The Chicago White Sox needs to have elite bullpen arms in order to win big.

The Chicago White Sox has a lot of really good relievers. We don’t know if Michael Kopech, Reynaldo Lopez, or Garrett Crochet will be starters next season but it is certainly possible. However, you would think that at least two of them remain in the bullpen. With Craig Kimbrel, Liam Hendriks, and Aaron Bummer there as well, they really should only be using top-of-the-line relievers.

Mike Wright Jr. is a nice player but the White Sox don’t need nice players. They need elite players and Wright isn’t an elite player. There is a reason that he has been on multiple teams before this season where he landed in Chicago. He might be able to develop his craft a little bit better with someone else but not on a World Series team right now.

We can only hope that the White Sox are using their best relievers down the stretch and into the playoffs this year so next year needs to be even better. They will be a much healthier and more put-together team in 2022 which is scary based on how good they’ve been this year. Hopefully, Wright Jr. finds a home but it can’t be with the White Sox next year.

The White Sox are so deep that we are able to talk about who doesn’t deserve to make it through the offseason and they will be players that are decent at times. This team should only be looking at the best of the best at this point so cutting bait with some “just okay” players is a good idea.
