Of course, it is hard for a pitcher to become one of the greatest players in team history but if anyone can do it, Lucas Giolito is the guy on the active roster. Of course, guys like Michael Kopech and Dylan Cease have the stuff to get it done but Giolito is the young guy who has accomplished something on the field for a longer period of time.

In 2018, Lucas Giolito was statistically the worst starting pitcher in the league. That offseason, he put in the work to come out of the funk that he was in both mentally and physically. In 2019, he went from one of the worst to one of the best. He was so good that he was an American League All-Star and a sixth-place finisher for the Cy Young. It was one of the best turnarounds that any White Sox player has ever had.

Going into 2020, people wondered if Giolito would be able to keep it going. Well, instead of coming in sixth place for the American League Cy Young, he came in seventh. He also threw his first career no-hitter in a completely dominating fashion. Thinking about what he can do going forward is very exciting. If he continues to be the ace of this staff and they win a World Series or two, there is a chance he becomes known as the White Sox GOAT.  At a minimum, he should be in the conversation for White Sox pitching GOAT.
