    Sorry about that. I feel better now.

    This team was reminiscent of the old Yankee teams from the late 90s, with great pitching performances and clutch hitting.


    Wishful thinking that he will be going to the METS... do you really think after all he has done this year Jerry Reinsdorf will let him go?! You must be high on something... And I said IF he keeps playing like he as been the past two years... 40+ homers, 100+ RBIs...
    Sorry about that... now I feel better.

One more thing, if Konerko keeps playing the way he is... there is a hall of fame player for you. Have a nice day.
    Fine, I guess the 88 Dodgers were a great team. (I'm a Dodger fan, but aside from an incredible season from Orel, and a limping trot by Kirk Gibson, wouldn't call them great that year) The Wild Card Marlins of a few years ago? 69 Mets? 1990 Reds? All won the World Series, but none I would consider "great."

    Did any of those teams have the four best pitchers in the league that year??? Did they have the best record that season in MLB??? Didnt think so...

    Or did any of those teams win all but ONE game in the playoffs??? And this Sox team would have smoked any of those teams that you mentioned and a lot more World Series teams of the past... Defense and pitching make GREAT teams.

    What are basing "four best pitchers" on? Statically, they weren't 1-4 in either ERA or Wins??

    I was going to clarify that cause I thought you might take it this way... You could argue the fact they are 4 of the best in the league and I know many people would agree... and like I said... only one loss in the playoffs... 4 complete games in a row... Great pitching right there. How come you did not argue any of my other points??? Could it be because you can't???

    Yes, I believe the 69 Mets lost just one. The 1990 Reds lost two.

    edit: I didn't answer, because you had inserted that after I began my earlier reply, hence it wasn't quoted.

    Fifty, sixty, seventy years later, people still know of DiMaggio, Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, Berra. Thirty years later, people know Rose, Bench, Morgan. Those were "great" teams. Thirty years from now, will anyone remember who was on the 2005 White Sox?

    Good team.
    Well they set records only the Yankees ever matched, at a fraction of the salaries !

    Insertion, too much time on your hands ?
