Not that it matters, but if this current crop of players lead the Sox to another WS, I think they'll do so with a little more fanfare.
I really think that it wasn't our personnel...for the ESPN guys it's personal! We beat their beloved Red Sox 04 World series team, so they will exclude the White Sox championship so people forget the Red Sox got beat so thoroughly that year by a clearly better team. But..but..but...we have Manny and Big Papi!
