From Bob Beghtol, our director of media relations:
The White Sox are on pace to win 96 games, which would tie the 1920 team for the fifth-highest total in franchise history … since baseball expanded to six divisions in 1994, the 1999 Cincinnati Reds, who went 96-66 before losing a one-game playoff to the Mets, are the only team to win 95 or more games and not reach the postseason.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to former Sox manager and all-around great guy, Chuck Tanner, who lost his wife, Babs, following a lengthy illness. Currently a scout with the Indians, Tanner managed the Sox to a 401-414 record in six seasons (1970-75).
