I really thought with Prior on the mound that the Cubs were gonna clinch tonight.  I'm cutting some of the highlights at work right now, and it's almost surreal how they blew game 6.

I never said one person in the crowd blew it for the Cubs, but that sure was the starting point for their dismay.  Who knows how the game would have finished if that person didn't interfere like that?   :-\

I'm not giving up hope yet , but the boat is starting to take on water.  As much as I hate to admit it, the Yanks are the Yanks for a reason and they showed why yesterday.  I really can't complain about our starting pitching, they gave us five solid performances so far.  Its our offense.  The offense that set record after record in the regular season, scored ten runs before making an out in the first inning, took the Yanks deep 7 times in the Stadium, etc. has just not gotten it done.    Nomar, Ortiz, Mueller and Millar (the heart of the order) are having a terrible post season.  The pitching is the only thing keeping them in the games.  Well its now time to put up or shut up.

Go Red Sox!!

Well Boston fans, it looks like this is it :'(  We might as well pack it up with Burkett starting today.  I had such high hopes like every other fan but the bats are too cold for us to go anywhere.  Nomar, Manny, Mueller, Ortiz and Millar picked the wrong time to go on such a slump.  The worst part is that half of this team will probably be disbanded on the off season.  I said from the beginning that the first game of the series was going to cost the Sox.  Two in NY will be tough but not impossible, but the fans will definitely be very vocal today.  Like I have said for the last 25 years, there is always next year.

Oh man that was a bitter loss for us Cub fans.  I can't believe it went down that way.  I thought for sure they would clinch ahead 3-0 with 5 outs to go.  Good Lord.  I know the fan was a big play but Gonzalez followed it up with a HUGE error.  I think that was THE play that reallly sealed the fate for the Cubs.  

That and Baker left Prior in a bit to long.

Yah, I agree on that one.  I just couldn't believe how awful the 8th inning turned out to be.  

LET"S GO CUBS!!!!!

Kick
A**
SOX came through for us MA guys   :-*

Sorry Nick  ;)

Tomorrow should be an incredible game of baseball.
I usually never watch bb on TV just because... honestly it bores me. I can't watch a regular season game... I'm a much more in the park kinda guy.

Though these play offs have me glued. Tomorrow will be the one to watch!
Gotta love me or leave me alone....

...but a Game 7 matchup between Clemens and Martinez would be one for the ages, that's for sure!  And if it comes to that, I'll be pulling for the Rocket, since I've always been a huge fan of his...   8)

Well, looks like that's what we'll be getting!  Nice comeback by the Sox!  Game 7...  Two future Hall of Famers on the mound...  One of the greatest rivalries in all of sports...  A trip to the World Series on the line...

AWESOME!   8)  But it looks like I'll be pullin' for the Yanks now...

Hopefully the Cubbies step up now, and get it done!   :-\

Dammit!  Please don't tell me Kerry Wood is going to freaking choke under pressure...   >:(

Just gave up 3 earned runs in the top of the first!  Cubs bats have their work cut out for them now...

Get the f*** outta here!  Kerry Wood just hit a 2-run homer to tie the score up in the second, after giving up a 3-run blast in the first!  Incredible!  Right back in this...   8)

Someone explain to me why that "idiot" cost the Cubs the game last night

It was a foul ball, Prior still had every chnace to get him out, not to mention the cavalcade of errors that  followed.

Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Choke...

Great Games today so far...I Love This Game
