Entering the season's final two weeks, Steve Stone joins CTL to discuss what lies ahead and where the White Sox mood currently stands - 9/20
Each game now is a world unto itself you don't have yesterday you don't have tomorrow yet. -- -- I think you can worry about is this ball club here in Kansas City which has been. Plenty tough enough to worry about -- six and eleven against this ballclub this year and so. Knowing that and going it's a pitcher Jeremy Guthrie who in three games is yet to give up an earned run is -- 887. And two thirds. That's just O'Leary had us work cut out form they got all they can handle here with the Royals. They -- Dave van -- let's look at the whole thing it as we go along here at the last when we get two weeks basically. That. The white sacks to me have a much harder schedule I mean they brought to Anaheim in and play a team that's right in the middle of everything. Then they get Tampa Bay which is right in the middle of everything too -- that's a pretty tough remaining schedule. I don't doubt that for a minute although I don't think that Tampa Bay is right in the middle of everything in fact I think if you look at Tampa Bay you realize. How difficult is going to be for them to get even close to the wildcard so they're a tough team. Joseph Maddon has made sure that they're gonna play hard every game that I don't believe they're gonna make it this year I think they're probably gonna have to wait till next year. And that's because of a lot of different things that went out largely because nobody expected Baltimore to be where they out. -- Angels are concerned that's going to be a tough task there's no doubt about that but we do face Ervin Santana in the started that series. Then we have to worry about -- and Weaver but we'll get to that in a minute that's a very good Angel ball club and obviously with my -- doing what he does. That team has gotten better and better and they are making a modified run at the wildcard although they have a while ago yet they get Jets at Oakland team in Oakland. As David said is pretty good ball club so we might have a touch her schedule but don't forget the last and the Tigers looked at Kansas City. They got swept by the relations and although they've dominated the Royals this year. The Royals -- playing good solid baseball and Atlanta they run out there every day minus their starting pitchers been pretty good. So I would say that that was seven games left against the Royals and that's what the Tigers have let there be a cakewalk for them.
