Shockin' Sox snare a pair
Instead of skipping town with the split they twice seemed destined to earn, the Astros returned home shocked after suffering a demoralizing 7-6 loss to the White Sox in Game 2 of the World Series last night.

Scott's shocker
is one good call
It wasn't exactly the same kind of myth-making moment that put Babe Ruth's called shot into baseball lore, but there was an interesting conversation at the batting cage yesterday between Scott Podsednik and A.J. Pierzynski, a few hours before Podsednik hit a game-ending home run in Game 2 of the World Series.

Luck? For a Chicago ballclub?
You gotta be kidding!
John Harper: Just like that, the White Sox win, 7-6, to take a 2-0 lead over the Astros in this World Series, a lead that seems as commanding as it was cold and wet here last night. Well, after 88 years you can't say the White Sox aren't due for some good fortune.

Konerko now grand daddy
Paul Konerko almost never shows his emotions on the field, but the White Sox first baseman and cleanup hitter couldn't contain himself in the seventh inning last night. It began to boil up when he felt the solid contact of his bat hitting Chad Qualls' sinker, and it overflowed when he saw the ball land in the left field stands.

Speaking of northeast media, here's the punchline from the Sunday New York Times Crossword puzzle: (WARNING: SPOILER if you a NYT Crossword Puzzle regular)








A man goes for a walk and finds...a bottle on the beach

When he pops the cork, a genie appears and says...I shall grant you one wish

The man says...I want to see peace in the Middle East

He then hands the genie...a map of the area

The genie studies it for a while and finally says, That's impossible. So...I grant you one more wish

The man says...I always wanted to see the Cubs in a World Series













The genie replies...Let me see that map again

Here is a column from a few days ago about Ozzie that I forgot to post

At the end of Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, Ozzie Guillen, the excitable manager of the Chicago White Sox, sat on the couch in the middle of the visitor's clubhouse at Angel Stadium, watching TV, wearing a soccer jersey with his name and number 13 on the back.


The channel changed to a soccer game and Guillen, the Venezuelan, shouted, "A real sport! A real sport!"

It then changed to ESPN, where the volume was lowered but the talking head du jour, former big-league second baseman Harold Reynolds was on the screen, sending Guillen into a ballistic rage.

"Get lost, Harold," Guillen shouted. "You buried us. You buried and now you're saying we're great? Get out of here."

(By Gordon Edes, Globe Staff) The only other World Series game that went this many innings was Game 2 in 1916, when the Red Sox beat Brooklyn, 2-1, and both starting pitchers -- including the winner, George Herman Ruth -- went the distance.

SAY IT'S SO! By MARK HALE

October 27, 2005 -- HOUSTON - The clincher came on Oct. 15, 1917. The sixth game.

That was the day and the game in which the Chicago White Sox finished off the New York Giants to win their second World Series title.

A little more than 88 years later, the White Sox have finally won their third.

Capping off a Series in which they won four games by a combined six runs, the White Sox swept the Astros last night with a 1-0 Game 4 victory. Full story (http://www.nypost.com/sports/56266.htm)

NOTHING TO BE CHI ABOUT HOUSTON Say it is so, Joe. The curses involving the Sox - Red, White and Black - are now officially dead. The White Sox outran their past and beat the Cubs to baseball's promised land. The stepchild of Chicago, the Southside White Sox, are World Series champs for the first time in 88 years because they can hit a little, field a lot and pitch like mad.

DYE CAST AS MVP AS CHI-TOWN ENDS 88-YEAR CURSE


HOUSTON - He released the bat and started pounding his hands together, even before the ball had cleared the infield. Why wait? Jermaine Dye knew exactly what he'd just done. You can play out your entire career without knowing this feeling. A city can struggle through 88 empty baseball seasons without coming close to knowing this feeling. But when it happens, you know. You see a baseball squirting through the middle of the infield.
