I don't either. Think back to the glory days of 2005. The same cherry-picking was done with the White Sox who, we were reminded, had a losing record against potential playoff teams. And indeed, they did have losing regular season records against the Red Sox and Angels. And we know how that one turned out, of course-they blew first place and choked away the biggest lead in baseball history, just as the Chicago media predicted.
