White Sox 93-58, 1st, 3 GA 585,202
There really was no season quite like 1906 in the annals of Chicago baseball. For the first time since the Sox started in 1901, they and the Cubs finished in first place and faced each other in the World Series, an event which would not happen ever again. In fact, the Sox and Cubs would not finish in first place in the same season for another 102 years.

White Sox 92-60, 2nd place, 2 GB 687,419
The 1905 White Sox improved a bit from 1904, winning 92 games. They actually had the most wins in the AL that year, tied with the Philadelphia A's. So why didn't they win the pennant? Because the A's played four fewer games and finished 92-56. The AL did not make up cancelled games in those days, so the Sox had to settle for second place. Guiding them this year was second year manager/centerfielder Fielder...
