Just a couple of weeks ago we were talking playoffs. Here it is September 21 and the White Sox, after getting whitewashed last night in Oakland, are in the midst of a seven-game slide and find themselves only three games ahead of the third-place Tigers.
This late season swoon sure puts a damper on what we all thought was going to be a satisfying season after the horrific start. And it makes me ask two questions: how many more games will we win this season and what does it mean for next year?
Like the Sox, I wish I had some answers.
