ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels leadoff man Chone Figgins has yet to score in the ALCS and was batting .100 through the first three games, .129 (4 for 31) in the postseason. Garret Anderson, Vladimir Guerrero, and Bengie Molina -- who occupy the third through fifth spots in the order -- were a combined 3 for 33, with Anderson (home run) ...

(By Gordon Edes, Globe Staff) ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Angels were hoping for some more magic from Ervin Santana, the kind he dispensed against the Yankees when he came out of the bullpen for an injured Bartolo Colon in their Division Series-clinching win just five nights previous.

Sox make White noise
The White Sox took another step toward making their first World Series appearance since 1959 and possibly winning their first title since 1917 by walloping the Angels in Game 4 of the ALCS last night.

Angels haven't got
a clue, prayer
John Harper: This must be nothing short of astonishing to any Yankees who actually might be watching on TV. They know the Angels only as the team they can't beat, the team that gets all the clutch hits, makes all the right plays, and yet that same team in the red and white looks absolutely helpless against the White Sox.

Ump to no good
Bill Madden: The outrageous Doug Eddings no-catch non-call in the White Sox-Angels ALCS, preceded a couple of days earlier by the egregious Joe West call of interference on Robinson Cano in the Yankees-Angels series, and by myriad blown calls and increasingly aggressive behavior by umpires during the regular season has brought the inevitable renewed call for the use of instant replay in baseball.

ANAHEIM — The baseball gods have aligned against the Angels and with the White Sox. There is a lot of payback due from 1917.


Open Mike FANS have been killing the ump for a century. They have been accusing referees of being on the take even longer. It is believed that just before a Christian named Murphy was given a permanent TV timeout by a lion in ancient Rome during the playoffs of AD 96, his final earthly pursuit was to try and throw a red flag, to let the officials in the replay booth have another look at the play.

By MICHAEL MORRISSEYANAHEIM — White Sox slugger Paul Konerko wanted to hammer out a contract in spring training. The team didn't.

White Sox on Verge (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/16/AR2005101600025.html)

The White Sox move within one game of the World Series with an 8-2 win over the Angels as Freddy Garcia pitches Chicago's third straight complete game.

Angel anger?

6:22 P.M., PST – My ears are deceiving me. Vladimir Guerrero grounds to short to begin the bottom the fourth and the easygoing, SoCal crowd rained down a heap of boos on last year’s MVP. There is frustration here. The Angels are down 5-1 and facing a Freddy Garcia who looks as sharp as his three companeros before him.
There is desperation here. Chone Figgins, the leadoff hitter, the engine, entered the game hitting .129 in the series, and has struck out in both at-bats tonight. The prospect of going down 3-1 in games has the chardonnay drinkers a little restless.
But wait, we have a rally. Garret Anderson’s one-out single was followed by Casey Kotchman’s two-out double. At the end of four, it’s White Sox 5, Angels 2.Posted By : Howard Bryant | Time : 09:20:56 pm

One theme consistent from mediots outside of Chicago is that the Angels hitters are struggling and the White Sox pitchers aren't this good.

Here's an example from one of fenway's links:

"The Chicago pitching can't be this good, can it?"

Though this auther did have a funny comment about Vlad: " Compared to Vladimir Guerrero, Alex Rodriguez is Mr. October."

From the Daily News article:

Even all those New York-hating fans around the country surely must be wishing they'd gotten Yankees-Red Sox III by now.

Nope. Not even a bit. Although I will allow that if the Yankees had played the White Sox, it would be every bit as one-sided as this series has been. Maybe that's what he meant by yearning for NYY-Red Cubs.

Still got to take care of business tonight, of course.:cool:
