Tonight They're Gonna Party Like It's 1959
After 46 Years, The White Sox are Back in the World Series


The Sox They Are A-Changin'

"No one knows if Theo Epstein will be the Red Sox general manager on Nov. 1 and, if he is not re-signed, whether the reconstruction of the talent line and the organizational mission statement will be diverted onto the Lowell Connector.

"OK, there almost certainly will be a Jose Contreras bidding war between these two teams (Yankees and Red Sox) for reliever B.J. Ryan. The Yankees will offer more cash; the Red Sox plan to offer him the opportunity to close, which for the second time in three years might give Boston the advantage of having Keith Foulke instead of Mariano Rivera.

"Boston will have Dustin Pedroia in the second base mix with Alex Cora; Jonathan Papelbon in the rotation or bullpen; Kevin Youkilis at third; and, by the end of the season, Craig Hansen, Manny Delcarmen, Jon Lester and perhaps Edgar Martinez pitching. But will they trade Manny Ramirez to the Mets -- for Carlos Beltran or a package involving Lastings Milledge, Mike Cameron and pitching -- and try to get a Troy Glaus or Paul Konerko for first base? Will they remake some form of the the trade deadline deal ownership killed that involved Kelly Shoppach, Abe Alvarez and Adam Stern to Colorado for Ryan Shealy and Larry Bigbie, as the Rockies have suggested?" -- 10.15, Peter Gammons, ESPN.com Insider (subscription only)
