Back in 1983 Sports Illustrated was suppose to run a three part article about the White Sox pitching staff. Frank DeFord was the writer. The first article was in the April 18, 1983 issue. The second article was in the August 22, 1983 issue. But there wasn't a third and final article. Not sure why but the Sox won for the first time in forever and Hoyt won the Cy Young. Why wouldn't they finish the series?

I have those two parts. Every so often I go back and read what it was like to have a very good club.

But to answer your question SI considered the 'third part' to be their coverage of the 1983 A.L.C.S. and the resulting end of the season for the club.

That's what they told me in reply to a complimentary 'letter to the editor' that I sent them. I still have it and it was dated before the ALCS.
