Considering I have tickets to the 7th game of the World Series in Boston, I would have to go with Boston Red Sox vs. Chicago Cubs in 7!

Then how come he isn't even going to start game 2 for the sox.

And his era and whip is higher than 4 yankee starters.

He won 17 games because of run support.

There are a couple reasons for this:

1) Derek Lowe does much better at home (you would know this if you were in Boston) which is a severe disadvantage for Boston in which the pitching matchups could be a bit screwy

2) Tim Wakefield is going in Game 2, and he has done quite good this year, to put him as the #2 starter would not be a mistake

Rats...Cubs lose game 2. Ah well, it was a good one. I've been a huge Cubs fan for 20 years. I think I deserve something big this year! If Prior does what he does best, Cubs should be up 2-1. I wouldn't be suprised to see Wood pitch in game 4 either. Clement has been pretty up and down all year. One game he'll strike out 9 and allow a couple hits. Next game he'll get rocked. The bottom of the Cubs batting order killed them last night....aside from Wood. I think they can take the Braves in 4. It's San Fran's pitching that worries me. Course one can dream that Florida will beat them

For the AL....I would like to see Oakland in the series. I can't stand the Twins or Yankees, but have to cheer for the Yanks in this series. Down with the Twins!!!

Why would you not like the Twins?? They win by old fashioned hard work and dedication. We dont have to go buy a winning team like the Yankees. You have seen what they can do under pressure last year and hopefully what they will do this year. Go Twins!

friday night should bring a good game.. maddox vs. prior, and i agree with you illinipi, its going to 1-0 one way or the other.. both pitchers are having great years, but it seems as if maddox is declining.... hopefully the braves hitting will pull through :)

I can remember many a posts ago when i tried to explain to many neowinians that derek lowe was overrated. Nobody seemed to listen to me. Derek Lowe walked a couple of people and got the L in game 1.

Oaktown baby.

well with the marlins killing the giants 9-5, braves edging by the cubs late 5-3 with mike derosa's game winning double, and the athletics rallying in the bottom of the 12th with a bases loaded squeeze bunt to top the red sox 5-4, the standings are looking like this:

giants knotted up with the marlins: 1 game to 1

cubs knotted up with the braves: 1 game to 1

twins lead over the yankees: 1 game to 0

athletics lead the red sox: 1 game to 0

here are today games:

thursday october 2, 2003 *all times eastern*

3:06 pm boston vs. oakland (wakefield vs. zito)

7:18 pm minnesota vs. n.y. yankees (radke vs. pettitte)

It's a long standed hatred of them, going back to my early years. If you liked the Cubs, you couldn't like the Twins, and vice versa. Yeah, hard work, dedication, and being in the worst division in baseball. :rolleyes:

All you've proven is that you know very little about baseball. You've done that quite well. So Lowe got a loss. Who cares! Now show me a pitcher who has NEVER lost a game in his life. By your own standards, you can't be a good pitcher if you lose a game. I guess every pitcher in MLB history sucks then, huh.

damn braves. i've been a cubs fan for about 15 years, so yeah, we do deserve something! i was so ****ed, cuz i was watching the game at a bar in los angeles, and there were some people cheering for the cubs, but then some dude started cheering "bandwagon!" when the cub fans cheered. ****ed the **** outta me, just cuz those spoiled braves fans (no offense Capt. ;)) get the playofffs for 11 years in a row or whatever...they don't understand what it is to be a fan. it takes dedication being a cubs fan, and it is really hard at times, but we stick through it.

yeah i see how its hard to be a cubs fan.. but its not exactly easy to be a braves fan either... the cubs are expected to lose and anything more is great.. the braves are expected to win the world series.. so every year we all get fired up only to be disappointed in october.. sure its nice to be in october, but the heartbreak every year really sucks.. im not gonna say i would rather have a losing team, but it takes some dedication to keep confidence in this team every year. the braves havent always been good either, in fact they used to be horrible.. im young and dont remember much of that, but i know what its like.(I'm an Atlanta Falcons fan too :( )but if the braves should lose to the cubs, ill be pulling for the cubbies to the end. :)

He's a great starter, but only a decent closer. That's the main problem. He's far from overrated.
