That sounds like fun but I'd bet that in actuality NONE of these events will occur. I'd say 2 at the most, but most likely zero will come true.

Here are the headlines most likey to be written:

1. White Sox Sweep Twins!
2. Sox Smash Cubs for Sixth Straight.
3. Borchard Hits Concourse With Blast
4. Sox First to Ninety Wins.

The others are possible, but perhaps a bit far-fetched. I'm going to wait and see how things develop before I give anymore thought to the Sox chances in the postseason. After all, they have to get there first.

Wow, I like those.

FIRED DUSTY BAKER JOINS SOX AS USHER
:) Nice work.

Unfortunately, if you expect the Chicago media to come anywhere near those types of praise statements if those do indeed happen, I recommend a drug test.

I expect more along the lines of:

'Twins division hopes still alive despite sweep'
'Sosa's rehab in AAA continues by going 0-4 with 4K'sFrank hits 50'
'Player of the month award rigged as Sosa again is snubbed'
'Back in the day - Kerry Wood's 20K game'
'Cubs chose not to perform at USC field - "We don't sell out"'
'Hee Sop Choi finally hits warning track - Wind assists Borchard's ball'
'Weak division helps Sox, equivilant in NL Central would be 40 wins'
'Ex-Cleveland pitcher remembers good old days'
'Twins tired, decide to save energy and begin rebuilding for next year'
'Q & A with Cubs Andy Macphail'
'Editorial: Sosa should have come late to camp to preserve his homers'
'Cubs mourn death of Sis Daley, dedicate future wins to her memory'
'Macphail: "We always knew he wasn't the right choice for us"'

I would be extremely happy with 30hrs and .315BA. Not that i would be upset with 50.

"Sosa traded to Expos for Cash"
"Gordon out for the season--Again"
"Koch, Ordonez both get number 50"
"White Sox Clinch!"(9-14-03)
"Thomas hits 40, third sox player to do so this year"
"Sox win number 108!"
"Steinbrenner to Matsui: Go to Chicago, and bring your press corps with you"
(follow up)"Matsui hits 5 HR in first game with Chicago"
"Bartolo wins Cy Young"
"Ordonez gets the triple crown"
"Wright pitches no-hitter"
"Sox sweep Phillies in World Series!"

I hope that all but the second one happens, but unfortunately that one is the most likely. But I'd rather see number one than the second to last one.

I was thinking along these lines

Day one
CUBS LOSE HEARTBREAKER, 13-2
rumors of other chicago team winning unconfirmed

Day two
LOSING WAYS CONTINUE FOR CUBS, 5-1
Kansas City Royals look good in loss

Into eternity...but I'm really not bitter or anything.

I think the one about Colon joining Buehrle in the 20 win club has a chance to come to fruition.
