What would have happened if the White Sox players did not get greedy and decided to play like they did during the season?

The cards were created by bongoplyr. The score in brackets represent the actual score.

It was more than possible that Cincinnati would have won that series anyway even if the Sox had played full-bore. They were not a bad team.
