The White Sox beat the Angels last night 6-3, and so are in the World Series for the first time since 1959.
I'd be a lot happier about this if:

The White Sox absolutely annihilated the Angels -- I don't think I've seen any postseason series in which the losing team seemed so absolutely out of it, not even any four-game sweeps in recent memory. The four consecutive complete games thrown is the first time that's been done in any postseason series since 1956.
