G140: White Sox 8, Red Sox 1

Jose Contreras (4.23) / Kyle Snyder (5.94), 7 PM

Could the pitching arms of Julian Tavarez, Kason Gabbard and Kyle Synder lead the Red Sox to a three-game sweep of the defending World Champs? Amazingly, we're 2/3 of the way there.

Tim Wakefield threw another simulated game today and could return to the rotation next week in Baltimore. ... Jon Lester will hold a press conference at Fenway at 6:30 pm (updates here).

Cool Standings estimates Boston has a 1.1% of making the playoffs, while Baseball Prospectus puts the odds at 1.6%. ... Maybe I'm fooling myself, but it doesn't seem that bleak to me. (5%?)

Watched this game on the local Chicago channels. I know the White Sox commentators are known as the biggest homers in baseball...but you're lucky if you could catch this one on ESPN. Hawk was bitching and moaning about the difference between the Red Sox and White Sox's days off in September (4 for us, 2 for them)..."that's some BULL." Of course, he failed to recognize that we haven't had a day off since AUGUST 17TH - and that pennant races are usually decided more in August than September, I'm sorry to say.
Ugh, Chicago is the worst.
