Default Sox climbing back up to the top, or are they?

The White Sox have been putting on a clinic the last 12 games or so, they have been getting good starts from their pitching , which is always good ( but that ones a given, they've been scoring runs ( is this the Orioles we're talkin' about?), but they should have been doing this in April, I will admit it will be almost imposiible to get past the Indians or Twins but..............do you think they have a chance?

Imagine if you said the TWINS a few years ago, you would have been the laughing stock of the sports world! But now, you're right.

I don't know about the Sox. Ask Nate, he's a big fan. I know they're a young team who started off really good last year, then faded away, so they do have some potential.

Unfortunately, I would have to agree with Nick, no matter how much It saddens me. They have won 15 of their last 18, but they are still 10 games out. If the Tribe and Twinkies keep playing solid baseball, it will be almost impossible to catch them. If only we could have been playing this kind of ball in April and May.

Red face Cleveland Will Eventually Rule

Yes Chicago is playing great ball right now and Cleveland is playing awful, but the Indians have too many weapons to stay quite long. Minnesota will fade by September.

Cleveland is more experienced and has all the right things to win that division. Minnesota does not, and I still think that Chicago is a little too far back to win that division.

I liked the Indians from day one of this season. They're too strong and have too many resources not to win that division. But I do think the Twins will remain very competitive and take the Wild Card.
