The Rays lost. The Twins are on the verge. Things are starting to come into focus.
For once the division may offer some real, tangible spoils, and though we always preach “just make the playoffs” the Sox do have a 1-8 record against the Angels.

We understand the “be careful what you wish for” factor, but all things on paper being equal, the White Sox (and, of course, the Rays) are the target. Tonight the Sox send Tim Wakefield to the hill in Arlington, looking to clinch this series with the Rangers.
