Geez, that would be awesome if the Sox won and nobody had picked them. :-D Although I do hope the Astros win. I couldn't stand all of the media about how the Sox won playing small ball.

Which, of course, is complete BS. They ranked 4th in the AL in HR with 199 ahead of teams like BOS and BAL. They were 6th in the AL in strikeouts which is usually a sign of either a) an undisciplined team or b) a team reliant on the HR. They were only 3rd in the AL in SB with 137 which was 22 behind the leader ANA and 14 behind the powerhouse D-Rays, all of this while having the 10th lowest SB% in the league. Yeah, they were a real case study in this ambiguos, ever changing "small ball".

I'd love to see the Sox win it. There would be pretty neat symmetry between the 1917/1918 and the 2004/2005 championships. I'm not sure why I think that's cool but I do. ;-)

Mind you 59 of those steals were attributed to one player. The next closest on the White Sox was Rowand with 16 - hardly a "team" that steals bases. For all the steals Pods racked up, he only converted 72%, which means he cost them alot of runs.

I would really like to know how many of the White Sox's Runs were scored as a result of a home run, and then compare that to the league average. Maybe then we could determine whether or not they did in fact manufacture runs. My guess would be that they relied on the long ball (due to how many they hit during the season).
