As a lifelong Red Sox fan, I'm stopping by to say best wishes to both teams.

I'm rooting for the White Sox purely for sentimental reasons- it's a Sox thing. Besides- The White Sox last won the (1917) year before WE last won (1918) back in the last century- so they're DUE!

Fellow Bosox fan as well, but I'm rooting for Clemens to wind up his career with a W.S. for his home town.

Dan Duquette was a horse's ass.

I'm a Red Sox fan, and a baseball fan (which means I keep
following the playoffs even after my team is eliminated). I _like_ both teams but in most cases I cheer for the AL (except if the AL team is the Yanks!). So I will probably cheer a bit more for the Chi-Sox but if Houston wins (fave team of
Bush 41 & Barbara Bush), so be it.

Each time has a league pennant to be proud of. One will emerge with the ultimate prize, though.

As of right now only 5 teams have never been to the World
Series: Montreal/Washington Nationals (the old Wash.
Senators won a Series though didn't they?), Colorado,
Tampa Bay, Seattle, and that _other_ team from Texas.

Chi-Sox--unbelievable pitching. 4 straight complete games
in the ALCS! Bullpen only pitched two-thirds of an inning in the whole series!

The Boston Red Sox reign officially ends some time in
the next week: Wed. night (a sweep? unlikely) or Fri,
Sat, or Sunday of next weekend. Will it be the go-go
Sox or the former Colt45s?

no problem--if there isn't one, start it...

What could have been: "It's a cold, raw, rainy night here in Boston. 48 degrees and feels more like 40--starting to
rain a bit heavier now. Not sure if we're gonna get this
game in, folks..."

No,that isn't Nancy Faust on the organ (I think she went to Wurlitzer Heaven a couple years ago) but someone is carrying on her tradition of appropriate tunes; as the Astros were being introduced he/she played everything from "I've Been
Working on the Railroad" (not sure what that was for), to
"Yellow Rose of Texas" (got that), and when "MisterRoger"
Clemens was introduced, "It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood..."

51 degrees in Chicago and chance of rain tonight and
tomorrow. Meanwhile it's a GIVEN that the roof will be closed when they go to Houston. They want the crowd noise to be at a max!

My money's been on the Sox. They just seemed to be on a roll. Let's see if they kept their momentum during their days off.

5 minutes in and already I've had to mute the TV feed. Anyone have a good radio feed? Usually MLB blocks all but pay outlets.

Try and get a tape of the 2002 Salt Lake City winter olympics opening ceremonies...The Mormon Tabernacle Choir rendered the most spine tingling rendition I have ever heard. The time and place in context of course added much to the moment.

Wonder if they'll have a live rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame by a certain jazz-rock band that named themselves after the city? After all, it is "Saturday...in the

...and may our RED Sox be back in the World Series NEXT year! :o)

If you have a stereo or portable radio nearby try your local ESPN radio affiliate. If the one in your city doesn't have a strong signal (which is the case in Boston) there are some distant stations that do well, like WBAL 1090/Baltimore

I'm glad Jeff Bagwell is the DH for the Astros tonight. It may backfire - hard to believe Jason Lane isn't in the lineup - but for just one game it can't be fatal to the Stros chances. Bagwell DESERVED this treatment and, I think, will come through.

Yes, Josh did an absolutely incredible rendition of the Nat'l Anthem. I would've pinged you immediately, but I didn't know he was doing it. I almost missed it myself, I had just gotten off the phone...

Wonder if the Red Sox will wind up with Brian Cashman as GM, and Theo Epstein goes to Yankees or another team that needs
a GM?

Where will some Red Sox wind up...Manny says he wouldn't mind playing for Ariz., Anaheim, or even back in Cleveland

New schedule out. Red Sox get to play NL East including Washington Nationals, and Pedro and the Mets.

I am normally inclined to root for th A.L. team when I dont have a horse in the race. But if Clemens hits Everett square between the eyes with a 94 mile per hour heater I will pull for the stro's

Usually I can't get ESPN radio at home. Think I'll try fiddling with the aerial - with this rain maybe I can catch a distant signal.

Clearly most Freepers will be rooting for the Astros.

Astros are from a Bush state -- The Sox went for Kerry.

Astros have every player carry his own weight -- The Sox use the "social welfare" clause (the DH).

Houston aligns with Senators Cornyn and Hutchison -- The Sox have Obama and Durbin.

Need I say more?

Real Freepers root for Houston. I can't see any other option. :^)
