Just read this on ESPN, so its probably inaccurate:

"Chicago's 12-4 record matches the 1935 team White Sox for the franchise best after 16 games. The White Sox have won the first two games of all six series this season."

So basically my Grandma's entire life to this point since we had a hot start like this. We must've had a pretty rough go the last 7 decades. :cool:

I don't think many seasons are decided in the first 16 games... unless you're the Devil Rays.

Really? They had interleague games in 1935? Damn those baseball execs in 1997, making me think I was seeing something new.

According to baseball-reference.com, the Sox had a start of 13-4 in 1935 with Luke Appling as their best hitter and Ted Lyons as their best pitcher. They also went 13-4 back in 1919. :(:

Sorry for the useless statistic. We'll see where we are come October.

I don't think it's useless, to me it's further evidence that this is a special year in the making.

Interleague baseball did not start until 1997. Here is the White Sox results from their first 16 games of 1935.

And this year there'll be no Sport Sullivan and Arnold Rothstein to help screw it up for us.
