White Sox take the Central. The Twins behind a second-half Blackburn won't be able to win this on the road.

See Twinks? This is what happens when you can't win a series against KC at home during the final week. This is also what happens when you blow a number of games against Seattle.

Penguins/Red Wings did OK in the USA ratings-wise, I think. It was the best-rated Stanley Cup Final in a long time. But you're right, usually the ratings are very poor in the US for the SC Final.

What time is the game tomorrow night? I have Rosh Hashanah dinner at 7PM. If the game starts at 8 then I should be able to see the whole thing. I'll be rooting for the Twins. I hate Ozzie Guillen.

NYYDragoon
09-30-08, 03:37 PM
Nick Blackburn was one of my favorite pitchers during the first half, but he's been dreadful since the ASB. A comparison:

1st half:
7-5
3.65 ERA
~ 1.27 WHIP

2nd half:
4-5
4.98 ERA
~ 1.54 WHIP

Yeah... And also, he has a 5.67 ERA against the Chisox with a 7.20 in 3 starts (2 losses, 1 ND, 15 innings) at the Cell.

Now you can see why I'm not too optimistic.

THEBOSS84

AJ, do you think the Abreu comebacker off his head has anything to do with his second half #'s? I would guess that happened in mid to late June.

AJ, do you think the Abreu comebacker off his head has anything to do with his second half #'s? I would guess that happened in mid to late June.That incident was on June 1st. Between then and the break he went 3-2 (but he only gave up 2 runs across 7 innings in that last loss). Also, the wins were really strong efforts (1.35 ERA across 20 innings). So no, I don't think the comebacker had any real effect. I honestly think he just exhausted; it is his first season in the majors, after all.

I've been searching all day to see if anyone was going to broadcast it. I thought WGN in Chicago would, but when I looked at my TV Guide for 7:30, it wasn't going to be on. Finally I found it listed on TBS, the Ted Turner Broadcasting Network. Thanks Ted.

I have NO DOUBT in my mind that the TWINS will win this game. They have already destroyed the White Sox starting pitcher during the season and tonight he's going on 3 days rest. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: That's for you, Homer Hawk Harrelson, After tonight, the White Sox "THEY GONE!"

Nah, he was actually talking about the World Baseball Classic and how he was the best American closer and that he'd close games for the US team...which is absolutely true, I think. I guess Lidge has a case again too.

Nah, he was actually talking about the World Baseball Classic and how he was the best American closer and that he'd close games for the US team...which is absolutely true, I think. I guess Lidge has a case again too.

What a great game by Danks. Congrats to White Sox fans, enjoy it :) Ooops! Just consider me a disgruntled Yankee fan looking for something to nitpick. Yes, it was a great game by Danks and an almost great game by the Minnesota pitcher.

Left a change-up I believe..and I dont think its landed yet
ooh, I'll have to make sure to catch the highlights. :D

Tough break for minnesota...I've seen Danks pitch where he's completely nasty..sounds like Blackburn pitched pretty well too...

I think if I'm Tampa, I'd prefer to play Chicago over Minnesota...

The White Sox looked like a real contender. Konerko, Thome, Dye, Quentin, Griffey and Swisher are all legitimate sluggers. They also have three legitimately excellent starters.

I'm glad Minnesota lost, if only because they would have choked in the playoffs anyway. Something tells me Thome wouldn't have been able to square up that meatball if it had been thrown by Santana.

Congrats to the White Sox for not giving up when it looked like they were cooked.

Great game, though the dive was a bit unnecessary.


Thome and Griffey finally back in the playoffs. So nice to see two class acts finally get back.

Thome, no doubt. My favorite non-Yankee of this era.

Griffey? I had had enough of his smirking, strutting, self-important act by 1992. Sixteen years later, he is still definitely NOT a player I could ever root for.

Honestly, hats off to the Twins. They had a great season despite losing Johan Santana, Liriano for quite some time, and Tori Hunter as well.

This is the first time since 1906 that both Chicago baseball teams have made the postseason.

This is the first time since 1906 that both Chicago baseball teams have made the postseason.

1st time in Major League history that a team beat 3 different teams on the last 3 games of their season.

This is the first time since 1906 that both Chicago baseball teams have made the postseason.And there are two Los Angeles teams in the postseason also ... well, one with an asterisk.

And there are two New York teams that finished with a winning percentage higher than two of the teams in the postseason!

Great game last night but I'm still not sold on my Sox. The only way we're going deep in the playoffs is if our starters hold up and go at least seven innings. Our pen is too inconsistent and prone to implosions.

Dammit. I just saw Vazquez starts game one against the Rays. UGH!

Yeah, about Vasquez in the playoffs...:(
