I could never root for any team from Texas, and I couldn't root for Alex Rios playing for a team other than the White Sox when he seemed to care so little about playing for the White Sox.
Of course, what makes the wild card so wild anymore is that you don't so much make the postseason, but you earn an opportunity to make the postseason in a play-in game. It's really no different from the White Sox having to beat the Twins in a one-game playoff to make the postseason.
But if you're looking for former White Sox World Series stars this postseason, consider that Juan Uribe could win his third ring this year with his third team.
