End Of The 10-Game Segments
The White Sox have completed their last 10-game segment of the year. And, not surprisingly, the segments were as mediocre as the team:
Two 7-3 segments (both were after the Sox were out of contention)
Five 6-4 segments
Three 5-5 segments
Five 4-6 segments
One 3-7 segments
There were no high highs (9-1, 8-2), nor were there low lows (1-9, 2-8). The Five 6-4 segments were cancelled out (mathematically speaking) by the five 4-6 segments. Of course, that's how it has to work out for a .500 team. The good parts are cancelled out by the bad parts.
If you're curious, here's how the Twinkies went this year:
That's three 8-2's, two 7-3's, five 6-4's, one 5-5, three 4-6's, and two 3-7's. Roughly speaking, the big difference between the Sox and Twins was that they didn't have the same number of 7-3 and 8-2 stretches. The Twins did, including three 8-2 stretches after game 90 of the season. That's how you win a division, folks.
