Roughly one-third of the way through the MLB season and…it’s clear that the Chicago White Sox are a contender for the AL Division Crown. As I mentioned before, any team that is overwhelmingly picked to win that division in March is usually not in contention in June.
The White Sox are the only team in the AL Central with a positive run differential, and while Paul Konerko won’t continue to have a .434 BABIP, barring injury, he is in line for his third consecutive .300/30/100 season. At age 36. After taking a pitch to the face against the Chicago Cubs.
Put another way: Paul Konerko is the man and the White Sox should allow me to have a pleasant summer!
