  1. Of course the Cubs season has been a complete disaster, but now the White Sox, who have underperformed all year, look like they might not make the big run fans have been waiting for. I hate to start shifting into football mode this early in August.

  2. My Astros are 24 1/2 out. I shifted to football mode in late April :)
