The Chicago White Sox have done a lot of good things over the past few seasons. Now, the fans have every right to be optimistic about how 2020 will go.
The Chicago White Sox have a lot of hype. They added so much to a team that made vast improvements in 2019 compared to 2018. There are a lot of people who are excited about this team. There are also people who want everyone to pump the breaks on all of the hype. The truth, it is okay to be very excited about this team. There is nothing wrong with thinking this team has a chance.
There are people who got mad at Eloy Jimenez for saying Luis Robert is “going to be the next Mike Trout“. Why? Maybe he won’t be the next Trout but being a very good player is something that everyone should hope for him. Fans should be so happy that these guys are so confident in their teammates. Jimenez thinking that Robert can be as good as Trout might be an over-exaggeration but it is fun to see him have that much confidence in him. There is no point in calling Jimenez “dumb” for his comments.
The good thing is that anything can happen in baseball. Robert could very well be the next Trout. Maybe he won’t be one of the greatest baseball players who ever lived but he can be a five-tool player at an elite level just like him. If that happens, the White Sox have a good chance at being one of the better teams during the 2020s.
Those are the things to keep in mind when watching the 2020 season. They have a great team that you have every right to be excited about. Don’t let anyone tell you differently either. That is what being a fan is about. Having faith in this team is what will make 2020 even more spectacular, especially if they are good. Being optimistic is very okay. Show up to Guaranteed Rate Field this year and support this team. It is time for the South Side to take over Chicago baseball.
