Even if they weren't in that position, manager Robin Ventura wouldn't be considering his team's remaining postseason possibilities.
"Again, we've got more than a month," Ventura said. "With two weeks left, you probably look at that a little bit more. You know, if you don't win games now it's not going to matter anyway. So continue to play, continue to just focus on what you're doing.
"Maybe closer to the end you can get a better sense of what's going on and how you're playing. But right now, continue to play well."
Ventura was told that one-time White Sox manager Jerry Manuel used to look at the standings around the Bud Billiken Day parade in Chicago, which takes place Saturday. Ventura smiled and had a quick response to that idea.
"He can look," Ventura said. "I'll look later.
"I don't feel like we have to change anything. You still have to play your game that night. You can't control anything on the scoreboard anyway, so there's really no sense of sitting there looking at it every day. It will just make you play worse."
