The Chicago White Sox must sweep the Royals to keep playoff hopes alive
We are only into the second week of the MLB season, but the Chicago White Sox already find their backs against the wall. With a slow start to the year, the White Sox find themselves in fourth place in the AL Central. I know that only two games separate them from first, but if the team cannot find a way to sweep the Royals this weekend their playoff chances are going to drastically dwindle.
Expectations were high for the White Sox this season. The expectations came from not just fans alone. The organization and the national media has even been high on the White Sox chances and future. Even though most did not see the team as a World Series contender this season, the team was viewed as a playoff contender. Unfortunately, a shortened season does not allow the young team to work through its growing pains.
