The Chicago White Sox could prioritize deep postseason experience in free agency.
The Chicago White Sox are one step away from being a World Series team. They have proven for two years in a row now that they can dominate in the regular season. Now, it is about winning that first playoff series and seeing how deep they can take it.
There are lots of players out there that can help bring that level of experience to the White Sox clubhouse and that needs to be the priority. At this point, nobody has that experience as fresh as the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves. Jorge Soler isn’t the only one available.
White Sox fans should remember Eddie Rosario well. He is a very good player that spent the first six years of his career with the Minnesota Twins before starting the 2021 season with Cleveland. They traded him to the Braves mid-season and he went on to be a big part of their championship squad. They rebuild their outfield at the deadline and he was one of the pieces.
Rosario, like Soler, showed that he can be a clutch hitter in the playoffs as well. Soler was the World Series MVP but Rosario was the NLCS MVP. That type of experience and attitude is something that the White Sox desperately needs.
Hopefully, the team adds another bat or two. They are going to be a very good team regardless of what they do but we should be thinking about that next step now. They already have superstars so they should concern themselves with playoff performers that can help in October just as much.
