We bash the hell out of the Trib, but in today's editorial, they actually get it right.
It wasn't a perfect game by any means. Too many mistakes, an umpire's blown call, a couple of closers who couldn't close. But baseball is at its best when players defy expectations, and there was the unlikely slugger, Podsednik, 0-for-the-regular-season in home runs, putting the ball in the seats in the ninth inning. The White Sox won 7-6 to move halfway to a title. We don't know how this series will end, who will succeed and who will fail. But we are witness to a drama that in some ways is more potent than a classic on the theatrical boards. This is life played out on a field, players gathered for a season and a series, stars and castoffs, their strengths and frailties on display game after game. Is it too early to start to hope we can do this again next year?
