   1. Maury Brown Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:12 PM (#1697797)
I hear there's a game today. What is this thing... "World Series"?
   2. Pawapuro Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:35 PM (#1697807)
Maybe I'm blind, but I haven't seen a single WS prediction anywhere. What's the consensus - Astros in 7?
   3. Maury Brown Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:39 PM (#1697812)
Astros in 6.
   4. AstrosFan Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:50 PM (#1697821)
Top ten likely Fox themes for Game 1...

1. Both starting pitchers are ex-Yankees.
2. Everett and Everett were traded for each other and both were ex- Red Sox.
3. Bagwell was an ex-Red Sock.
4. Dye has finally recovered from that injury suffered against the Yankees.
5. Flashback to Rowand's spectacular plays against the Yankees a few months ago.
6. Comparison of the "White Sox Curse" against the Red Sox curse.
7. Hom much will Konerko get in free agency from the Yankees.
8. Flashbacks to Timo's gaffs and more generally the subway series. Back in the era when great teams reached the WS.
9. Oswalt is the only active pitcher to start a no-hitter in Yankee stadium. That means he's a great pitcher.
10. Dan Wheeler learned everything he knows about pitchng from John Franco this March and April.
   5. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:55 PM (#1697828)
By my count, only four HOFers have won a World Series with the White Sox -- Ed Walsh, Eddie Collins, Ray Schalk and Red Faber. I think I'm going to pay them a visit today at Cooperstown.

I hope it's White Sox in 6, if not fewer games. Any elimination game would be tough to take.
   6. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: October 22, 2005 at 03:57 PM (#1697829)
By the way, since I haven't said it yet, congratulations to the Astros fans here. May the best team win.
   7. Maury Brown Posted: October 22, 2005 at 04:02 PM (#1697838)
Predictions on the number of complete games by starting pitchers we'll see in the Series?
   8. Hang down your head, Tom Foley Posted: October 22, 2005 at 04:05 PM (#1697843)
Oswalt is the only active pitcher to start a no-hitter in Yankee stadium. That means he's a great pitcher.

I was going to say something about David Wells being active, but that's a philosophical question.

Also, I was at game five of the ALCS, and I may or may not have punched an Angel fan in the face. I hope she's ok.
   9. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: October 22, 2005 at 04:08 PM (#1697848)
I'm gonna say one by each team. I'm going to do my best to not question Ozzie's handling of the pitching staff, given how it worked out last series. But if Jose Contreras comes to the plate with the bases loaded in the 8th inning of a 1-1 tie...

...well, he still might be better than T.I.M.O. But I think you get what I'm saying.
   10. AstrosFan Posted: October 22, 2005 at 04:10 PM (#1697852)
A toss up btw zero and one. The Astros won't have any and it'll be tough for the Sox to throw one in a National League park.
   11. AstrosFan Posted: October 22, 2005 at 04:14 PM (#1697858)

Oh, I meant against the Yankees but wrote in Yankee stadium. Good catch.
   12. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 22, 2005 at 05:36 PM (#1697921)
White Sox in 5.

I still, primarily out of stubbornness, maintain that the Astros aren't very good.
   13. Daryn Posted: October 22, 2005 at 06:30 PM (#1697968)
1. buehrle in game 2. sox in 6.

go to the dialed in blog, there's a thread there. i said sox in 6, and i'm sticking with it.

i agree with the prediction, but not the reasoning.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

just had to log in real quick to say good luck to both teams and their fans. i'm sad i'm missing the atmosphere back home, it would have been a lot fun to be out in chicago to watch the game.
   15. Urban Faber Posted: October 22, 2005 at 07:02 PM (#1698002)
I still can't believe the Sox are in it, and I'm sure Astros fans feel the same way after finally making it this far. Let's hope it's a good Series, and go Sox.
   16. SM in DC Posted: October 22, 2005 at 07:32 PM (#1698019)
One thing is for certain, we will see some history in this series.

1. A Central Division team will win the World Series for the first time since realignment.
2. The Astros will win their first title ever (and Houston's first title in any major sports since the Rockets in '96) or;
3. The White Sox will win their first title since 1917 (meaning they will have won a World Series more recently than they threw one for the first time since 1919). It will be Chicago's first title of any kind since 1998 (Da Bulls).
   17. Tom Poquette Posted: October 22, 2005 at 08:09 PM (#1698042)
How is this weather going to affect Clemens and his back? I remember Randy Johnson's start in the cold...could the same happen here?
   18. Joe Bivens Will Take a Steaming Dump Posted: October 22, 2005 at 09:16 PM (#1698082)
I took the Astros, 50 to win 60. Actually, 100 to make 120.
   19. Halofan Posted: October 22, 2005 at 09:23 PM (#1698092)
ASTROS IN 5

MVP: CLEMENS

Over/Under - Bad umpiring calls that Chisox fans will lament as denying them the series: 2.5
(I'm taking the Unders)
   20. Urban Faber Posted: October 22, 2005 at 10:00 PM (#1698107)
OK, I'm outta here to watch the game. Go Sox!
   21. 44magnum Posted: October 22, 2005 at 10:04 PM (#1698116)
My only hope is all 7 games go extra innings. I don't care for either team, but I turn into one depressed dude after the last pitch of the season is thrown.
   22. PhillyBooster Posted: October 22, 2005 at 10:10 PM (#1698122)
Astros in five.

Their offense is better than it seems. Their pitching is better, too -- at least the pitchers who will get most of the innnings in this series.
   23. Robert S. Posted: October 22, 2005 at 10:11 PM (#1698125)
I still, primarily out of stubbornness, maintain that the Astros aren't very good.

I'm not convinced either team is. Still, like most people, I anticipate a close, competitive Series. There's more than enough All-Stars and HOFers on the field to keep me interested.

Go Sox!
   24. Rafael Bellylard: The Grinch of Orlando. Posted: October 22, 2005 at 10:37 PM (#1698158)
I think it's going 7, neither team seems likely to dominate the other.
   25. strong silence Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:11 PM (#1698194)
The 2005 World Series is here!!!

Woooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooo!

Mariner Nation wishes both teams and their fans good luck!

(Ok we aren't that big...call us Mariner Municipality.)
   26. Richard Gadsden Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:13 PM (#1698196)
I'm hoping it goes six minimum, as the only games I'm likely to see are 1 and 6,

I said Sox in 5 and I don't see a reason to change. I think they'll lose the game by being outplayed. I don't think this team will make any mental errors.

Moses, what games do you think the Sox will lose?
   28. Artie Ziff Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:15 PM (#1698199)
While posting here a couple of years it seems funny I have never seen any Houston or White Sox fans. Now they are everywhere. Winning has a way of making fans pick teams. I think this is a no lose Series for baseball fans. One of two certain Hall Of Famers, Clemens or Thomas, will earn his first championship in their respective leagues. I personally want both of them to get it, but obviously that cannot happen. As long as it goes seven it will be a great one. Time to find it on the radio.
   29. Bull Pain Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:15 PM (#1698200)
Bagwell DHing at batting 6th. I wish the Big Hurt could play too.
   30. strong silence Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:17 PM (#1698202)
Here is a question:

Are there any written rules pertaining to the game on the field which are rarely, if ever, enforced?

I'm aware of the Pine Tar incident but I don't know if the rule has been changed since then.
   31. rLr Is King Of The Romans And Above Grammar Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:17 PM (#1698203)

I can only see 3, 6, and 7. So 'm rooting for it to go all the way.

Galloro and JRE have been pretty hardcore.

Leave it up to Fox to make up a fake curse for the White Sox to get more ratings.

I'm getting highlights of the LDSes and LCSes as build-up, and I get MLBI coverage instead of Fox.

Yes, it's insane that the UK gets better coverage of the World Series than the USA, but, hey, we only get it on the back of the US military.
   48. VG Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:34 PM (#1698234)
I'm glad I put the local Sox pre-game radio program on.
   49. strong silence Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:35 PM (#1698235)
Well done intro by Fox.

Houston Fans: What would a World Series Championship mean for the city of Houston?

Quit saying White Sox Nation. I'm less than an hour from the park, Jeanne, and I'm not averse to harming you.

Isn't that one a judgment call?
   54. Halofan Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:39 PM (#1698243)
If the curse of the Bambino was for having been traded, wouldn't the curse afflicting the White Sox be for allowing an innocent man to be banned - and since that is a much rarer and more severe punishment, wouldn't it mean like an 8600 year curse or thereabouts?
   55. 6 - 4 - 3 Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:40 PM (#1698245)
Well this certainly sucks. Why the frak is Fox even bothering to do a pregame?
   56. strong silence Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:40 PM (#1698246)
Congrats on making the series Houston.

For perspective, if the Mariners matched the drought that Houston suffered, the Mariners wouldn't make the World Series until...........2020.

My oh my!!!

They had some fake Joe Jackson complaining that Old Man Comiskey wouldn't pay the players, so they had no choice, and they'd do it all again. Then they had some fat guy playing Bill Veeck, talking about his plans for baseball on the moon. Really, words can't do it justice. It's the worst thing I've ever seen.
   58. strong silence Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:43 PM (#1698250)
Yikes.

I'm happy to have avoided never-ending display of Jeter's mug on the boob tube had the Yankees won.

But now we'll have an excess of Roger Clemens - an all-time troglodyte.
   59. Mark Edward Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:45 PM (#1698252)
So what time is this supposed to start? Certainly not 7:30, FOX doesn't have that much filler...

And I agree that the opening was horrible. A horrible joke.

That doesn't sound so far-fetched to me. That team has been good for a very brief period of time.

Foxtastic!

Was that Bill Veeck? I was hoping that it was supposed to be somebody working for him, because that was absolutely terrible. Thank God he was sitting at a desk, or otherwise Fox would've gave him two functioning legs.

Yellow Rose of Texas for the Houston lineup, and Mr. Roger's Neighborhood for Clemens introduction.

Keith, I thought that was you for a second down on the field. Then I realized the one other person in the world who has a Joe Borchard jersey is, in fact, Joe Borchard.

   73. Mark Edward Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:52 PM (#1698268)
Josh Groban's great, would've like Wayne Messmer, Groban's a good choice.

Or Jeff Tweedy or Dennis DeYoung, if you want to go with a (relatively) local guy.
   74. CWS Keith plans to [omitted] at [omitted] Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:53 PM (#1698270)

I really wish they'd just have one of the opera singers that they usually have for Hawks games to do the anthem. Those guys rock!

That is a good summary of Fox's introduction by GMWFPLD.

I liked the old clips of the wacky stunts.

30 Years Ago Today:
The Cincinnati Reds won the greatest World Series of my generation.

That is a standard that can't be matched. So my expectations for this Fall Classic are:

1. Average, at minimum, umpiring. No bad calls which overshadow the play on the field.

2. Redemption for prior suckitude for Bagwell and Biggio.

3. No more Bzzzzzzzzzzzz. It has to stop. You ripped off the Killer B's idea, Houston. It's worse than the Tomahawk Chop.

4. No controversy.

5. Low beer prices.

6. Some Lou Piniella would be nice.

Then, if those things happen, I will be overjoyed to see:

7. 7 games

8. A great fielding play in a Close and Late situation.

9. A Home Run from a rarely-used bench player. Does anyone have a favorite bench player I should root for?

10. No annoying questions about baseball from my girlfriend.

11. No gratuitous mug shots of celebrities. (Thank you Dodgers and Angels.)
   77. Rafael Bellylard: The Grinch of Orlando. Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:55 PM (#1698273)
My wife and I have a bet going. Once the game starts, we're keeping track of how many times the Yankees or the Red Sox are mentioned.

The over/under is 25. I have the over.
   78. Greg Maddux School of Reflexive Profanity Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:56 PM (#1698274)
I want the Cubs to get their act together, if only to hear Wayne Messmer sing the anthem at a World Series game.

Secret Weapon! It'd be his first of the year.

Err -- Pablo Ozuna.
   80. 6 - 4 - 3 Posted: October 22, 2005 at 11:57 PM (#1698276)
Wasn't sure which team I'd root for--until the national anthem. That was so fraking lame. I'm going to adopt the Astros for the next ten days or whatever.

Not necessarily a favorite, but a Pablo Ozuna homer would certainly bring his nickname full circle. It'd be something if he was saving his Secret Weaponitude for this.

Fat chance. I'm sure we'll be treated to various cast members of Fox sitcoms in a very spontaneous fashion.

It would be fraking awesome if Biggio drives in a winning run in the decisive game with a HBP.

Not that I care which team you root for, but I'm not sure whether it's the home team or MLB and FOX (the network that brings us "American Idol") that picks the anthem singers. Just a thought.

It would be fraking awesome if Biggio drives in a winning run in the decisive game with a HBP.

It would be even better if THAT was the time the HBP was overruled because he didn't try moving out of the way.

HBP - that would be the worst ending! Think of the controversy! Think of the children!

That reminds me of an answer to my earlier question in #30.

Purposefully getting hit by a pitch is rarely, if ever, called. I hope it doesn't become a factor in any game.

Are there any written rules pertaining to the game on the field which are rarely, if ever, enforced?

7.07
If, with a runner on third base and trying to score by means of a squeeze play or a steal, the catcher or any other fielder steps on, or in front of home base without possession of the ball. . .the pitcher shall be charged with a balk, the batter shall be awarded first base on the interference and the ball is dead.


The catcher NEVER waits until he has "possession of the ball" before blocking home plate.

Roomer™ are ready to go.

though a small household deity would be a pleasant thing to win.

My cat already thinks he assumes that role.

I hope the prize is good, because you are totally going to win that bet.

Loser has to wash all three vehicles tomorrow.

Craig Biggio AND Joe Crede in the same series.

Is Vegas taking bets on this?

Remember, it's all right to cry.

But, there is no crying in beisball.

Ergo, there will be crying, but after the games are played.

I am sticking to my pick of the Sox in 7.

All I really want is <strike>everything</strike> plenty of genuinely well played games with drama.

C'mon, FOX, let them throw the first pitch so I can head out to the bar.

Hmm... If I were Phil Garner, I'd have Bagwell hitting second rather than Taveras.

Play ball!

WOOOHOOOOOOOO!

9. A Home Run from a rarely-used bench player. Does anyone have a favorite bench player I should root for?

Secret Weapon! It'd be his first of the year.

Err -- Pablo Ozuna.


Ok. PO and I are tight for the next 10 days.
