2003 Dodgers Redux?

Yes, perish the thought, I know. Nobody ever wants to see that again. But Robert Tagorda broaches the subject, cursing the 2005 White Sox with the possible comparison. The seven White Sox fans who care should see this as an ominous portent.

Relatedly (but off the subject), for years, the Harold Reynolds/Joe Morgan/"Baseball Whig" camp has been claiming that Moneyball doesn't work, and even if it does, "How could Billy Beane possibly fail with the Big Three pitching?" But, of course, even though the White Sox are currently winning with a Team ERA of just a little over 3 (which must be significantly lower when adjusted for the park effects of playing at US Cellular), now "Smallball" is working. Sure, guys.
