Based on how the White Sox were crumbling in the last month of the season, it seemed they had little chance of winning a playoff series, let alone the division. Four complete games later, they dispatch of the Angels. The Angels could not get much going in any of those games, with their biggest bat Vladimir Guerrero — who I have seen hit a homerun from a pitch in the dirt — batting a whopping .050 for the series. Ouch. So the Sox are in for the first time since 1959, with a chance to match the last White Sox champs: 1917. Think they have a chance? A month ago I would said no, but they may have changed my mind.
