Though the 2011 MLB season for the Chicago White Sox has not been as successful as forecast, the team is only 3.5 games back of the Detroit Tigers for first place in the meager American League Central. 

The key component to the surge for first is the same for any team looking to capture a playoff spot: beat the divisional opponents.

The White Sox are in prime position to take control of the AL Central. They have a big week at home playing the Red Sox and Yankees, but the key is to take out the teams competing for the same prize.
