It's hard to get excited about being in the race, even though we're only 5 1/2 back. If and when we reach the coveted .500 level, things should get interesting.

Right now the Sox are 33-38, 5 under. Do you think we'll reach .500 this summer? And if so, when?

I thought we would reach it on the next homestand, that was before we started this road trip with 3 straight lifeless losses. Now I don't know, maybe by the all-star break if at all.

We're not in the race- over a full season we'll be 11 out and 10 games below .500.

When they were 11-22, I said be .500 at the end of interleague on July 3. That's means 43-42 now that they had the rainout in Minnesota.

They have to go 10-4 the next 14, or it's not a good situation.

If they don't get to .500 by the break, I don't think they ever will.

After we've fallen back 10-12 games and all the pressure is off, we'll reel off a streak, get over .500 and get within 4-5 back. This will of course be a tease and show us all what this team could have been. We'll go back in the tank then, fall out of the race, only to have a meaningless hot streak the last two weeks of the season to finish 83-79, six games back and in 3rd place.

It'll be tough, but it could happen. If it does, it'll be during interleague play, then we'll fall back below .500 shortly after we go back to playing the AL, and likely won't see it again.

Next year's draft is based on this year's record. So we might have a high pick to ruin a highly touted player. Pretty exciting.

Everything the Sox touch turns to **** right? Even if they dump the GM and the whole coaching staff, it won't matter, because the Sox uniform is what brings the player down.
