Some very good things are going to happen in 2021 for the Chicago White Sox.

The Chicago White Sox had a good year (on the field) in 2020. They were forced to start late but they were good once they were there. There were some bumps early in the season but they really caught fire and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Some of us expected them to be that good and they were which was really fun. They didn’t succeed in the playoffs but sometimes that’s the way it goes for a young team like that.

In 2021, there are going to be some great moments. For one, we hope that fans are able to attend games. As of right now, we should also just hope that there is a season that starts on time but being able to go to games was sorely missed in 2020. There is nothing better than a sunny day at Guaranteed Rate Field with a Polish Sausage or some waffle fries. If we can get back to games this year, that will already be a step in the right direction.

There are some great players looking to take a big step. A lot of rookies were awesome in 2020 and will be looking to be even better in 2021. The potential for this team to have multiple top-50 players is there and if they do, they will win a lot of baseball games.

Don’t be surprised if the White Sox managed to be even better than you thought in 2021. No team in the American League has a significant edge as far as roster right now where we stand on January 1st. We don’t know if the New York Yankees are bringing back their MVP candidate and the Tampa Bay Rays already traded an ace pitcher on a cheap deal. These are three bold predictions for the White Sox in 2021:
