Default 1993 ALCS versus Toronto

The '83 White Sox got a lot of recognition this year, but there hasn't been much love for the '93 team. Here is a recap of their playoff series against Toronto. If it wasn't for 2005 this video would bother me.

That's tough, but I loved that team.

Toronto owned McDowell.

I always blamed Lamont's managing for that series against Toronto.

'94 team seemed better but the work stoppage killed that.

This has been mentioned before but Toronto knew what McDowell and Fernandez were throwing. I don't remember if those two were tipping their pitches or if Toronto was able to pick up some signs but that was the big reason why the Jays were able to hit those guys and of course, McDowell and Fernandez lost all four games.

Disappointing end, but the electric atmosphere at those ALCS games is what started to lead 9-year old me towards being a Sox fan.

I spent four hours trying to get through to Ticketmaster the morning the ALCS games went on sale; ended up with two tickets to Game 7, which of course never happened.

That was it for Jack McDowell. He was average from Game 1 on until he retired. From 1988 to 1993 he was 81-49. From 1994 to 1999 he was 46-38.

Yup, some of the bench moves, or lack of them in certain situations had me ....

I've heard that Roberto Alomar picked up some subtle things McDowell was doing to tip his pitches. Fernandez, I'm surprised to hear because he actually pitched well that series but had hard luck, if I remember right. I recall Pasqua dropping a routine throw to 1B that gave the Jays unearned runs early in GM 2 that was the difference in the game.

I'll never forget being pulled out of school in seventh grade to head to game 2, and listening to the score on the drive to the ballpark talking about mj retiring
