It has finally happened. Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association have come to terms on a deal. There will be baseball played at the highest level in 2022. For the Chicago White Sox and all other teams around the league, this is great news.
The Chicago White Sox went 93-69 in 2021. It was one of the best regular seasons in the history of the team. They didn’t have success in the postseason against the Houston Astros but that left everyone hungry for more.
Now, we will get that in 2021. Players will report to spring training in a few days’ time and the regular season will start on April 7th. They will play 162 games as well which is the best news about all of this. The regular season was slightly extended on the calendar and there will be a few doubleheaders needed.
There will only be nine-inning doubleheaders and extra innings will go back to normal which is great news for the game. It is finally an exciting time to be a baseball fan again. There are great things ahead for this great sport.
The Chicago White Sox are ready to play baseball in the year 2022.
With superstars at multiple positions, the White Sox are ready to take the next step. They need a few more additions to their lineup in order to do so but free agency still has a long way to go before the season starts in a few weeks.
We can only hope that Rick Hahn is able to give Tony La Russa a few extra options at each position so that he can get the most out of this team. With stars like Luis Robert, Michael Kopech, and Dylan Cease amongst others ready to explode, the White Sox are going to be a very good baseball team.
Fans have dealt with a lot of garbage over the last 99 days. It is a shame that spring training isn’t going right now uninterrupted but what we have now is better than nothing. There is a lot to settle before Opening Day but the White Sox are in very good shape. Hopefully, they can do what they need to do in order to be division champions (and beyond) once again.
