Shea was right

A ship is sinking, but it is not Toronto, it is the White Sox.

And while this could be a fun development as it relates to watching Ozzie go down in flames, it has the potential to be a not fun development for the Sox if MN takes the WC and the Sox the AL East. Imagine having to face Santana and Liriano in at least 3 if not 4 games in a 5 game set. Yikes.

Also, look for the Sox to take a run at Odalis Perez - Theo has always liked him. And now that he is in KC, I don't see them holding onto him. Could be a very nice pick up and would reunite him with Dave Wallace. Stay tuned.


  1. In the AL central, if the White Sox fold, and Minn. remains white hot, may the better team win. We will have to beat everyone to get where we want to go.

  2. Yeah, I thought the same thing about Perez when I first heard about the trade - which was in Dodger Stadium as Elmer Dessens came into the game.

    As for the AL Central, I would love it the favorite mantra of the media this season - "the Wild Card isn't coming out of the East this year" - turned out to be wrong. (Of course, same goes with the other one: "Toronto will finish ahead of the Red Sox.")
