The Chicago White Sox official site wrote about how the young talent of the White Sox will continue to lead them in the second half of the season.

The article quoted manager Robin Ventura on the young talent of the team:

"“We’ve had spurts where we play well and spurts where we didn’t play that well. We’ve had a lot of games that we could have won that we didn’t win. You wish you were in a better spot.”"

I like how the White Sox have moved towards the younger players this season, plus anything we’ve seen this season, even the blown saves and ninth inning losses, is better than the season we watched last year.

The two best parts of this season thus far have been the arrival of Jose Abreu and the dominant pitching of Chris Sale, but we’ll look more at them later today in a couple different articles on Southside Showdown.

The best part of this “youth movement,” at least to me, is it brings some hope to the fans and eventually it will all pay off in the standings. Maybe not this year, but down the road the youth of this team will play their way into a very solid team.
