How Does It End? You write the ending . . .

In a fitting tribute to 2022, and this division, on October 4th the Guardians lose to KC while the Sox lose to the Twins thus cinching the division for Cleveland who substantially is swept in the playoffs. 

And that's the most optimistic ending I could think of.

Global Thermo-Nuclear War

Shall we play a game?

In the scene where the Black Widow boots up SHIELD’s supercomputer from a bygone era, she asks Captain America, “Shall we play a game?”, with Captain America replying, “Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War?” This is a reference to a line from WarGames, a 1983 Cold War sci-fi film.

Not sure what the GB situation  will look like but that should do it for the season.

This sounds pretty realistic. But what the hell, meaningful September baseball is want it’s all about. I’ll be pulling for them and on the edge of my seat until that elimination number hits 0. 

Sox would be 4 GB with 12 to play in that scenario.

Whoever wins the central will do so with a whimper, falling assbackwards into a division title by sucking slightly less than the competition. 

Your 2022 AL Central champion White Sox slogan - winning by default.

 

I actually feel like - If the Sox can pull this out - they’ll win the first series against the Rays/Mariners. Big if tho.

Two days later there is a deep, ominous rumble followed by the crackling sound of a major earthquake. Buildings waver, quiver, and tumble in upon themselves, as the Earth's crust heaves in a gigantic convulsion. The disappearing oil was only the smallest symptom of the world's fatal illness. A cloud of poisonous air belches into the sky, eventually enveloping the earth in a mist of death.

Many teams went on a run in the playoffs with less than 90 wins

Luis Robert hits a long deep way out of here ball with one arm in the 9th inning to give the Sox a come from behind victory which pushes them into first place… but the ball hooks foul.

He strikes out on the last pitch. Sox lose and end up in second place.

Banners fly forever.  There would be no better middle finger to Tony than to win it  all without him.

So I booked a vacation in early October last year and the Sox got eliminated the day I went on vacation. 

I also booked a vacation this year on October 23rd. By the looks of the playoff schedule, that's the day of game 4 of the ALCS. 

So I guess this means the Sox are getting swept in the ALCS.

Sox, Guardians, Twins head into the final day of the season in a 3 way tie. Guardians hold the tiebreaker, so the winner of the Sox-Twins game needs Cleveland to lose to clinch the division.

Sox win 6-1 and watch the end of the Guardians-Royals game in the clubhouse with Tony, who has still not returned to manage yet. In the 11th inning, Sal Perez hits a 2 run HR and the Guardians can only score 1 in the bottom half, thus falling 1 game short of the division title.

The Sox clubhouse breaks out in celebration. Southpaw breaks open the bubbly and the boys get good and drunk. Tony announces, via post-game show interview, that he'll return to manage for the playoffs. However, the party gets the best of him and he receives his 3rd DUI while drunkenly driving the team bus to Admiral Theatre later that night. He is fired the next morning.

Sox host the Rays in a 3 game playoff at the G Spot and win it in 2 games, with game 2 being a walkoff basehit from Romy Gonzalez scoring pinch runner Adam Engel. Tony tries joining the clubhouse celebration but is met by G Spot security at the back entrance and not allowed to enter. That night, Leury gets his wife pregnant with Leury Jr. Who will eventually be drafted 3rd overall by the Tigers and win 4 MVPs while destroying the sox throughout the 2040's and early 2050's.

In the ALDS, the Sox overmatch the Yankees with superior pitching and win the series in 4 games, again clinching on their home field.

Meanwhile, the Mariners making their first playoff appearance in 21 years, shock the Astros to advance to the ALCS to meet the Sox. A local Seattle radio station somehow manages to arrange a Lou Piniella vs Tony La Russa wrestling match with each former skipper wearing a singlet donning their former team's logo. Tony wins the match via TKO after knocking out Sweet Lou with a folding chair. In his post-fight interview Tony says he is still with the team in spirit and will be drinking more spirits later that night. This wrestling match victory gives the Sox all the momentum they need. They sweep the Mariners and head back to the World Series for the first time in 17 years. ALCS MVP Eloy Jimenez credits Tony's inspirational victory as the motivation the team needed to advance and dedicates his MVP to Tony.

The Sox meet the Dodgers in the World Series and shockingly, the day before the series starts Dave Roberts is suspended by the MLB for cocaine use. He reports that the MLB must have mistakenly tested Ron Washington's urine when the Dodgers beat the Braves in the NLCS but he can not prove it. With Roberts gone, the Dodgers hire Tommy Lasorda's corpse to manage the World Series. Tony is upset as he was hoping to be the first corpse to manage in a World Series. The underdog Sox take advantage of the demoralized Dodgers clubhouse and win the World Series in 7 games, after AJ Pollock hits a Grand Slam in the top of the 9th inning off Craig Kimbrel to erase a 5-2 Dodgers lead. Nick Madrigal, who is in the outfield bleachers as a fan, catches the game winning home run with his Toys R Us glove he brought to the game like all the other 12 year olds.

The day after the parade, Reinsdorf sells the Sox to Jeff Bezos. The White Sox dominate the rest of the 2020's and 2030's winning 6 World Series. However, they never win another after that as the curse of Leury Jr. casts a dark shadow over the franchise for the rest of eternity.

Oh my Gawd I can't wait for the sequel.

Exciting and meaningful games, everyday until the trip to San Diego . the Sox beat the Padres, in dramatic fashion, to win the central, and have the next 5 games to set up their rotation for the post season . what happens next, is entirely up to the baseball gods, with some solid pitching, great defense, and barreled up long balls thrown in . also, on a personal note, since we are day dreaming, I'm healthy again, win the lottery and my daughter moves back home from Boston .

For all intents and purposes,  the season will be over by Thursday. 

Besides sending Tony home, fixing up the defense a bit, and doing something about the injuries,  I hope the team looks at the obvious.  When they hit home runs, they usually win. When they hit a bunch of singles, they usually lose, no matter the opponent.  Let's get back to hitting them all season long.
