2. Luis Robert Jr.
The Chicago White Sox wasted a 5 WAR season from Luis Robert Jr.
The Chicago White Sox had a lot of hope for Luis Robert Jr. as he was coming up in the ranks. When they first signed him, they had a belief that he could be an MVP-caliber player at some point in his career.
Well, in 2023, Robert Jr. was incredible. He will be top-ten in MVP voting when it all comes out later this year. He should be incredibly proud of the year he had and try to build on it.
He should not be proud of what the White Sox did around him though. They were horrible. Usually, teams do what they can to surround a talent like Luis Robert Jr. with more good talent but the White Sox took the talent away.
They also don't do anything to make this team better although one of the best hitters in team history is just getting started. Don't be surprised if another year or so of this goes by and Robert Jr. wants out.
It would be nice to see them commit to winning before that happens though so they don't do him dirty once again. This is an amazing player that deserves to be on a winning team.
