How much credence will we give to ourselves as far as What It Actually Took to Win the Division ? Im mostly proud of the Sox because were able to accomplish what we sort of have, with our own CORE of players. Though its been ugly....and not all that much satisfying (though we beat the cubs...that was worth something to me) Have the SOX really earned this division? Or are we just stumbling along to the finish line? As far as that flub team is concerned, Im watching their game alongside the SOX on a bigscreen last nite, and I heard a cub fan cheering a hit by a player, and he said "who just scored just now", and it made me think....MY GOD, this team is once again.....ENTIRELY NEW as compared to Opening Day. The cubs are entirely a brand new team (thanks to the genorosity of the Pirates, Rockies and Bud Selig) Have they really earned their division? or was it handed to them by others?
