The Twins seem to be refunding the Sox Metrodome tax back this year...I think they owe a bit more

Crowd was absolutely great last night. Again, mostly diehards who were with every pitch. When the Twins first went up on Detroit 2-0, as SOON as they posted the score on the RF board, everyone was going nuts. Reminded me very much of a last weekend game I went to in 2008.

Of course, there was a Wave for about 10 minutes in the 7th inning... But, eh, I was over in 155 basically right behind the LF foul pole and even THAT wasn't so bad, at least by me, seemed like people were up for multitasking. Really, one of the better games I have ever been to. Glad they rewarded us with the win.

Some people react badly whenever anything is said about lack of bums on seats and I get that. I think baseball games should affordable to every kid in Chicago. But it can be easy to underestimate what a good crowd can do for players on the field and what an empty stadium can do also. I can accept being beaten. When you're not the best team on the field being beaten carries no shame. I don't think our guys are quitters and I don't think they deserve some of the treatment they get here. We may go out. We may play badly again at the worst time. OR we may start getting breaks and the ball might bounce our way, Detroit might lose again... and again, and we might find ourselves in a close game that can get us into the playoffs. That's when a crowd pulling for you can be the difference.

I woke up for the top of the ninth last night at 4:00 am and I thought Addison Reed looked very calm and very collected. The season's trials, tribulations, and even failures just might prove to be very valuable. The crowd was a big help to him, I'm sure.

Besides the drunken banter, I'm just happy we won a game. We lost the ability to control our own destiny the way we played. Now we just have to put the pressure on Detroit.

FWIW (and I post this every year), "destiny," by definition, cannot be controlled. It is pre-determined or pre-ordained. But anyway, I still believe we can do this. Gotta be within a game of Detroit when we go to Cleveland.

Hey, thanks.

Wait, I really mean that. Is there a 2nd teal for double sarcasm to cancel it out? This is too much to think about while hungover this morning...

This was a game which featured the key elements of good baseball: pitching (Floyd bent but did not break, Crain, Veal, & Reed were all good. Thornton will be excused for his walk) offense (Thanks to Youk, Alex, and Alexei for the 3 runs) and defense (making the plays that had to be made). About the only upsetting play was seeing Alex being doubled off from from first in the 8th but without Alex's bat, we don't win last night so I'll excuse Alex for that mental error.

I am enjoying every minute of this pennant race and it's great to see our Sox still battling. Just a few more hours to go until today's game and my heart is already racing. Keep on winning, White Sox!

PS: I forgot to mention earlier how great it was to see Robin smiling and congratulating each player individually as he came back to the dugout after the win last night. Great moments.

An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!
