    So what are these Sox doing this year, exocizing the ghost of Shoeless Joe?

      Wasn't any worse than the "Ball 4" call for Burke in the 9th. He eventually scored the tying run. C_l_e_a_r_l_y a strike just above the belt.

      Best team won -- again.

      GO SOX!

        Re - Dye "hit by pitch"

        (a) It (and the Pierzynski episode in previous games) is a conspiracy by the umpires to get MLB to institute instant replay (and hire more umpires to officiate it) But then, why this call rather than some of the other very close calls that could have gone the other way (like Iguchi being picked off first, or call a balk on Pettitte's move to first)?

        (b) Personally, I think the call is consistent with umpires in both leagues the last year or so getting very protective of batters when the pitchers throw high and inside. Quall digs himself a hole with 2 men on, goes full on Dye, then comes high and inside. Close enough to give to the batter.

              CWS-

              They've won 14 out of their last 15 (9-1 in the playoffs).

              Now one is playing better. Period.

              Oh, and no team in MLB has played in more and won more 1-run games.

              It's not over for Houston. They've still got Oswalt set for 3 (and 7, if they can stretch it that far).

              Not sure if Lidge has been charged with arson yet.

                What would be the motivation for giving the White Sox "The Call"?

                To please all 300 of their rabid fans?

                  Exactly. If it was the Cubs, you might have a case. But I don't see MLB giving the White Sox (3rd most popular baseball team in Chicago) "the call."

                  Go Sox!

                    yeah, but of the three, they have the best chance of winning the World Series in the next 5 years.....then comes the Kane County Cougars...then maybe the loveable losers...

                      Yes, but give them this one and then we can go back to ignoring them for another 80 years or so.

                        Judging by the ratings, you've already started.

                          So true.

                            Hey, I don't care if I'm the ONLY White Sox fan, it still means as much to me, no, make that more to me, than any (place your favorite team's name here) championship. So the ratings don't match a Yankees vs. Dodgers or a Bosox vs. Cardinals? I'm sorry. No wait, no I'm not, I'm enjoying every minute of it.
