Could happen I guess. I like the trade for Youk though.
I expect it to happen, but I am also enjoying this season.  I agree about the Youk trade though, he has given the team a huge boost, which they needed


It helps too that Adam Dunn is hitting better.

Right now Dunn is batting .208 with 25 home runs and 61 RBIs. Dave Kingman would be proud.


Yep, considering last year he had half that total of HRs for the year. Yeah, he IS hitting better than last year. How about those last place Twins? I bet they could use both Kingman & Dunn right about now?

Yes the Twins could do with Dunn's home runs, and Kingman's if anyone has a time machine, although the greater culprit in the Twins' poor season is pitching. If you're looking for an argument on this point, you're in the wrong place.

That said, from the time you posted to the present, Dunn's batting average dropped from .211 to .208. I have him on my fantasy team and have watched his numbers closely.

As it happens, Dunn's stats right now very much mirror those of Dave Kingman's with the Mets in 1982 when he led the NL with 37 HRs, had 99 RBI, but batted .204 which was lowest of any player who had enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title that season. At least Dunn has plenty of RBIs. Otherwise he'd be slipping into Rob Deer territory.

Dunn has already drawn more walks this half-season than Kingman did in any full season in his career.

May have started. The loss to Boston last night was a killer.

Justin Verlander is still really good. So are Prince Fielder & Miguel Cabrera. Biggest game of the year for the White Sox tomorrow. Chris Sale needs to come up huge.

Yes he does.  If Chicago comes out of Detroit in second place, they will never get back into first

I have to agree with Mike.

The White Sox won't come close to first place again. this year.

I have enjoyed the White Sox ride this year, but I know they have been overachieving big time, so I have been expecting this.

Maybe they can manage to get a WC berth, which would be nice, but I really do not expect it to happen

I think The Angels will get one of the Wild Card spots. I'm not sure which team will get the other one. Oakland is hot right now but I expect them to cool off soon. The White Sox and bunch of other teams have a chance.

I honestly think the other WC is coming from the AL East.

White Sox need to play Minnesota the rest of the season, this way they can win

They are now tied with Detroit at the top of the Central, which honestly surprises me
