    Magic Number: Playoffs - 0; Division - 4

    Insane that we could play any team in the playoffs besides Tampa.

    9/26 GT: Cubs @ Sox (6:10pm)

    Sox battled back a lot this week. There’s really no doubt they still have fight.
  3. Yes, from Chapman to Russell to their racist patriarch, nothing screams “class” like the Chicago Cubs organization. What a joke of a comment.

    9/26 GT: Cubs @ Sox (6:10pm)

    Let’s build some momentum going into the playoffs and erase last night from our memories.
  5. Tomorrow is a big game. Sox didn’t look lifeless in Cleveland—their manager took games away from them. They looked lifeless tonight. I hope Ricky didn’t succeed in sucking all the life essence from this team in Cleveland. They need to come out strong tomorrow—they can do it (Cubs lost 7-0 to Pittsburgh 24 hours ago), but they need to flush this away. This one worried me.

    Marshall returns, Ruiz banished to Schaumburg

    Yes - bullpen now 30% more unfuckupable

    Fire Ricky

    The Sox could still easily play Cleveland. And win the division. If Sox win and Twins lose, we could be controlling our destiny in the division as soon as tonight. If getting swept decreased the chances of playing Cleveland in the playoffs, it did so only marginally.
  8. For as gut-wrenching as this week's multiple manager-assisted game-forfeits have been, this team has battled and been in position to win every night on the road against the league's best pitching. I'll say it again, they have flaws but they do not look like a "dead team" to me by any stretch. If we were coming off, say, a 7-0 loss to cap off getting swept by the worst team in baseball I'd feel worse. I think the guys come in fired up to beat the tiny baby animals. This series usually serves as a springboard for one of the teams - let's make that team the Chicago White Sox.
  9. I’m just going to tell myself he truly doesn’t care about the division and is “experimenting.” That it will all be fine when we play “for real.” Yes, I must believe that.
  10. Remember that the "shit" here is a #3 overall pick who has had multiple stretches of dominance as a big league starter. I'm as skeptical about Rodon's long term prospects as anybody, but there's ample reason to think he has the tools to be a valuable piece in the playoffs--certainly more reason than the likely roster alternatives.
  11. Yeah I had really high hopes for him based on last year. Maybe his arm just couldn't take the abuse.
  12. Me too. Detwiler has real value on this roster.
  13. Happy to have them, but why Detwiler?
  14. This picture reminds me: I'm really worried about going into the 2005 playoffs with our best player out for the season, Carl freaking Everett as our DH, and having almost blown a 15-game lead. You can all bury your heads in the sand if you want to, but that's just not a professional lineup, certainly not one that stacks up against the defending champs we'll have to play in the FIRST ROUND.
