The Chicago White Sox have a regular-season record that is better than most teams in Major League Baseball. Where do they stand all time?
The Chicago White Sox have one of the top half records in the history of Major League Baseball over the course of their team’s history. A lot of people might find that hard to believe because of the fact that they have been bad recently although it was by design. There are also people who disregard the White Sox because of the fact that they are second in Chicago to the Cubs in terms of popularity. Well, those people who hate on them for no reason are just wrong (at least as far as the regular season).
The White Sox have been a team from 1901 to 2020 so far. Over those 120 seasons, they have a record of 9283-9215. That .502 winning percentage makes them one of 13 teams to be over .500 in their all-time history. The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Angels are both at .500. Only the New York Yankees, San Fransico Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds, and Pittsburgh Pirates have a higher all-time winning percentage.
It doesn’t seem like it but being in the top half of the league is a good thing. The White Sox have been a good team more than they haven’t over their 120-year history. They are hoping that they are close to being a good team once again. 2020 was supposed to be the year that they turn the corner and become one of the league’s best teams again.
The White Sox, despite what some may say, have a deep-rooted history. At 120 years old, it is clear that they are one of the league’s oldest and most important teams. People who say they are irrelevant to the sport have absolutely no clue what they are talking about. They will see what this franchise becomes if they do truly become a contender year in and year out. Realizing that they are one of the better teams all-time in terms of record was really cool to learn.
