The Chicago White Sox Report

The Chicago White Sox continued to act as patsy as opposed to spoiler in the AL East race after losing to the Yankees last night, 6-5.

The Pale Hose have now been swept in consecutive three-game sets by the Red Sox and Yankees as they head to Baltimore tonight.

Last night, Chicago hit the daily double by both clinching a losing season and by being mathematically eliminated from winning the AL Central division title.
