White Sox Record = Overrated!
The Chicago Whitesox record may be deceiving. Their overall record is currently 30-23. What people fail to mention is that the Sox play in the AL Central. They have a record of 11-6 in their division. Against the AL East they are 14-12 and against the West, 6-6.
The Sox are an average team depending on pitchers like Scott Schoenweis and hitters like Juan Uribe. Uribe was tearing the cover off the ball until this current stretch against West coast teams. He is batting .233 over this span hitting 10-43 in that time. The majority of his hits, six of the ten, came against the Texas Rangers who are not exactly known for their pitching.
The Sox have also lived on the edge in many of their wins. The have won a total of 13 one run games while losing just 4. If the trend continued I would be amazed given the history of Billy Koch. They have not won a game in the fifth spot of the rotation yet this year and last year only winning 3 times in 34 starts.
The Sox will need to acquire help in the outfield, maybe a centerfielder with pop, and a fifth starter to possibly compete with the other divisions. I look for them to make the playoffs and then be well overmatched.
