It Is What It Is

The day-to-day angst that comes with following a contending team in the heat of a pennant race has diminished a bit for me as the White Sox have dipped below .500 once again and stand 6 1/2 games behind the Tigers. The feeling now is more along the lines of let things play out and hope for the best.

As long as there is hope, mathematical or otherwise, I’ve never given up and won’t this year. As you Sox fans know, we’ve seen much worse. But the big difference in 2011, as opposed to many of the really lean years, has been the high expectations of a team that was favored by a host of experts to win the division. We expected so much more.

The reasons are obvious and there’s plenty of blame to go around, but blame isn’t going to get us to the postseason. It is what it is.

The Sox have had a couple players really struggle all year, the crazy thing is, one great month by these players could put the Sox in the post-season.

It’s high time I start paying attention to what sports prospectus comes out with every year. I think they had us as finishing third or fourth this year… quite an insight after this season…
