Good chance Tampa is eliminated before they come to Chicago and the Toons have been dreadful since they fell off after their hot start. Much rather be playing the toons to finish the season than the Royals.

I am not saying its over, but Konerko or Dunn or Rios, one of them has to step up and lead this team to the playoffs. The Sox need a leader, and right now they don't have one.

Honestly, I don't give a crap if the Sox were supposed to be a bad team. Yes they are playing well beyond their talent level, but at this point in the season, missing the playoffs is just a choke job, no matter what team you are on. A lot of teams are playing above their talent level right now, The 2005 Sox played above their level all the way to a title. Missing the playoffs because we couldn't beat the ****ing Royals, that is not acceptable for any ball club who thinks they are a winning franchise.

This.

People forget it's the Tigers. They have finished poorly before and they can again.

I feel like this will come down to a Game 163. Neither team has really taken advantage of the opportunities given to them.

Holy unfavorable schedule, Batman!
If the Royals lay down for the Tigers, it will be that team which leads to the Sox' undoing.
Fair enough. The team has put itself in a tough spot.
If they can't win enough to clinch, they just weren't good enough.

Like 2005, this team will not be able to back in.
Like 2005, this team will have to find a hot hand or two that can not only lead the team to the playoffs, but also through them.

I'd rather see them eliminated ASAP than see that.

On Aug 18 I said that if the Sox could win 7 of the remaining 14 games against the Royals and Tigers they would win the ALC no problem. They went 4-10 in those games. This team has been painfully predictable all year.

Just think about if the Sox had to play at the Royals for the last series...

Starting to feel a little better about things, but far from feeling at ease about the Division title.

Don't think I can relax until the Tiggers are officially eliminated.And like you,I am far from confident the Sox will win the division.A 5 game losing streak will do that to you.

I forgot about that, that just adds to the already junk schedule for 2013.

As soon as I saw the schedule last week, I penciled Opening Day 2013 in as a loss. Bruce Chen vs. whomever for the Sox will result in beginning next season 0-1. Yes, I'm that confident.

"Sox out of 1st place? You're kiddin' me."

Nope, not kidding. At least not kidding as of September 26. The good news is that the Tigers finish their home regular season schedule today with an afternoon game against KC. Hopefully, the Royals can salvage one game in the series and send the Tigers out of town on a losing streak.

As for the Sox, they have to get back to playing good baseball. No time like the present to get things going. Here's hoping for well played series against Tampa Bay and at Cleveland and some much needed wins!
