The Chicago White Sox is one of the best teams in Major League Baseball after the pre-All-Star portion of the 2021 schedule. Going into the break, they are 54-35 after sweeping the Baltimore Orioles. They have won 7 of their last 10 games and lead the American League Central Division by 8.0 games. To say things are going well on the southside would be putting it lightly because they are legit World Series contenders.
The White Sox are in first place despite lots of adversity in the first half.
When we say World Series contenders, that does come with a disclaimer. They have had terrible injury luck this season. Players like Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, Nick Madrigal, and Adam Engel have all spent a lot of time on the Injured List.
