Talk about the worst time ever to make this post. They are just starting a very difficult road trip and it looks like they will drop the second in a row in boston tonight (thanks to some really bad umping and some bad coaching by ozzie). The Tigers are not a good team, but the Sox are worse. No way they are pulling this out.

And I love the Whitesox. Luckily, I think they are in good shape for the next couple of years, so that takes the sting away...a little.

Whether it be the Tigers, White Sox, or Twins, the division winners will be backing in. All of these teams are not very solid.

The Twins have the most solid offensive team, but their pitching staff is in shambles. The injury bug has hurt all 3. The White Sox have a killer schedule from here on out making their stretch run harder than the other 2 contenders. The team with the best shot at playing .500 ball here on out is the Twins due to a softer schedule and for no other reason. Making up the 4 games on Detroit will be tough.

None of these teams are any better than the other overall.

It's immaterial who wins the AL Central. The World Series will likely involve the Yankees vs. the Phillies. I just can't see anyone else being able to beat either team in a playoff series at this point.

Thats not true. Winning a division and earning a playoff spot is still really exciting for the city/fans. Even if you are a heavy dog in the first round of the post season.

Heck both the tigers and the whitesox could luck their way into winning a first round series. The MLB playoff format is such that if your top 3 starters go out there and throw A+ games, you earn a spot in the ALCS.

That is what every one said in 2006; right before the Tigers CRUSHED the Yanks in the ALDS.

Not any more. During the weekend in New York it looked to me like they quit. As amusing as Guillen's quotes are, I am not sure he can come back next year.
