Check out the link, I do not recall being ranked that high anytime last year.

"If he stays healthy, Scott Podsednik could top 70 stolen bases, the amount he snagged last season while with the Brewers." (Last week's ranking: 22)

I'm fairly sure we were Number 1 for a few weeks.

It's fun that the Sox can beat the Indians in 3 of 4 games and be ranked 8 spots lower than them. (I don't think the rankings include last night's game.) I guess that "under the radar" thing is working well.

Yet still ESPN thinks Scott Podsednik was our most important acquisition, so they're basically giving him the credit for the Sox' performance. Uh hello, 7 out of 8 quality starts anyone?

<ESPN> I don't know...quality starts? That's not sexy enough. We'll go with Podshedwhateverhisnameis. <ESPN/>

As much as people are gonna talk about "smallball," "smartball" or "ozzieball," it's the solid 5 man rotation and solid bullpen that'll bring this team to the promised land.

As wildcat said, Sox vs. Indians: 4-1. Sox ranked 17, Indians ranked 9.

Whatever, Dayn.

Wow, I checked out this link and clicked on the White sox, and for its stadium profile for the Cell it has a picture of the stadium from like 1995 probably (with the bullpens in right and left center, etc.) it grosses me out compared to the condition of US cellular right now
