52-10 the record of the 62 teams who have taken a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven postseason baseball series. Of the 10 teams to have blown that comfortable, one-win-away margin, the latest and most infamous was...wait for it...the CHICAGO CUBS.

The White Sox are all too familiar with the fate of their Northside brethren in 2003, thanks to the media deluge on Steve Bartman and the fact that Ozzie Guille was third-base coach for the eventual World Series champion Marlins. Ozzie's line after the game was, "Don't let the monster wake up." Uh...right.

Hyperbole aside, Ozzie's looking to put his foot down on the throat of the Angels and send the Southside into bedlam for their first Series in 46 years.

Game 5 - Jose Contreras v. Paul Byrd, 6:30 PM tonight.
