Lidge Earns Loss Number 3 as Chicago Completes the Big Sweep
Wednesday, October 26, 2005

Baseball season is over, folks, and if you’re a Houston fan, it’s over too soon. Chicago shut down the very defeated-looking (even before they lost) Astros tonight 1-0 and can now hang a World Series Banner in their park for the first time in 88 years. Unlike last night’s fourteen inning decathlon, the final game of the series was quick and seemed to have been decided before “play ball!” was even shouted. Perhaps they were tired and frustrated after last night’s game, but the Astros played tonight as though they did not have a slightest chance of winning. They did manage five hits, but stranded an embarrassing nine runners on base, including wasting an opportunity in the sixth when they had the bases loaded. Lidge, who pitched incredibly throughout the season, was responsible for the only run in the game and earned himself a very sad 0-3 win-loss record for the post season. As for Bagwell, who fans were hoping would be the leader or hero of the series for the Astros, he failed to produce yet again tonight.

The Sox, on the other hand, played as if this was a deciding game seven rather than a chance to sweep. Every play, from Crede’s double to Uribe’s dive into the stands to catch a foul ball exemplified why this team deserved to win. They played tight, they played hard, and they played as if it actually meant something to them. At the end of the night, when the first reporter squirmed his way into the celebrating mass of Sox, Pierzynski was asked what makes this team work together so well. The answer? “We’re just a bunch of guys who like each other”. Cue tears.

Next year: Let’s be crying some tears of happiness for the Yanks.

    Good choice of a picture -- in it, A.J. and Crede provide both terminal points from the spectrum of joy: utter exhiliration and utter peace. Ozzie Guillen was pure class after the win tonight, first signalling appreciation to the Astros' fans and then walking slowly out to meet his mobbing players on the field, not even cracking a triumphant smile. After last night's game, Garner's a genius, and after tonight's, Guillen's a god. Next year's All-Star game should be fun.

    I noticed Ozzie's composure and gratitude as well. This whole series he has been calm and collected, supportive and encouraging of his players, and never taking the wins for granted.

    If there was an doubt before...the American League is definitely the stronger league of the two. six of the last eight WS and if Wells doesn't punk out of Game 5 in 2003 and Mo is able get through the ninth in 2001 it's 8 in a row...
