MLB  > General MLB  > The White Sox: can they pull away or is the All-Star break going to kill the momentum?

Its roundtable time!!!

Dan: They need to keep rolling, but I don???t think the All-Star is going to hurt them too much. The Tigers have a very dangerous team and I don???t think the White Sox can take over the division from the Tigers. I think the Tigers win the division, but by a game.

Joe: No one can play at that pace for the duration of the season. They will return to being closer to a .550 team than a .830 team. Expect a fight between the Tigers and the White Sox until the end of September.

Matt: They can???t pull away because they???re not that good. A hot streak is fine, but the team just lost Peavy and can???t expect its offense to stay this ridiculously hot for much longer. Minnesota and Detroit are solid teams, and won???t fade away. I expect both to consider deadline deals that could strengthen their teams. This should be a 3-horse race for as long as the White Sox can hold up, but don???t expect the likes of Freddy Garcia to keep over-achieving forever.

Rich: The AL Central is nowhere near finished ??? the Twins, White Sox and Tigers are all going to be in that one till the end. The Twins are perennial 2nd half teams, especially the last couple of years.
