...is that it appears the BoSox are going to win, which means we would have had homefield in ALCS, if I'm not mistaken. Or does it go by record for homefield?

Does this team look like it could contend with Boston right now?

They are the wildcard, so they wouldn't get homefield, if I'm not mistaken.

Nothing has been decided. There is nothing that says the Sox can't win three straight and go to the ALCS and beat either the Angels or red sox.

Exactly...we play great at home and we have to now. Will we win 3 straight vs the Rays? That's tough to fathom the way we are playing, but it is possible. We are not in as bad a spot as the angels/cubs since we are at least going home.

If the Red Sox go on to beat the Angels it means that to win the World Series, the White Sox only need to win ONE more road game: at Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
:bandance:

Of course, that means they have to win every remaining home game. And frankly, I think that's possible.

Wild Card never gets homefield in the divisional or league championship series.

Milwaukee looked bad in Philadelphia and they even had CC pitching one of those game. Now, they are winning in Milwaukee. Home field advantage has been huge in 2008.

What really blows for me is that we had multi-run leads in each of the first 2 games

We are 85-58 on grass fields. That a .594 winning percentage. The National League doesn't have any artificial turf fields. Unfortunately, the AL has three stadiums with artificial turfs. That blows.

****. One area where I have to concede the NL is clearly superior to the AL . . .
