Chicago White Sox

The White Sox were a horrible team in 2013 and no doubt were extremely frustrating to their fans with so many meltdowns and lost leads a year ago. This made for a rough year for the most famous White Sox fan, their announcer Hawk Harrelson.

On a side note, if you have a few minutes, this compilation of sad Hawk from last year is priceless.

But will Hawk’s “Good Guys,” be better in 2014? PECOTA says so.

Coming off a 63-99 season, the White Sox are projected to go 75-87, taking fourth in the AL Central, ahead of Minnesota. - CBS Chicago

I think a 12-game improvement for Chicago is a stretch and I don’t think they’ll finish in front of Minnesota. The White Sox are in full rebuilding mode and are young. They seem to have some nice pieces in place for the future (namely first basemen prospect Jose Abreu), but they still seem to be a 60-something win team.

    The Twins wouldn’t lose their first round pick because it’s the fifth overall pick and therefor protected. They’d lose their second rounder.

      Thanks for the clarification on that Tony. It makes more sense for them to do it then.
