Cubbies Come Through
The White Sox magic number is now down to 6 even though they have been playing some terrible baseball. Fortunately, the Minnesota Twins have been just as bad. It looks like the Sox will limp in as division champs, but the Twins have one last series against the Sox to steal it away.
As for post season, it is difficult to see the Sox going deep unless they hit one of their torrid streaks. Danks and Floyd have provided solid pitching all year and Buehrle has 14 wins, but they need to come up big time in the playoffs -- if the Sox get there. The Sox have been streaky in hitting, although their power-packed lineup can bust any game wide open at any time.
The Cubs, on the other hand, are built to go deep. They have the best and deepest pitching staff in baseball and are solid at every position. The only thing they seem to be missing is a really big left-handed bat in the lineup. They are, in my opinion, the best team in baseball. They SHOULD go to the World Series, but these are the Cubs, you know. My prediction is that the Cubs will play in the World series this year. If so, major props go to the Cubs management, which really put together a great team, and Lou Piniella, the perfect manager for this particular team.

Meh, Rocktober officially over, Rocktember never even got off the ground this year.

The Cubbies do have a solid shot, and should make it through the NL, but I don't think any NL team is going to be able to overcome the Angels or Rays this year.
