The Chicago White Sox is officially done with the 2021 regular season. It was a great year that led to them going 93-69 which was good for a Central Division title.
It is the second year in a row that they will be in the playoffs which makes it the first time in franchise history that has ever happened.
They are looking for a lot of things to go right in order for that to happen. These are the three best games of the 2021 season that got them to this point:
Winning the AL Central Division
The Central Division title is something that the Chicago White Sox will be proud of.
Going into the 2021 season, there were expectations. We knew the White Sox were going to be a good team. We did not know, however, that the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians would be bad baseball teams for most of the season. Winning the division was always possible but nobody knew it would be this dominant.
On September 23rd, the White Sox clinched the division by winning the first game of a doubleheader over the Cleveland Indians. It was a game where the White Sox played outstanding in a 7-2 victory. They rested everyone during the second game but celebrated hard after that one ended. It was a lot of fun to see everyone contribute to success on such a big day.
This division title was tougher to win than most despite the lack of good teams in the Central. They were missing key players like Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, and Yasmani Grandal for most of the season which makes their season even more impressive.
They probably would have been the best team in the American League if they were healthy all year long. Between guys stepping up and outstanding pitching, winning the division became a reality and it was so much fun to watch.
