer during the game, please bring some baby powder and the first pop is on me.
