Just now, both Kruk and Reynolds pick the Sox for starting pitching, bullpen (Reynolds picked the Astro's just barely for bullpen,) and offense, and obviously both picked the Sox to win the Series.

I don't know if that's a good thing, but there it is!

I was just going to post this. It's kind of disturbing that we aren't the underdogs anymore.

It took these two Madison Ave., east coast promotion yes men since spring training to pick the Sox, good thing the mets aren't in the Series

I was getting a little nauseous from all the saccharine sweet love fest.

But look at me - typical Sox fan - clamoring for respect ALL YEAR and once we finally get what we deserve I don't want it.


No wonder my love life is so dysfunctional.

I didn't matter when they picked against us and it sure doesn't matter when they pick for us. We'll do our job on the field and they can make their predictions all they want. Nobody gives a whatever. Let's face facts: the ESPN geniuses haven't distinguished themselves this year with their ability to predicut outcomes.

With this White Sox team, I honestly don't worry about them letting up even if they are the majority favorites among sportswriters and mediots.

FWIW, Steve Phillips picked the Sox in 7. Peter Gammons also just picked the Sox on Sportscenter.

Of course ESPN is going to pick us, we are closer to the Eastern Seaboard than Houston.

Yeah that bullpen did such a GREAT job in game 5.

If anyone didn't see Reynolds and Kruk pick us, they both compared the Sox and Stros in terms of SP, bullpen, offense, and manager. The only pick for the Stros was Reynolds picking their bullpen and that was only because he wasn't sure how the Sox pen would react to so much time off. Just one question though: how can these ESPN guys be more confident in the Sox's chances than me, a lifelong Sox fan? ***?

I like being the underdogs .... These guys are idiots, and they've proved it time and again this season

Why are we still paying attention to these clowns? :dunno:

Yeah, remember how terrible Jon Garland was after almost 2 weeks off?

I trust our guys. Hey, if we can go another 4 straight CGs....why not?

You'd think all of us would have learned the lesson that the Sox gotta win it all before they get the credit they deserve. And who gives a **** about that too? GO-GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They were pretty smart with their predictions for the ALCS.

I find these threads funny. If they don't pick the Sox, they are idiots. If they do, they are idiots.

You'd think all of us would have learned the lesson that the Sox gotta win it all before they get the credit they deserve.Here's an example. ALL of BBTN gives the Sox "the credit they deserve" and we have a poster saying that they don't get "the credit they deserve."

I'm confused.

Kruk and Reynolds are true "heiny birds". They fly in around in the same concentric circle. Eventually they will fly up each other's ass and both disappear forever! :bandance:

Yeah, they may have picked us, but they sounded that they regret doing this. Anyway, I don't care what these idiots think.

Yes, and you are missing the underlying theme... they are idiots!! No matter what they do or say, they have proven themselves to be bandwagon hopping clowns. They picked the Red Sox over us, and if we would have played the Yankees they would have picked them over us.

Kruk picked us to sweep the Angels.

No he didnt. He picked us in 5 and was absolutely right. Reynolds said Sox in 6 over the Angels. I dont know where you people come up with these numbers!:o:

EDIT: Heres the old thread from before the Angels series. Hopefully Kruk will be right on again!

ESPN Cold Pizza is very against the Sox, almost everyone has picked the Astros.

I heard this on M&M this morning, and my first thought was, "I hope this is where Kruk and Reynolds start being right about something for a change."

Now Peter Gammons picked us to win the WS.

Gammons also picked us to beat Boston and then to beat the Angels. He has been right on the money.

WHO CARES! That's why they play the games!

He also picked the Red Sox over us on the radio, and picked the angels online.

He's just covering his ass.

Someone else brought it up, but I simply refuse to let the HOF get away with it. Gammons turned around and picked the Red Sox on The Dan Patrick Radio Show less than 24 hours after picking the White Sox online.

These fools simply look at the larger media market and pick them to win every series, which is why Chicago is finally favored to win one.

Just wondering when ESPN will run the story about all the great former Yankee pitchers in the Series, and where would the Yankees be today had they kept these guys.
