"As a Cardinal fan, I noticed that the Astro's did NOT come out of the dugout to congratulate the Sox. Astro's are a "classless" organization."

Most ridiculous thing I've read on this thread, and there have been some duesies. In my 35+ years of watching the WS I've never once seen the losing team come out to congratulate the winning team.

This isn't the NHL.

Huh? Backe pitched 7 scoreless innings.

Chicago won the series, so let it go.

I think Uribe's two terrific go-all-out plays in the ninth exemplify this effort! What a way to end it!!!!!!!

"Let's not have this thread degenerate."

My comment was focused more on the MLB front office than any team.

I really like baseball, just not the people running the show.

Yep, Backe pitched brilliantly.

Garner's doing to be second-guessed tomorrow bigtime. (I believe Backe's pitch count was less than 100 when Garner got out the hook, and he still had serious stuff).

No question, the ChiSox were head and shoulders the better team in this Series. If it had been the best of 15, I believe the Sox would've won another 4 to sweep.

Congratualations, and good night

So the Red and White Sox curses lasted several decades before ending. This should send a serious message to all Yankees and Mets fans that until she's out of office, their countdown clock to the end of the Hillary curse won't even start.

Every time I visit my Chicago area relatives (Sox fans all) during the summer, we go to see the Sox.

Last time I was there, I told them that next time I wanted to see the Cubs play and go to a game at Wrigley.

My stunned nephews stared at me, until one broke the silence by saying, "I thought you liked to watch baseball."

I don't see very many Stros games during the year, living here in Connecticut, but I've been very impressed with what I've seen so far. I really like Brandon Backe... he's not only a very good pitcher, but he's got a lot of spunk. So cool to see him in the dugout clapping and joining in with the crowd's cheers. That's not something I've seen very often in MLB dugouts.

We'll see the Stros next post-season, for sure... ;-)

Without a doubt, the White Sox were the best team in baseball. They just steamrolled over everyone this postseason. 11-1 with 8 straight wins to close it out? That speaks for itself.

Congrats on your team's win!

They have a number of potential free agents. Larry Walker is retiring, the free agents are Matt Morris, Mark Grudzielanick, Reggie Sanders, Abraham Nunez and Julian Tavarez.

Backe lets em down again

If you had watched the game, you wouldn't have made such an idiotic statement. Backe held the Astros scoreless and pitched the game of his life tonight.

Yeah, and he pulled Backe with 2 outs to pinch hit Bagwell in the hope that Bagwell would pull a homer (or even a hit) out of his a$$. That's OK. He had the least effective reliever of the series in Lidge ready to go out and lose another one (which Lidge did brilliantly).

If Garner was gonna pinch-hit someone, he should have pinch-hit Everett...for the entire series.

Hillary will probably announce she was a Sox fan (when her favorite NY teams were out of the race).

Yeah, just unbelievable. They sure beat up on my Red Sox a bunch of times this year, too... I think that's why I found it so tough to cheer for them in this post season.

Congrats to the Sox and their fans. As an Indians fan, it's good to see a team from our division win it.

Notice the prominence of the much-maligned Central Division in both leagues this year. As a Midwesterner--Chicago native living in St. Louis, also have lived in Minneapolis--I like that.

4 games to 0 doesn't sound good but let me tell you this Houston team was good, very good. That show you how good the White Sox were in this series. Again, Congratulations to all the Sox fans.
