The Chicago White Sox have been waiting for the season to get going and the newest rumor has them playing in a brand new Central Division.

There is a new proposal going around right now that seems to be gaining some steam. This is a proposal that would see the season start in late June and have three 10-team divisions. The Chicago White Sox would be in a division with all of the teams that are closest to them geographically. This new Central Division would consist of the White Sox along with the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals, Kansas City Royals, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Minnesota Twins, Atlanta Braves, and Detroit Tigers.

That is some division when you look at it. It is certainly one filled with some really good teams like the Braves and Cardinals and some lousy teams like the Royals and Tigers. The White Sox would have a chance to be one of the better teams in the division but it would take some good play to stay consistent. This could honestly be a good way for them to get some valuable experience and learn that in order to beat the best, you have to beat the rest.

This season is already extremely unique. 20 years from now, it will certainly be viewed as one of the crazier years in the history of the world, and baseball is a major part of it. This is something that every fan should sign up for because baseball at any capacity would be good right now.

This is a chance for the White Sox to develop a rivalry with some of the local National League teams that are close to them. The St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, and Milwaukee Brewers would be fun to have as division rivals even if it was for one half of a season. A team like the Atlanta Braves is another elite team to worry about.

Of course,  the big thing would be having the Chicago Cubs as a division rival. That would be something that is so amazing for this rivalry. These teams are pretty close to each other in terms of skill sets right now so the games would be great. Chicago is also right in the middle of this group of teams so the travel probably benefits these two teams the most. This could be a chance for Chicago baseball to run the league.
