The Chicago White Sox have had a disappointing 2015 season, and heading into the final month there isn’t much to grasp onto other than 2011 St. Louis Cardinals-esque postseason hopes.
Part of the excitement of a lost season usually involves rookies getting auditions during the closing weeks. While we may see more of a youth movement after various September call-ups, for the time being manager Robin Ventura has been insistent on playing for 2015 only, as evidenced by Trayce Thompson‘s sparse playing time.
This is counterintuitive actually because Thompson would be a catalyst for short-term objectives as well, but unfortunately the right minds are simply absent from the dugout.
With that said, here are my five bold predictions for the final month of the season. Some surround individual player achievements and future performances, while another pertains to where I see the team going as a whole.
