The Chicago White Sox are an incredible baseball team. This is one of the best teams in franchise history and they haven’t even reached September. They have serious aspirations of winning the World Series right now.

It started by trading away a player like Chris Sale who might be a Hall of Famer in the middle of his prime. Putting together some really good drafts, other great trades, and awesome free agency work, they have become one of the great teams in the MLB.
As they head into the playoffs, they are trying to show that they can be one of the best teams in the league. They just went 7-7 in a 14 game stretch against the New York Yankees, Oakland A’s, Tampa Bay Rays, and Toronto Blue Jays. It could be better but it could certainly be worse. It is fine now that they just defeated the Chicago Cubs in two games out of three.
