The Boston Red Sox were everyone’s preseason champions, and up until the last few days, one of the hottest teams in major league baseball. It was the 27-31 Chicago White Sox who cooled them off, sweeping the BoSox in Fenway. This makes it seven in a row white over red. Chicago is starting to own Boston in the same manner the Minnesota Twins own them.

Or how the New York Yankees own the Twins in the postseason. The White Sox season has now been upgraded from nightmarish train wreck to mediocre with some rays of hope. They’ve passed up the Kansas City Royals for third place in the AL Central, and are currently within striking distance of reaching .500 and catching the second place Detroit Tigers.

But one number sums up their season more than any other.
