You Can Put it on the Board: The Twins Own the White Sox

Minnesota Twins Designated Hitter Jim Thome

Only 32 days ago, the White Sox boasted a 4.5 game lead over the Minnesota Twins, the Chicago sports talk radio hosts were ready to hand the Commissioner’s trophy to the Sox and I was guaranteeing that Ozzie Guillen’s team would miss the play-offs.

Since July 15th the Twins have been 8.5 games better than the White Sox and have taken a firm hold on first place in the AL Central Division. I don’t mean to get all self-righteous or anything, but come on, I deserve an “I told you so,” right?

Will the White Sox cool off in the 2nd half?

I got a call from my cousin today who was in Chicago on a business trip. He called to let me know that, in what must be an unprecedented event, the World Series had already been decided in early July. I, baffled as to what he was talking about, let him continue.

He said that as he entered into the range of the Chicago radio stations he tuned his dial to a sports talk station and he was shocked to hear the host (he could not recall the host’s name) give praise up and down to the Chicago White Sox and ramble on about how great of a team they were, they were going to make some noise in the American League and were a team to be reckoned with. Typically, I would have laughed off the story, as my cousin is a die hard Minnesota sports fan and loves the Twins unconditionally (like me, but with less objectivity), but when coupled with the boasting of our own Mr. Banks about the said White Sox, I figured it was time someone brought them down to earth before the White Sox do it themselves. Enter me stage left.

THE WHITE SOX WILL MISS THE PLAYOFFS. GUARANTEED!
