Could Be a Big Weekend

The White Sox, of course, can close it out today against Boston. The next two games are at Fenway, so the Chisox have their work still cut out for them, even though they're leading the series 2-0. The good news is Freddy Garcia has a tremendous advantage in day games (5-3, 3.49) and on the road (10-3, 3.40) -- his overall record is 14-8, 3.87. The bad news is none of that means anything in the playoffs.

I'm a Cubs fan, but let's hope the Chisox can make it to the next level - if only so I can call them the Sox again to avoid confusion.
