White Sox: The offseason officially begins today
The Chicago White Sox begin their huge offseason officially now that the World Series is officially over! Hopefully, it brings them what they need.
The World Series is officially over. The Washington Nationals are the champions of the baseball world after beating the Houston Astros by a final score of 6-2 in game seven. It was a game that the Astros led late but the Nationals came back and won. Now that the season is over, all 30 teams can look to the offseason and see what they need to do to be even better in 2020. This offseason is extremely important to the Chicago White Sox, who see it as a time to improve the roster enough to help it take the next step next season.
There is a lot of excitement surrounding them as they have built a great foundation through drafting, trades, and international free agent signings. Now that the 2019 season is over, they can really look forward to what is ahead. General manager Rick Hahn knows what he needs to do to improve the team and there is plenty of reasons to believe he will.
Most fans feel like they need to add some pitching, upgrade the right field and designated hitter positions, and insert their top two prospects into the lineup. Those top two prospects are Nick Madrigal and Luis Robert and everyone is super excited to see them join the team and become a part of the core. We have already seen players like Yoan Moncada, Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Cease, and Lucas Giolito come up and get their careers going and now it is their turn.
They know they need to resign Jose Abreu who has been there through some good times and bad. They know there are some free agents out there and a couple of guys who can opt-out of their current deals that they can target. They have the money to spend after missing the two big free agents last year. Missing those two players might be a blessing in disguise as they can use that money more wisely. This is going to be a great offseason for the White Sox so look forward to the moves that they might be able to make.
