Congratulations to the White Sox, particularly to Chairman Reinsdorf who had said while the Bulls were winning that he'd be willing to trade some of those basketball rings for a World Series ring. Now he's got one.
Congratulations to Jermaine Dye, World Series MVP. He had the highest World Series batting average at .438 in White Sox history.
Congratulations to Kenny Williams for assembling the team and to Ozzie Guillen for managing it. Wire to wire in first place doesn't happen by accident.
Congratulations to the Astros for making it. Watching them in this series I was reminded of the Sox, the last time they made it to the playoffs against the Mariners: otherwise reliable hitters popped the ball up or grounded out. Something tells me Houston won't have to wait 46 years to go back, especially if they maintain that pitching staff.
Now I need to find a new hat. Maybe a T-shirt. Or two.
