Sox & Cubs out in a blink
So in an effort to remain unbiased, just a quick announcement that the Chicago White Sox are crap too. They were overpowered at home last night by the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2
meaning the Rays took the series 3-1 and progress into the final of the American League. The White Sox limped into the play-off's with injuries to Carlos Quentin, Joe Crede and starting pitcher Jose Contreras for the final month or so and according to some just did well to make it, but with Cubs exit the baseball lights have been turned off in the windy city for at least another year.
It is hard to fathom for both sets of supporters that after a 162-game season that starts and ends in almost winter the Cubs lasted just four days in the post season and the White Sox five!
Now the Rays will play the lucky Red Sox for the American League title and in the National League conquerors of the Cubs, the LA Dodgers will play Philadelphia Phillies. Games are best of seven.
