Chicago White Sox

41-45(11 GB and 5.5 out of the WC)

What went right

  • Chris Sale has been the most dominant pitcher in baseball.  It’s a shame he doesn’t run support.
  • The bullpen.  David Robertson has earned his money.  The unit as a whole seems to be better and deeper than last year.

What’s gone wrong?

What should we expect in the 2nd half?

This team “won” the off-season according to some experts.  They’ve been doing a lot of losing in the regular season and I’m actually amazed as to the fact they are only 4 games under .500.  I’m expecting this team to sell some of it’s assets when they have value and get back some solid pieces in return. If Samardzija, Alexei Ramirez, and LaRoche are still on the team come August then Rick Hahn has let me down.  Look for a managerial change at the first sign of a prolonged losing streak.  Bring back Ozzie!!!
