Yes Joe, that’d be the D-Troit Tigers heading to the Post Season.

I can honestly say I’ve been here before; but for some reason, it does not feel the same.

Soon after the White Sox lose game 1 in of their 3-game series against division-leading Detroit, I will say, as I’ve said in years past: “Fuck this shit!”

This year’s team was supposed to be better than last years; we upgraded our rotation, we upgraded at DH (though Frank makes us look like tits [see comments]); we had Bobby Jenks for the whole season. But no; half-baked-Freddy, Huntin’ Mark, El Titanic Contreras, and Five-and-dive Javy couldn’t put together a decent string of victories early on in the season. I mean, Jon Garland was our staff ace! Now with the offense in a funk; with an overrated manager who cannot put together a decent lineup against lefties (essentially forfeiting the game before it starts); with a Playboy model for a left-fielder, this team (yes, it’s a ChiSox rant) is again at it’s underachieving finest.

We’re now 6 out in the central, 4.5 in the wildcard.

Fuggedabaouit. I’m rooting for the Mets in the post season.
