Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs
A few observations while I’m watching football, old movies and the “other guys” in the baseball playoffs: 1. It was very disappointing to watch the Tigers open up the ALDS vs. the A’s–and win. I would have liked our chances against the young A’s. 2. I count 15 former White Sox major and minor leaguers... Read more »

Look at it this way: The White Sox have a bigger division lead than the Yankees
It happens over the course of a 162-game season.

I never thought I’d say this, but it’s a relief to leave Kansas City and come home to face the mighty Yankees.
