DIFFICULTY TO SCORE
A Very Tough Series. All of winnig starters completed each game to give Chicago White Sox a ticket to World Series first since a 1959 team. The starters, Mark Buehrle, Jon Garland, Freddy Garcia and Jose Contreras overcame battles with Angels starters limiting less than 3 runs in the American League Championship Series. Considering Anaheim's bullpen works, I felt that only little things might have turned each victory to Halos.
There were controversial judges through the series but that's a baseball. South Siders showed best pitching performance to bring a game to a scramble for one-run. That's how Chicago had won this season, Small Baseball.
ALDS hero Tadahito Iguchi became silent to make 3 hits of 17 at-bats with 6 strikeouts and a walk. I wish Sox battings take the team to World Champion.
