Seriously. . . I just can't deal with the Chisox when they're in contention. 3 years ago they almost blow a massive lead and now they have the division in their grasp and they lose the first two games. What gives?
I think the Gardy coaching is a bit overrated, but they are obviously doing something better than the White Sox. They've got a couple studs, but position by position, the Sox look better on paper. I will say that I HATE how lifeless the Sox look. I mean, seriously, this is a playoff game. . . act like it. You can tell the Twins want it more, especially last night. That goofy bastage Gomez was definitely amped with that catch that essentially sealed the game. That means it's time to light a fire under this team. Which means it will be interesting to see what Ozzie does before this game. I think he was saving it for when it was truely necessary hoping the team would pull it out on their own. Now he's got to do something, and he really only does that is a big way, so this should be interesting.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for today. If they pull this off, they'll be up 1.5, and I think that should give them the comfort they need. They should be able to take 2 of 3 vs the Indians and it will force the Twins to sweep the Royals on the last series. We all know them to be pretty bad, but the reality is they always love to be the spoilers and have put the beatdown on a couple contenders down the stretch in the past.
Time to go to the store to get my brew. .. . if they lose tonight, I'm thinking it's call in sick tomorrow.
