So here we are, 22 games in, 140 to go, 13.6% of the season has passed. What have we learned about these White Sox? Well, we’ve learned that we still are a young club, with some growing pains. We’ve had the early success of Carlos Rodon and Yermin Mercedes to be excited about. Tim Anderson is being TA7, and Nick Madrigal will continue to put the ball in play. This White Sox team is still in a great spot. As we get to the end of the first month of the season, we are 2 games behind the Royals, which is a surprise #1. The Twins that so many people picked to win the division, are residing in the basement at 7 and 15.
As the weather heats up…so will the bats on this team. We will hit, the pitching should get stronger. I am confident that the bullpen will get it’s footing, and be the pen that we expect.
The message…don’t panic. I’ve read so many different blogs, and Facebook group posts that have fans trashing this team, which is really premature at this time. Stay the course, history is full of teams that had great starts, and horrible finishes…and teams that have had slow starts, and then won the World Series.
Go White Sox!!!
