Chicago White Sox Baseball – The Chicago White Sox are predicted to finish 4th in the AL Central with a record of 75-87, based on the recent PECOTA Projections. PECOTA is a saber metric system used to forecast players’ performances. So, does this mean that White Sox fans are in for a long season? Robin Ventura will certainly have his hands full with a young roster to work with and while the future looks bright, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the South Siders prove a lot of people wrong this year. Robin Ventura recently had this to say about his team:

“They are excited, I know that, and that’s another thing that’s good to look forward to. Going into Spring Training, you have guys that are eager and hungry to do something and they are talented, which is good.”

AL Central: Anybody’s Division

The AL Central always seems to be up for grabs, so if the Sox can come out of the gate strong and stay competitive all while the young players develop, anything is possible. These expectations should play right into the hand of the young White Sox roster because it helps relieve the pressure and they can just go out every day and play baseball. Even if a division title is not in the cards, who’s to say the scrappy White Sox can’t finish with a .500 season? Sure, with so many question marks to start the season, it is easy to see how so little can be expected of the Sox.

How will the Cuban Sensation Jose Abreu turn out along with the other young players? How will Adam Dunn/Paul Konerko handle their roles and perform? How will the new look outfield do with Avisail Garcia and Adam Eaton? What will the starting rotation look like?

Spring Training is Coming

As Spring Training begins, we will have to wait a few months before any of these questions are answered. Whatever happens in 2014, it should be a fun year to see the White Sox as they look to build a bright future for hopefully many years to come. But, I’ll tell you one thing, if you have those Cubs fans friends eager to bet on the better record in Chicago, my money is on the White Sox and based on the Cub’s projections, it’s easy to see why.
