As long as Gammo picks the Angels, we're all right.

They highlighted how tired the Angels' pitching is right now. They even dared to state that we are the most complete team around, along with the Cardinals.

Take it for what it's worth; but, I too like our chances in this series.

As long as we don't lose a home game, we can't be beat.

Gammons picked us to beat the Red Sox.

I don't know if you checked the predictions for the Sox/Red Sox series; but, Peter Gammons was one of only four guys for ESPN that predicted our Sox to win.

He picked the Sox to win it in four.

Gammons picked us to beat the Red Sox.
Reports are that he waffled: Right Sox on TV, Wrong Sawx on radio, then Right Sox on TV again.

The bandwagon is getting too full (At least when Kruk got on).

I didn't hear it personally, but supposedly he flip-flopped on the radio the next day and picked the Red Sox.

So actually he picked both. What a genius. :D:

I concur on that one, I heard both.

"I think the White Sox are going to win the World Series"

Two Days later:

:boston
"The Red Sox are in the best position to win the world series"

A day after:

:boston
"The Yankees clearly have to be the world Series favorites right now"

Four days later:

:boston
"The Cardinals are the best team in baseball and the World Series favorites, as well as my pick to win"

Postseason predictions:

:boston
"Obviously the Astros are going to win. I've been with them all season long."

Dammit, I can't agree with Kruk, I said the Sox in 5. Now I'm saying the Sox in 4.

There's also a poll on espn.com with a choice of what world series matchup people would like to see, and White Sox vs. Cardinals is leading the poll!:o:

I think everyone picking the in Chicago-Boston series picked the Sox to win.

Most White Sox fans probably feel they couldn't get a better shot at getting to the World Series. I know I do. I also know the Angels feel they have some momentum. A worn Angels pitching staff only helps the Sox if the Sox hitters take advantage of it and Sox pitchers continue to step it up.

I've felt a spirit on this team I haven't felt in my lifetime. It's time to just do it.

New England and New York voters want us in the World Series. :smile:

It looks like 80% of the voters so far want us in the World Series.

C'mon, Sox...let's do it!

Worse. Sox play better as underdogs, have all year.

Fortunately, 7 out of 10 of the ESPN "analysts" pick the Angels. Only Caple, Phillips and Gillette picked us. Good thing Pedro "Detroit will win the AL Central" Gomez has the Angels in 6.

Chicago. We are the new East Coast. Reminds me of 2002 when it was ANA, SF, STL and MIN. Not only were they all non-East Coast, but they were all west of the Mississippi River.

Looks like the White Sox are America's new darling team. No teal, either. Of course, if we flop in 4 or 5 games, we'll be forgotten as quickly as we were discovered.

I just saw this. I'm not sure what they're looking at, but I can't complain. We need everyone picking against the Sox.

I loooove when I see JB having crow stuffed into his fat face

Out of all the mediots, I dislike him the most, for obvious reasons .... How does that greasy slob STILL have a job??

Funny Thread, some good laughs at crow eating

But does it matter who the ESPN "experts" pick, or the Tribune " Experts" or the insider Bruce Levine, or all 9 members of the John Kruk fat guy team, or Tom Emanski and the Crime Dog before they shoot the next fundementals of baseball video?

Well unless these guys will be throwing a 1-2 breaking ball, batting with runners in scoring position, or turning a double play this series, anything and everything they say doesnt mean squat.

Poll everyone on ESPN, but this series will be decided by 52 guys, 50 players, 2 managers, they are the only ones who mean anything.

Joey Cora, Tim Raines, Don Cooper, Harold Baines, Greg Walker and Art Kusnyer (and Man Soo Lee) don't mean anything?

Actually, it's 5-5 (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs2005/series?series=laachw)

Caple, Phillips, Gillette, Crasnick, and Gammons are all picking us. Maybe Gammons flip-flopped again.

Stark, Olney, Neel, Gomez, and Miller are proving themselves to be the biggest idiots of the bunch, especially Miller, predicting the the Angels in 5.
