Hey, I didn't come into this thread harboring any hostility. I was just stating, hey they are playing great ball so who cares how they are getting it done


Well, some people here obviously care about it, enough to make a topic on it and discuss it. The media is misrepresenting the Sox, and it's just irritating after a while. People were actually discussing it like you do on a message board, yet you come in and contribute absolutely nothing to the discussion except act like you're better than everyone in here because you don't have as many posts. Oh yes, you have a life, and no one else on this entire site does. Right. Yeah, you're cool. :-t

I haven't been involved in this thread--just read through it now--but nuggets, I don't think you and I are reading the same posts. The other guys were making fun of the announcers getting things wrong all the time, and davus came in swinging. If you ask me, he's the only one that's come off as an a-hole in this thread... an awfully immature one at that.

Apparently you didn't read the thread very well because I swung back after I was made fun of for saying the White Sox are playing great, don't be jealous.

Hi. I don't know you.

By comparision, Boston last year in post season hit only 18 hrs, 1 every 29 abs.


Update: 32 of 66 runs by homers. Blums hr tonight was like Pods, the difference.

That is correct. I could have you all banned with a snap of my finger, but I'm not that kinda guy. I know you are all having a bad month because the Sox keep winning wit da smallball game.

Does anyone else think it is a little funny that this post came from someone who has over 1700 posts in the last 6 months? :-b
