Chicago White Sox 2014 Preview

Rebuilding, reloading; two words Sox fans must accept this season.
After you lose 99 games, the first goal has to be .500 baseball, not contention. That is only realistic for this team if the starting pitching, led by Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and John Danks, performs like one of the best units in the AL.

Rebuild and restructure are words the Chicago White Sox have preferred to avoid for decades, primarily because that has not been the game plan. They were a Go For It franchise. Maybe these two words fit better for the Sox strategy for 2014 — overdue overhaul. The message was pretty clear long before the Sox finished with 99 defeats and went 26–50 inside the AL Central. General manager Rick Hahn moved briskly to shed payroll, dealing Jake Peavy and Alex Rios in July, and then got more determined to build a younger, more athletic team during the offseason.

Adam Dunn used to be a good baseball player. He was one of those guys that you penciled in for 35-40 homers every year. Sure, eh struck out a few times, and sure, you'd never mistake his batting average for Ichiro's, but he was a guy who did one thing (hit homers) and he did it well.
