Hi Folks This is my first post to this board so I'll try to keep it simple. I have been living here in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 3 years and trying to spread the White Sox Fanatisism everywhere I go. I have been following all your post on this board for the past 2 months and I thought it's about time to join the fun. I look forward to sharing the many ups and downs with my fellow Sox fans and I know my girlfriend will appreciate that I have another outlet for my beloved Sox! Well just to get you on another mindset for the upcomming A's series, I can tell you that the local media here is referring to this as a "very tough series agaist the surging White Sox!" Wins and the recent offensive surge is starting to garner some much due respect throughout the AL! Prediction...Sox take two out of three!
