How will the White Sox get along with the doubles and Indians in the AL



Who knows what the price of the Division Championship in 2020 will be.


With the Major League Baseball season starting on Thursday night, the post-season format of these extraordinary seasons has picked and replaced the sport similar to the NBA and NHL playoffs. Eight teams from each league, three division winners on each side of the bracket, three second-placed teams from each division, and then two teams with the best record will make it even harder for the sixteen teams to reach the postseason this year.

In 2019, only seven American League teams were in the top 500. In 2020, eight American League teams will make the playoffs and have a chance to compete for the World Series title.

It did not take long to log in. The White Sox have been talking for months about ending this playoff drought season that has lasted more than a decade. Those who have won only half of their games have no plans to do so.

Before baseball could find a way to add more than 20 national television games to the play-off sports money-making machine, the White Sex was able to compete for their central title with their division rivals. Winning a regular-season match against the Minnesota Twins and the Cleveland Indians does not seem to be the glory they achieved 24 hours ago, and all three teams are expected to reach the post-season in ways similar to the World Series. But that would be a reference to the growing advertising for this White Sox team.

Remember the last time they played the game, the White Sox ended a season in which they lost 89 times. Going from 72 wins to the division title will go a long way from rebuilding mode to competitive mode. No big deal to suggest that this White Sox team can do it, a young core that exploded in 2019, a pre-office Rick Hahn built by senior free-agent additions in the winter, and exciting young players are still coming to the South for the first time.

The play-off look is tainted with this new look. By opening day 2021, more than half of the leagues will be able to fly any flag at their ballparks. For the White Sox and their fans who have not enjoyed baseball since the Bush administration in October, George W. Bush. They are happy to take another step in this reconstruction process.

They think they can do it for sure.

"You saw people like me, you saw the work they put in. You see the maturity over the last few years. You see their performances are based on strong positive expectations," said manager Rick Renteria. "I want to stonewall you. The players still have to go out there and do what they do, but we definitely have players and some men with the club this year (to compete) on any team).

"Can we compete with everyone? Absolutely 100 percent."

How do the White Sox win in the division? For all the excitement on how these South Ciders go into 2020, they need to jump two good teams to dominate AL Central‌.

The Minnesota Twins have 101 wins in 2019. The White Sox have 39 against the White Lines pitching, with a record 307 home runs. The selection is better than last year after MVP candidate Josh Donaldson was included in the twin's off-season. After returning to his top-level production with the Atlanta Braves last season, he will be a thorn in the side of the White Sox for the next half-decade and his career number against new division rivals will be alarming: 15 home runs at 353/44 with 44 RBIs.435 / L66.

Although the twins are expected to continue on the path to victory, their pitching staff is given the opening. Jose Berrios has a star for twins above rotation and he is definitely the best. But after him? Jake Odorizzi is already on the list of those injured. Michael Pineda has been suspended. Rich Hill, 40, started just 13 last season. Homer Bailey has had a URA of less than 4.50 since 2014. Another former Los Angeles Dodgers division Kenta Maida is not bad, but far from intimidating. Of course, this is a good way to capture this whole rotation.

White socks pitching can be a problem for twins at the ballpark, but twin beginners have more trouble with white socks bats.

There are Indians who missed the postseason a year ago. The Terry Francona club always seems to be in the mix, to be behind the dominant opening pitches again this year. Cleveland traded Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber last calendar year, but baseball still has great spin. Mike Clevinger and Shane Bieber came first, while other weapons such as Carlos Carasco, Sach Plessak, and Aaron Civale have the potential to provide an anti-lineup fit any night.

But Indians have the opposite problem of twins. Despite the excellent starting rotation, the lineup is high enough to collapse. Yes, Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramires are two of the best editors in the American League, and the MVP is typing both. Carlos Santana and Fran Ois Reese, yes, they give a little pop. But the rest of the lineup didn’t match the twins and white socks in the editing section except to scare.

Of course, you do not need to run much when your pitches are better. So we should not be surprised that Indians are running every season.

To be clear at this point, the White Sox may have something these teams don’t do: balance.

Their remake lineup feels like strength to the team, as the weeks go by, with more than half the players in their first year with the team: Yasmani Grantel, Edwin Encarnacion, Nomar Masara, Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal. The first four names on that list should help the White Sox with the power problem they faced in 2019 when they were at the bottom of the league in home runs and slugging percentages. The great thing is, at the very least, it’s good to bring some basic skills to the range they need. Mash those newcomers with a quartet of Eloy Jimenez, Jon Moncada, Tim Anderson, and Jose Abruzzo who showed what kind of power they have last September - this is a deep group.

The pitching staff has the biggest question marks. The White Sox are likely to have 1-2 punches on Lucas Giolito and the Dallas couch, but it remains a mystery whether they will get out of Dylan Seas, Reynolds Lopez, and Carlos Roden. The thing is, all of those young men pack tons of capacity, which gives them a solid roof over a solid yet rich veteran collection.

If using that this group has never done before, the White Sox will have a lot to do to reach the heights. The success of these long-built white socks is bizarre as the 2020 season slows down, but it is unclear what will happen in the next decade. If these things go right, and the questions are answered positively, the White Sox will not appear in the neck-and-neck race with these two teams until October. They have no reason to be the best team of these three.

All of this will begin soon. The White Sox opened the season with three games with the Twins on the South Side and then moved to Cleveland with the Indians with three games. Without time to evolve, a
