This is the last time I’ll point out that I made some pretty prescient picks about the White Sox this season.

I had them winning their division, the American League Central, over highly favored Detroit. And I had Adam Dunn hitting more homers than the Tigers’ Prince Fielder (the count now stands at 39-27).

Yet I never, ever would have picked Alex Rios to be the epitome of this year’s Sox—unless they were destined to sleepwalk through the season and lose 90 games.
