Default Why are people not treating this sweep for what it is?

All this sweep did was TIE the Twins in the loss column with us. They're NOT a full game up going into the last series.

If the two series mirror each other, which I think will happen, that game Monday is a pushover. The Tigers won't even want to be there, and I think it will show in their play.

Then, winning that coin flip really comes into play.

If you watched the game you'd understand why no one is treating it like just another statistic.
This team looks, and plays like they're mentally drained... How can we be motivated by a team who isn't motivated?

I disagree, they beat the Rays to delay their celebration today, and the Indians and Tigers will want nothing more then to end our season

Especially with Freddy Garcia on the mound.

I'd bet good money we don't need Monday's game.

So are we losing 2 out of 3 to the Indians, or are the Twins sweeping the Royals?

Both...unless we get swept by the Indians.

Tonight loss is a blessing. Now the Sox can go and trade the slow garbage
on this team. This team has enough young players to be great.

I hope the OP is right and the dark clouds are wrong. If there is anything I would wish for the regular posters on this board, it's to attend a play-in game, cheer your team along and hopefully see them win.

The play-in game last year was the single best sporting event I've ever been to. I'd love for you all to the feel the way I did that night.

Here's to the Sox!

Not a big game for him = me not worried. We have to take care of business this weekend, though. I don't have high hopes, but I do still have some hope.

OEO:

It could be a big game for him personally. I don't know what his attitude was when he got traded, perhaps he didn't like leaving the Sox.

He didn't, in fact I think there were reports that he cried when he was told of his trade. He's a Sox fan at heart, so maybe he feels bad feels sorry for us...

Like I said, if it comes to it, then I'll worry about Freddy. We've got some games to win first.

Other than the Detroit doublehdeader, I can't remember the last time the Sox won more than one in a row. So they're going to sweep the Indians? White Sox fans should face up to this. This team is not very good, and without major moves done in the off season, won't be any good for a long time.
