Yoan Moncada is probably the best overall player on the Chicago White Sox. He was acquired in a trade with the Boston Red Sox that sent Chris Sale over to Boston. It was a trade that appears to have benefitted both teams. The Red Sox won the World Series in 2018 and the White Sox got a potential MVP candidate out of it. White Sox fans should definitely be thankful that he is a member of this organization.

Moncada received some MVP votes in 2019 and they were well deserved. He had the third-best batting average in the American League. He is only gonna get better from there in 2020 as one of the leaders of this team. Moncada has a ceiling as high as almost any player in the league. He is capable of putting the team on his back whenever they are in need of a big performance.

The main reason Moncada should mean so much to fans is the fact that he represents the rebuild. He was the main piece in the Sale trade and was one of the first young players to be called up to the big club. He was the symbol of hope for a long time. Now that he has almost reached his full potential this team is ready to turn the corner.
