The Chicago White Sox are a mostly cheap franchise. They don't spend a lot on players that can help them take the next step as an organization. They had the seventh-highest payroll in the league last year and it was spent the wrong way which makes it even more frustrating.

The one year that they kind of spend a little bit, they have guys like Leury Garcia and Josh Harrison in the lineup regularly. It is a shame to watch this unfold the way that it has but they do have a chance to change the narrative.

They could spend a lot of money during the offseason but most of us believe that they are not going to do so. Regardless, it is still fun to dream.

One player that is a dream scenario when it comes to the White Sox is Jacob deGrom. He would fit in so well with the Chicago White Sox and it hurts to know that they wouldn't even consider bringing him on. He is one of the best pitchers in the history of the sport.

The Chicago White Sox would look so good with Jacob deGrom.

deGrom is a free agent after all these great years with the New York Mets. He was a little injured at times during the 2021 and 2022 seasons but was one of the best in the world when he has been healthy for the last decade.

Not only would his value come in with his ability to throw a baseball 60 feet 6 inches, but he would also be able to help mentor the young players on this team that are trying to have 80 percent of the career that he has had.

He might be able to help someone like Lucas Giolito get back to the form that he once had. Kids like Michael Kopech, and Garrett Crochet (who are wildly talented) might be able to grow their games as a result of his presence.

If someone like Dylan Cease could possibly take another step, deGrom would be the guy to ask how. He knows what it takes to become the best at this craft known as Major League pitching.

Another thing that separates deGrom from some of the other Hall of Fame pitchers from his era like Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, and Clayton Kershaw. He hasn't won a World Series yet so that burning passion to do so still lives in him.

He came close in 2015 when the Mets lost to Pedro Grifol's Kansas City Royals in the Fall Classic but haven't been close like that since. Again, it is a dream but it is so fun to think about all the good things he'd be able to do for this White Sox organization.

Next. The new Charlotte Knights gear is so amazing. dark
