I should never say a positive word about the White Sox. When the Sox swept the Twins in June and found themselves with a 6.5 game lead and what appeared to be a favorable schedule ahead of them, I openly wondered if they might be able to put the division away in June. They lost 5 of their next 6. After Gavin Floyd and the offense made light work of the Orioles last week, I said "They almost look like a playoff team. Almost." They haven't won a game since. And they haven't even been close.
So from now on, I promise to never utter another positive word about the White Sox. It's a sure recipe for AL domination.
- Mark Kotsay has been more of an asset to the Red Sox in the first two games against the White Sox than Ken Griffey Jr has been in a month for the White Sox.
- Dustin Pedroia has reached base in 10 consecutive trips to the plate against the Sox, gaining himself automatic induction into the SSS Douchenozzle Hall of Fame.
Light recaps will continue throughout the holiday weekend
