Looking at the remaining schedule we could make a run real soon, but we still have to get it done vs Cleveland and Minnesota in the end.

White Sox schedule (http://baseball.espn.go.com/mlb/schedule?team=chw)

After tomorrow we have 3 vs KC. An easy 2 or 3 wins. Then 4 vs TB. We should be able to take 3 of 4 from them. After those 7 games and tomorrow we could be 7 over(best case scenario) or only 500(worst case scenario). So its obvious that no matter how bad the opponent is we have to play well.

Then we play 3 vs every AL West team. 8 out of 12 would be good there. That's followed by 4 @KC, 3 @TB and Detroit. 3 easy series.

In September the Sox play a lot of the teams they need to beat. To start 4 vs Cleveland followed by 4 vs Detroit and 4 @Cleveland. 8 big games vs Cleveland are split by a should be easy 4 game series vs Detroit. We need to take at least 7 or 8 there. Next in September is a tough 9 game stretch with 6 vs NYY and 3 vs Minnesota. Just stay a float there, 4 or 5. We finish the season with 6 vs KC and 3 more vs Minnesota. Wow, a very tough September, but that's the way we are going to get in.

no better time for the boys to get hot. Finally we have Maggs and Howry locked down, which should ease everone's nerves so baseball can be the focus instead of contracts.

I think they need to sweep or only lose 1 in the next two series to be considered "in the race"
