The last baseball post I care to post for a while

The White Sox are struggling to get to 80 wins after commanding the best MLB record through earlier in August. The same East Coast sports media that ignored the White Sox earlier in the season are now saying "We told you so, largely by not saying anything." (Oddly enough, some White Sox fans are saying this, too.) We hope they can at least reach the playoffs, but their lackluster Cubs-style hitting won't get them anywhere against an American League that is largely playing much hotter.

The Cubs? I hope they finish the season under .500, but I know even that won't hurt the organization. The Cubs are run by a corporation, and all that matters to a corporation is the bottom line. "Did the Cubs brand make money this season?" "How strong were the television ratings?" "Were all the home games sold out this season?" "Do we think we can guarantee high numbers next season?" The Cubs want to grow their team by adding marquee players and managers at the expense of the club itself. Their farm system is mismanaged, and they can't seem to start the minor league players early enough in the season to make a difference. Perhaps we should look no further than the club's president's name of Andy McPhail. The name theory continues...
