The Chicago White Sox has a superstar in Tim Anderson so it good that he is okay with getting baseball back by any means necessary.
The Chicago White Sox saw Tim Anderson take a major step in 2019. He was so good at the plate that he won the Major League Baseball batting title. He hit .335 to do that and had a very good WAR of 3.7. It was a very good year for a guy that this team is heavily reliant on to help them take it to the next level. Well, he has also become one of the faces of this franchise for more than just his play.
He was the man with the bat flips, leadership skills, and social media presence that also helped him get known along with his numbers. Well, he is also motivated to take it to the next level as a team and as an individual. He is clearly going to be a part of this team for a long time and that is good to know. He wants to win with the Chicago White Sox.
Tim went on Kap & Co. of ESPN 1000 with David Kaplan to talk about the chance of the season starting in May with some adjusted rules. He was very loud with some of his thoughts on the whole thing. He admitted that leaving his family behind to be quarantined for a few months would be difficult but it is a sacrifice he is willing to make. He said that he knows that baseball is what helps feed his family so he is willing to do it.
It is good to know that a guy like Anderson is out there speaking on the issue. His opinion matters in the eyes of a lot of people which is good. Obviously, we want it to be safe for everyone involved but baseball could be a way for this country to start to heal from all it has gone through. Anderson is open to the idea as long as he can get back to the game that we all love.
One thing that Anderson said that was interesting, was that he is okay with any rules they throw at them as long as they are playing. If they have an electronic strike zone, seven-inning games, or quarantined lives during it, that would surely change the game for a little while but if most players have similar mindsets to Anderson the game might be able to return.
