The Chicago White Sox are hoping that they can get to the World Series with the core they are building and they can learn something from watching this one.
The Chicago White Sox had one of the unlikeliest World Series runs in 2005 as nobody really pegged them in Spring Training to be contenders. Since then, they haven’t had much of any success at all as far as making the playoffs. They won the A.L. Central in 2008 after winning an epic game 163 against the Minnesota Twins, but that is the only playoff appearance since winning the World Series in 2005.
Now, the 2019 World Series is set to get underway tonight when the Washington Nationals play the Houston Astros. It is set to be a fantastic series. Both teams have superstars in their starting lineups, and both teams have a top-flight pitching staff. Each team is a little different from the other but the are build in very similar ways. They both are drafted and developed on top of adding high-level free agents and making great trades.
This is going to be a fantastic series for all baseball fans. People all around the world are going to be treated to some of the best hitters in the world dueling some of the best pitchers in the world. It is something that the other 28 teams in baseball should be watching and learning from. No one is more than the Chicago White Sox, who have a very young and inexperienced roster that people believe is going to take the next step in 2020.
It is still to be determined whether or not they turn the corner next year, but a good start would be learning from these two great teams on the world’s biggest baseball stage. Each team presents something different that a young White Sox team can learn from:
