Agreed. Even though this seasons end was a disappointment, nothing compares to a beautiful summer evening at the old ballpark with a cold one or two. This holds true even if the baseball is being delivered to me on my very old transistor radio while soaking up a beautiful Michigan evening sitting on the back patio.

I'm proud of our team this year.


Last time I cried over the Sox was at the conclusion of the game on this day. It does not get more painful than what we experienced that day.

I would welcome Dan Johnson on next year's bench. Not based on tonight's performance, but because he has performed well in pinch hitting duties over the last month.

Yes, despite the September choke, at least the majority of the season was a success and we finally had professionalism in the dugout.

2011 seemed like a 6 month disappointment from start to finish, no energy, unprofessionalism, pissing on statues, twitter horsecrap, and leaving before the season ended to go to another team.

Fun summer, sad it's over.

I hope Hahn has the power to make changes as he sees fit. Time for Kenny to take a step back.

The last time I cried over the Sox was on this day. Being that my first memories of the Sox begin in 1989, this was personally the saddest end to a season in my lifetime. They broke my heart this year.

I wouldn't. He can't play the field, or just 1B. No room for that on the roster with Dunn and Konerko there.

I was but a wee little zygote that day.

I was hoping Kenny would maybe become a special assistant and work with Buddy Bell on the minor league system.

When the Rays finished off the Sox in '08 was pretty damn depressing for me.

I remember asking myself, who knows the next time this team will reach the playoffs,

and I'm still wondering 4 years later .

Thank you White Sox for a MUCH better season than I expected. Proud to be a lifetime fan.

Baseball has always been such a big part of my life. Growing up in Michigan, all my buddies were and still are Tiger fans. Because of them, I'll root for them in the playoffs.

The season ending is hard because to me other sports just don't have the same appeal. I enjoy college football (Go Blue) but baseball has woven itself into my life and that of our country that when the season ends, I view it as a personal loss.

My love of the game was best expressed by James Earl Jones.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SB16il97yw Check out all the old Sox uniforms in the background.

Nice to end the season with a win. Any predictions on who stays or goes?
I hope AJ returns. Dunn had a great bounce back year, but all those K's wore very thin. Rios was good, even during the teams terrible end. The defense was a great surprise. To quote Maxwell Smart "we missed it by that much".

Best wishes to all. Will check in now and then. Pray for spring.

The 93 ALCS for me. Though this season ranks up there for me too now that the season is over and the bitter disappointment is setting in...

Edit: Also, I hope the Tigers get crushed in the playoffs...!!

I wonder if there's been another major leaguer who hit 3 HRs in a season, and all of them in the same game?
