Unless the Twins do something impressive here in the last two, we are now tied for second. Let's go out tonight and take it outright.

I know that its not that exciting, but the less teams in front, the better. I'm still more worried about the Twins than Royals.

How funny is it, that as bad as the Sox have played over the last week, we're still able to pass a team in the standings?

Moral victories are still victories. Kind of.

Yeah, no question - twins are the team to beat. The royals will fizzle. Surprized they haven't yet.

People have been saying that all season long,and the Royals have been at the top of the division the whole time,since the opening series of the season.Last year the same was said of the Twins.

Is there any way the Sox can trade Jerry Manuel for Tony Pena?

We need to catch Minnesota before we can even think of taking on Kansas City and knocking them out.

I'm just glad that our recent losing spell hasn't caused us to fall farther and farther behind the Twins.

Isn't that what they did this afternoon? I mean pending the outcome of the nightcap, the Sox are tied for second. Hence the title of the thread... :D:

Man, I was just thinking that you know it's a pathetic division when a team 5 games under .500 can be in SECOND PLACE.

But it's frustrating that even being in a weak division, we can't seem to use that to our advantage!

The Twins held first from post-game on May 17 until play was completed on June 24. Otherwise you are correct.

Also the Sox are not in second as I write, but then, Sunday is still young.

about MN than KC, frankly I am more concerned about losing 5 of 6 to the league's two worst teams. If we play like that the rest of the way, we have no chance. Any discussion of the playoffs right now should be met with (in my most shrill Jim Mora voice) "Playoffs? PLAYOFFS? We may not win another game all year!!!!!"

The same was said of us in 2000.

I couldn't disagree more.The royals are aggressively seeking to make trades before the deadline where as the twins may or may not make one move,maybe.Right now the royals are playing good ball and having fun while the White Sox and twins keep stumbling over their own feet.I think it will come down to which moves the royals make in the next couple of weeks.

That could be the key, a trade. If the royals pick-up a stud player that could be a killer for the sox and twins.

Agreed. The Sox don't have a prayer if KC is able to add a verteran to their lineup. A part of me is hoping the Sox don't make the playoffs, because that will signal the end of Jerry Manuel's time as manager.

Their bullpen is pretty bad, but the starting pitching has been very good.

If I'm Allard Baird, I'm looking for another pitcher (starter or reliever) and a right fielder (like Gonzalez).
