Just thought I spark up a thread by saying The Sox are winning but that dont matter cause the Indians are out.. And the sox better play like they did in the first half of the year in the playoffs or we are going to be out in the first round.

Sox have to play the white sox first. its going to be a tough one to choice for the AL for National league im going with Cardinals with a close second of the Astros.. It will be a great series for them both in the NLCS

I like that but I dont think atlanta will get a win at all. And the Sox's game is going to be a 5 game series. Depending on whose hitting will over top the defense then that will be your champ of the alcs. Because if the Bo Sox beat the white sox then the BoSox have a better chance at taking the alcs

Garuntee that the White Sox take it all this year everyone has been doubting them sayin theyre doing bad and then they finish with the best record in the AL and since no one thinks theyll win itll definately come as a surprise to many that this is gonna happen

Yanks vs. Angels- Angels in 5
Red Sox vs. White Sox- White Sox in 4
San Diego vs. St.Louis- St.Louis in 3
Houston vs. Atlanta - Atlanta in 4

Angels vs. White Sox- White Sox in 7

Oh I dont have doubt for the White Sox.. IF and thats a big IF the red sox do somehow manage to get by them then the Bo Sox will take the alcs.

But if the White sox put up for 3 games against the indians who had all of their starters playing each game and the white sox had all minor AAA and back up playing agains the indians and the sox still swept them each game than that shows something..
and Indians busted their ass to make their way to the wildcard this year.

St Louis wins Game 1, 8-5. going into the ninth it was 8-1 but the padres fought back and had the go ahead run at the plate, but roman herandez struck out. Ended up being a good game.

Hopefully this is a sign of the quality of games the rest of the postseason will give us

Get this: My friend in Iowa calls me last night, and can hardly even talk he is so excited. He is a big Cardinals fan, anyway his boss comes to him yesterday at work and asks him if he wants two tickets for free to todays game. Of course he took them and I have yet to talk to him today but thats not the end of the story. He also tells him he can get St. Louis World Series tix if they make it. Why doesnt stuff like this ever happen to me? The best I can do is get Red Wings tix for tomarrow for $100.00 standing room only. I wont complain too much it is the Red Wing and my first game.:thumbsup:

Like i said before both the sox's defence are tough but it has to do with pitching and hitting and last night hitting and pitching was up there for the white sox.. and tonight the bosox picked up their hitting but pitching died out in the 4th or 5th.!

Yea I know what the red sox have done in the past but i mean they were definately counting on winning that game and the White Sox stole it from them so I like the white sox in 4 as ive said before and my predictions are still looking good at least i think:thumbsup:

Chicago's pitching has looked great, especially the bullpen. They are the team to beat in the AL

Great series. We discussed it in the other thread about Game 2. I am happy for the ChiSox. So much better than the Yankees or the Angels (I don't dislike them, but they just won in 2002).

Ok...so check out this crazy tid bit of info...

In 1917, the Red Sox won the world series and in 1918, the White Sox won it.

The Red Sox won the world series in 2004, and the White Sox may win it in 2005.

The odds of that happening have been said to be 18 million to 1 by the broadcasters during one of the games.

Crazy huh?
