We just won our first title in 88 years, but check out this hateful article. It makes me laugh really. This guy probably wants a job with the Cubune if you ask me.

With all due respect, who the **** cares. Our players have rings. We have t-shirts and hats.

Wow, what a piece of garbage.

HOUSTON (AP) -- Enough about the Chicago White Sox (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/chw/) and their World Series championship already.

Yes, they waited 88 years for it. Yes, they swept the Boston Red Sox (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/bos/) in the AL division series, brought the Los Angeles Angels (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/laa/) crashing back to earth in the championship series and kept the Houston Astros (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/hou/) from ever leaving the launching pad in this mercifully brief Series.

Neat little episodes all, but don't waste too much time or too many brain cells figuring out whether this is the start of something big.

Don't waste too much time figuring out? :?:

I stopped reading after that. :mad:

BTW, who's Jim Litke? :cool:

He's a buddy of Jay Mariotti's. It figures.

All I needed was to see the title, then I clicked on the X in the top right corner.

Go **** yourself Jim Litke.

Sounds like you have a major case of sour grapes.

10-27-2005, 09:46 AM
Tool. Loser. Assclown.

That guy is a major piece of ****.

The registered users on that site really gave him an earful - Sox fans, Astros fans, and Red Sox fans alike.

I wonder what the Sox Army has to say to this drill rod? :duck:

Should we post our letter in here as well?

What an idiot. He is already claiming the Sox (red and white) one-hit wonders because Boston didn't repeat.


I want my 2 minutes back.

The two of them had a midday radio show on Sporting News Radio where Litke played the yes-man part. Enough said.

Likte is a fricking fool.

LMAO! The Red Sox won the WS, then came back the following season and made the playoffs but lost to the eventual World Champion Chicago White Sox. Red Sox Nation should hang their heads in shame. What a clown.

He said "percentages" LOL. I think he's a bp sabrematician wannabe who realized the "percentages" argument looks silly...so just rip them any which way possible.

They're lovers.

Of a column fillied with inanities, these three stood out the most:

"Next season, they'll face the top of every rotation and have to ward off every opponent's best shot."

Are you suggesting other teams will juggle their rotation during the regular season to have their aces pitch against the Sox? Can you list one time a team has ever done this specifically because they are facing a pennant winner? (A stretch run when a contending team might skip a lagging starter irrespecive of their opponent doesn't count). Can you provide any proof that teams 'try' harder against champions than also-rans?

"...they'll have an organization on the other side of town with a curse and a drought and the hunger to get even in a hurry."

Can you explain to me how what the Cubs do will affect the way the Sox play, other than the 6 times they face each other? Knowing that the Cubs consistently outspend the Sox, doesn't that suggest they were trying to break their 'curse' in a hurry even before the Sox won the Series?

"They started strong and, except for a three-week run late in the season, kept on winning often enough that the team's ``chemistry'' was never seriously tested."

Did the three week 'collapse' in September not test their chemistry? Do three rounds of playoffs against top-tier teams under the harsh glare of national attention not test a team['s chemistry? Could you give an example of what might have tested their chemistry? (A plane crash killing their infield perhaps? Losing their starting pitchers to Ebola maybe?)

Anxiously awaiting your response,
