That hot streak in 2010 was something else. I've never seen a Sox team get so scorching hot and we may never see anything like that again. In true White Sox fashion though, it wasn't quite enough to seize the division title. This year's Sox team has too many self inflicted gunshot wounds and a far weaker offense than the 2010 squad to go on any kind of run close to that. However, it is baseball and crazy stuff happens from time to time. I'm sure fans of the 2005 Astros weren't thinking NL Pennant when they were 15 games under .500.
