The Chicago White Sox could look to the Atlanta Braves for some help.
The Chicago White Sox are really hoping that they can evolve into what the Atlanta Braves have evolved into. They started pretty much exactly where the White Sox started just a few years prior. They have young talent that came up through their organization and helped turn the franchise around. They are now putting it all together on the field and seem to get better every year. If there was a team to hold your hopes on right now, it is the Atlanta Braves.
They were just defeated in seven games by the Los Angeles Dodgers in game seven of the National League Championship Series. The Dodgers went into this crazy year as the undoubted favorites to win the National League so there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are the Braves. When Los Angeles added Mookie Betts, it seemed like a lock that they would get this far and they did.
Despite the bright future of the Atlanta Braves, they do have a few minor moves that will be made this offseason. They are going to need to try and retain a few free agents but the White Sox would be smart to jump in and try their hands at a few. Some of them would be more for depth but there is one that would really help them in their quest for greatness.
The Braves aren’t going to be willing or even able to keep everyone and that is where the White Sox could come in. They have a bright future themselves so maybe some of these free agents would really consider it. These are the three that the White Sox should look at this winter:
