this is from an espn insider article predicting division champs:


AL Central: White Sox
Why? Because the Twins' luck is finally up. In 2002 the Twins outscored their opponents by 56 runs, the White Sox outscored theirs by 58 runs -- and somehow the Twins finished 13½ games ahead of the White Sox. In 2003 the Twins outscored their opponents by 43 runs, the White Sox outscored theirs by 76 runs -- and the Twins finished four games ahead of the White Sox.

Not this year, though. The White Sox have outscored their opponents by 71 runs, the Twins have been <i>outscored</i> by 18 runs -- and they're tied in the standings. That's two seasons and three months of <i>strange</i>, and what I'm telling you is that it's just not going to persist. The White Sox were significantly better than the Twins <i>before</i> they got Freddy Garcia, and within two months the Sox will have a six-game lead. At least.

just confirming what we know.

But I thought that we were in desperate need for a catcher?

Thanks for putting that article up...Im not an InSider on ESPN, so I didnt have access to it. Its nice to see that. Too bad Gammons and Reynolds who predicted we'd finish 3rd have yet to eat their crow....
The again though, we gotta take this one game at a time. As we all know, 90% of the media had the (s)C(r)ubs in the WS, and we all know that isn't happening...(Unless of course we make it, then they're allowed to make it that far

actually Reynolds predicted us for fourth cuz he knows anything about the game of baseball.

(wait they use a bat? and a ball?)

I thought the same thing last year fellas~With the addition of Alomar, Everitt and Sulivan...I agree, let's take it one game at a time. I've been a Sox fan long enough to know not to count on anything.

Moronic. "because they've made trades that haven't worked out, this one may not". "Sometimes trades work out, sometimes they don't".

I've seen more substance in a Seinfeld episode.

"What's the deal with the Garcia trade? Not that there's anything wrong with that."

Didn't you hear? Today on Sportscenter, Gammons changed his mind and predicted us to win the World Series.

And no, that's not in teal.

When he said, "Sox," are you sure he wasn't talking about his beloved Red variety.

Yeah, we may be getting our asses handed to us by the Yankees, but since when did you have to go through them to win the World Series? Am I right folks?

Actually, he picked the Red Sox to be beaten out by the A's for the Wild Card.

His direct quote was "I actually told someone in the hall that the White Sox were going to win the World Series."

Please change your mind Gammons, we don't need a bandwagon :cool:
