The Chicago White Sox want to be the defending World Series champions like the Dodgers.

Any rotation headlined by Clayton Kershaw is likely near the top of any list. This season is no different. The Dodgers had the best ERA  in the National League last season, finishing with a 3.29 mark. Kershaw looked like he found the fountain of youth in 2020. His command was much improved and his velocity was up.

Along with Kershaw they also have Walker Buehler, Julio Urias, Dustin May, and Tony Gonsolin. Of that group, only two of them are true starters: Kershaw and Buehler. The rest of that group was sprinkled in the bullpen as well. That won’t be the case for long as May and Urias appear to only be scratching the surface of their talent and should cement a place in the starting rotation this upcoming season.

Buehler, meanwhile, is only 26 years old and he already has finished in the top ten of the Cy Young voting, top three in the rookie of the year voting, an all-star appearance, and a World Series ring.

The Dodgers also have David Price, who opted out of the 2020 season and looks to be a contributor this upcoming season. If that is not enough, the Dodgers still have their number one prospect Josiah Gray waiting in the wings.
