Especially when the Astros are waiting for the winner of that game.

The Marlins won 2 WS as Wild Cards and the Red Sox won 1 or 2.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.

96 win teams are absolutely serious contenders. 6 of the last 10 World Series champions had less than 96 wins in the regular season.

Agree Dollars per wins=total payroll divided by win total

Can someone calculate what the Top 10 dollars per win teams are since 2008

Rays have to be #1 by a country mile. Or dollars per playoff wins, which might be similar.

Is this finally going to reduce salaries, since low payrolls can go pretty far. It's because of this that I feel we may do it again in 2020. I have a hunch magic will happen.

I wonder how many Sox fans Chicago would still have if the Sox moved to St Pete like they threatened. NY and Brooklyn still have Giant and Dodger fans. And who the 1 guy would have been who would have shifted to the flubs :@

If the palehose did move down there, I still think they would have won it all at least once. But they wouldn't have changed the unis to the classic pinstripes we currently have, they'd be in a no-stripes white with a "future looking" WHITE SOX font. In this alternate reality, Illinois would have been awarded a 2nd franchise in 1998, and they'd be playing in Lemont in a cool looking stadium, named the Illinois Lumberjacks.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
