2015 AL Central Division Preview

1. Chicago White Sox 92-70
Robin Ventura carried a big offseason bat this winter. David Robertson. Jeff Samardzija. Melky Cabrera. Zach Duke. He is playing to win. Even Will Ferrell made a stop along the way. Crosstown fans in Chicago will be upset because they believe it is their year to win.
Jose Abreu could contend again for the AL MVP award and I believe Chris Sale will finally win the Cy Young this year. The White Sox with the depth in the rotation and bullpen could not only win the Central Division but be serious contenders to take the pennant this year. Melky Cabrera will stay healthy and off PED’s to contribute highly to this team this year.
My White Sox friends are quietly and cautiously optimistic, but they are contenders this year. They also tell me that this is Avisail Garcia’s break out year for which I not so quietly laugh.
