Check your station's listings; there's no guarantee that these stations all broadcasat every White Sox game.

The Sox are now 3-1/2 games up on Cleveland, so what I said last week about the Sox still making the playoffs is a little more iffy (although they're five ahead of the Yankees, the next team in the wild card hunt. Again, if the Sox go 6-6 the rest of the way, the Indians have to go 9-2 to tie; the Yankees would need to win 11 of 12. It's the White Sox' playoff spot to lose, and there aren't a lot of great teams in the AL this year (frankly, the World Series trophy will likely reside, much as it pains me to say, in St. Louis). Keep an ear and eye out.
