Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox currently sit third in the AL Central, two games behind the first-place Cleveland Guardians, and three spots shy of Wild Card position–a major contrast from last season when the team took the AL Central title marking the first back-to-back playoff appearances in franchise history. The White Sox have struggled with inconsistencies all season but according to closer Liam Hendriks, cockiness has been part of the problem.
“That’s one thing that several have said is we just expected to come in and roll over [opponents] like we did last year,” Hendriks told reporters at MLB.com. “That hasn’t been the case. It’s been to our own detriment of us thinking we can go out there and roll over teams and be expected to win. Now, looking back on it, I think a lot of guys are realizing it’s not just an easy thing to be able to go and win the division two years in a row. That’s something hopefully we can get back. We are moving in the right direction.”
The Cleveland Guardians have surged to the top of the AL Central and while they certainly aren’t the flashiest team in the league–boasting the second-fewest amount of home runs in the Majors and one of the lowest payrolls–the Guardians have managed to win games through a smart, consistent, and aggressive style of play–what Guardians team manager Terry Francona calls “doing the little things”. The Guardians rank second in the AL in stolen bases and have the fewest amount of strikeouts in the Majors.
