The coronavirus has likely shortened the 2020 MLB season, if not killed it altogether. The Chicago White Sox have seen this before.
Long-time Chicago White Sox fans will remember 1994. That was supposed to be the year – the year they’d finally win it all for the first time since 1917. The 1919 Black Sox curse would be shaken off, and the Sox would win the World Series before the long-suffering Chicago Cubs would, making it even sweeter for those South Side fans who measure their team’s success against the team based 8 miles north.
After all, the 1993 team was pretty damn good, although they ran into a buzzsaw in the American League Championship when they faced the eventual champion Toronto Blue Jays.
