Barring a Toronto-in-1987 type collapse by the Twins, the White Sox officially choked away their season over the last three games. Yikes.
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
They suckered me in hard this year too the bastards. I truly believed in this team, and then they pull the gag job to end all gag jobs. The hell with 'em. If that's how little they want to win, then I will not be bothered by them anymore. I can surely spend the hundreds I spent at U.S. Cellular Field this year in better places in my life.
It's mildly amazing the Twins pulled this out. Their starting pitching has been beyond horrible for most of the season. Of course, the only reason the Twins are going to win the division is in fact because the Pale Hose and the Royals jumped the shark early in the season.
Nevertheless, sounds like the Twins will be spectators by ALCS time.
Yankee Stadium has a short right field so that can hide his weak arm to some degree. As for the trade, Yanks really don't give up much. Abreu will help, and will definitly be Sheff's replacement next year.
