The White Sox have completely collapsed, a huge part of which was the Indians last series win over Chicago. Unless both Cleveland and Detroit get swept this week, the Sox are officially out of the playoffs in 2012. 

The Indians seem to  have a newfound motivation with the introduction of Sandy Alomar, Jr. as manager. This team, which has struggled all season scoring runs, has won two of their last three by scoring 8, 6 and 15 runs respetively. Even the pitching staff seems to have rebounded under Alomar (with the exception of Scott Maine, who apparently was a fan of Manny Acta). This series could be a sign of things to come if the Indian stick with the guys they have now (Alomar, Russ Canzler and Shin-Soo Choo are all unknowns in 2013) so enjoy this last series before the long offseason.

Anyone remember Ozzie Guillen in 2005? How about 2006?
