The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / The White Sox are on the rise

The White Sox are on the rise

The Chicago White Sox began the season as maybe the biggest disappointment in baseball. This team was several games behind first in the American League Central, and there was plenty of speculation about their future.

They’re now at 61-56, one game behind the Cleveland Guardians and in first place in the division.

White Sox Could Return

According to MLB.com, there was plenty to say from White Sox players.

“Get him in the zone. The main thing. First and second, I want to get the ball in the air,” Sheets said of his thought process as he stepped in for Lenyn Sosa. “I didn’t want to hit something on the ground and get a double play.

“He went to the breaking ball, and my main thought was get something in the air and get something in the strike zone. I was able to do that, and I was just hoping Seby was going to score.”“It’s a different kind of pat on the back, five innings, he gutted it out,” La Russa said. “He threw a lot of pitches because he wasn’t sharp and they’re good. I’ll remember this one when I think about him a long time because [it could have been], ‘Man, it’s not my day.’ That’s not what he did.”“I was disappointed. It wasn’t my sharpest outing,” said Cease, who threw 93 pitches. “But it was close enough to keep us in it, and everybody else picked me up. Getting the win definitely helps.”Verlander wasn’t too happy with how he pitched, according to MLB.com:“It doesn’t matter top of the order, the bottom of the order, middle of the order, I don’t like giving up runs, especially in that situation late like that,” Verlander said. “Not happy about it.”

The White Sox seem to be putting it all together and have a legit shot at winning the AL Central. Can they make a deep postseason run? My guess is no, but if you have to get in to get a shot at it, this team looks like they could be headed to the postseason.
