    Do I really need to answer that? Our pitching is not coming thru, were leaving to many runners on base, and against either team if you play that kinda ball you are going to lose. Both the Red Sox and the Yanks are for real and you just cant make mistakes against either and expect to win.

    1. What Jager said.
    2. That's far from my only reason for disliking him.

    I said I have a lot of respect for the White Sox, and I do, but I have zero respect for Pierzynski.

    Not to slide 3 feet off the bag at the SS. There's a difference in taking out the SS that's at the bag and trying to take him out when he's 3 feet from the bag. That's dirty, and somehow the umps missed it and it cost the Sox a win.

    It was a very strange play in the 11th. The White Sox were currentley down 5-4 with the bases loaded. Joe Crede hit a fly ball to right field and was caught by Trot. Jermaine Dye did not tag up at 2nd and almost overan Ross Gload who was at 3rd who also did not tag up. Gload seemed very confused as he started towards home ran back to tag, ran foward again and then ran back.

    And A.J. did a very, very cheap slide into Alex Gonzalez. Pierzienski didnt even touch the 2nd base bag and instead basicly pushed Gonzalez when he was throwing the ball. It could have been a double play that ended the game but itstead prolonged the game.
    Thanks for the info. I was just throwing out what I'd heard elsewhere, trying to piece together everything.

    Anyway, I was told that Terry never protested the non-touching of the various bases, nor the cheap slide. I think he'd have gotten the attention of the umps (who were said to be fast asleep already) had he done that, and further removing any incentive to repeat this in later innings.

    Dye did not re-tag 3B when he was running home, but retreated due to Gload's horrible base running. Heck, I think he might have past Gload out, which would mean Dye should have been called out. Remember what happen to Lopez of Baltimore earlier this year when he was credit with a single even though he hitted the ball out of the park, but Tejada wasn't sure what was going on and Lopez past him out, which mean Lopez is out, even on a home run.

    What A.J. did was similar to what A-Rod did back in 04 ALCS, which was interference. A.J. should have been called out for interference and Cintron should have been called out due to A.J.'s interference.

    Also, I'd heard that AJ Pierzienski (spl?) made a cheap slide into 2B to break up the DP. Something he'd done with his hands, but I'm not sure what. Anyone see this?

    Anyway, I'll pass the donation cup around to see if we can share the wealth.

    Worst part is the Red Sox missed not one, but two calls that could have ended the game if they appealed it.
    The W-Sox invented new ways to lose last night, "dont know how we won it". Our first two batters in the lineup couldnt bunt for snot and we left so many on base in extra innings I felt like screaming, and , the terrible base-running. But McCarthy came out and pitched 4+ great innings and deserved the game ball on the CHGO side.

    I know Ive watched 19 inning games before but I cant remember when.

    Didn't they outright miss the entire string of events let alone not getting Dye for leaving early? I recall Remy mentioning that Dye was hesitating at third and that hesitation was overlooked by the guys on the field
