3. 2020 is Just the Beginning
The best part about the 2020 White Sox might be the fact that this year is really only the start of what is to come for the White Sox.
All of their young stars are under control for at least the next four seasons and some of them are under control even longer than that.
Most teams in baseball are aiming for roughly a 2-3 year window to win a championship.
The White Sox have a chance to good for much of this upcoming decade, though, which is very rare and something only franchises like the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers ever seem to accomplish.
While some of their players might start getting expensive in arbitration soon, Anderson, Jimenez, and Robert are already on cost-controlled deals because of extensions signed early in or before the start of their MLB careers.
That could leave the White Sox with more money to spend in future offseasons and/or allow them to retain core players like Moncada and Giolito over the long haul.
Sure, winning a title in 2020 would be great and take a lot of the pressure off of this young team in the future.
Even if they don’t make the playoffs this season, the White Sox still have a lot to be excited about and aren’t completely reliant on making the 2020 season “their year.”
