I can't recall the last time the Sox regained first place after relinguishing it. In 2005 it was wire to wire. Other years, it seemed that once they got into first, they never gave it up. My memory is probably faulty, but I just don't recall the Sox regaining first place.

They were in 1st place at the All-Star Break in 2004 and also from late August 2003 to mid-September, too.

I still can't figure out how that 2003 team (http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/CHW/2003.shtml) didn't make the play-offs. :scratch:

I've been asking myself the same question. In fact, it comes up every time I interview for a managerial opening.....

My boyhood heroes of 1959 were in and out of 1st 3 or 4 times, actually falling to 4th place in June with a record of 33-30 but only 1.5 games out. We finished 94-60 going 61-30 the last 91 games.

I thought this was going to be a thread about where Sox fans are going to meet during the Angel series. :)

Geez, I had so much faith in that '03 team. Sometimes I still can't help but think "What if?"
