    I am a White Sox fan and have to say, Your ------- NUTS!

    The Big Red Machine was.

    Edit- The White Sox were the BEST TEAM in 05 and did something only the Yankees did once. Have one loss in the playoffs in the current format.

    Also the White Sox had back, to back, to back, to back complete games pitched by the Starting Staff. The White Sox won because they had the BEST pitching and D in the league.

    And also because AJ is the best Catcher since Johnny Bench. Sorry you steal first base and you become legendary to me.

    I think the 1998 Yankees are a better team than the 2005 White Sox. The best team in baseball is either the 1927 Yankees, 1961 Yankees, or the 1998 Yankees. Either of those teams can handle the 2005 White Sox. Don't get me wrong, I give credit to the White Sox for winning in 2005. I like the White Sox team as well. Harold Baines, Nellie, Fox, Paul Konerko, Jim Thome, and Frank Thomas are my favorite White Sox players. Their 2006 Intro was very good to watch as well. However, I don't think the 2005 White Sox are the greatest team of all time.

    I don't agree with you. For one thing, the Oakland A's won 3 titles in the early 70s, and were a complete team, from Vida Blue to Bert Campaneris to Reggie Jackson to Rollie Fingers. Then, you have the Big Red Machine who beat the very talented Pittsburgh Pirates to get to the 75 World Series, and then beat the very good Red Sox in the clincher at Fenway. The next year they swept the NY Yankees, a team that won the next 2 World Series. Another Yankees team, in the 1990s, won 4 times in 5 years. Consider that the White Sox struggled down the stretch in September, and barely held off Cleveland in 2005. They beat 2 good teams in Boston and Anaheim, but played a so-so opponent in Houston in the World Series, so i don't think they are the Best team ever. They might not be the best team in this decade.

    Not even close. 1998 Yankees, 1984 Tigers, 1967 Cardinals, 1963 Dodgers, 1955 Dodgers, 1931 Athletics, 1927 Yankees, 1919 White Sox (Black Sox) 1906 Cubs. The 05 Sox don't even make the list. And Mauer is a much better catcher in every respect than Pierzynski.

    The 1927 New York Yankees.

    110 wins and 44 losses.

    Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Leo Durocher and the rest of "Murderers Row". By far the best team EVER in Professional baseball and I'm a Dodgers fan!

    They won the series 3 years in a row in 1926, 1927 and 1928. No team EVER had that high of a winning percentage for an entire Season.

    No the 2005 white sox were the luckest team in baseball. Even though I hate to say it the Yankees must have had the best time in baseball history.

    Of course I dont argee with you. I seriously doubt anyone in their right mind would. As much as I hate the yankees, any number of their 26 rings would certainly top your fluke year of 2005.

    So, go ahead keep living in the past. I guess that is how you whinesy sux can maintain any sanity.

    You should wake up though. Kc beat you today and now you are in DEAD LAST PLACE WHERE YOU WILL REMAIN FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS.

    Had better get used to the whiney sux being the new bottom feeders of the American League.

    No, not in history. Their post season certainly was one of the best, perhaps the best. 11-1 and AJ Peirzinski's steal of 1st base. But best team ever? Nah.

    i don't really agree with you because better teams have play baseball, many many much better teams. just because they broke a world series difference in years of that many and they are a good team and won the whole thing doesn't mean they are the best EVER. it means they were a good, strong team for that year.

    they never should have gotten past the Angels in the 2005 ALCS. The Angels were robbed in Game 2. That was a strike out, and you know it!
