This upcoming offseason could be one of the more important offseasons in recent memory for the White Sox. What would be the perfect signings?
With the White Sox slowly creeping up on what can potentially be the peak of their rebuild, it’s time to start thinking like a winning team. What I mean by that is I personally believe it’s the appropriate time to start strategizing and making moves as if the Sox were a given first place team.
The offseason is quickly approaching our Sox after we were able to get a glimpse of the future with the 162-game display this past season. With that being said it is now evident in our roster where the team needs to improve and where they appear to be just fine for now.
So now that we are already two games deep into the World Series, the free agent class of 2018-19 is slowly creeping up on us. It is a class that stands superior to those of the last five years or so. Not only is the talent of the class tremendous, but the amount of youth included is an eye catcher as well.
The amount of players aged 30 or under is rather large in this year’s class. This benefits the Sox tremendously. Considering at one point the Sox held the lowest average age in the entire major leagues, it is obvious that their approach is to stay young and fresh. This is perfect for general manager Rick Hahn, who can pursue free agents this offseason while keeping the team young.
