Excuse my excitement, but I am having a hard time keeping it contained this offseason. The White Sox have shocked me, along with most of the baseball world by all their additions this offseason.
The White Sox have targeted their weaknesses and filled the majority of the gaps on their roster with the additions of Zach Duke and David Robertson in the bullpen, Adam LaRoche to hit behind Abreu, and Jeff Samardzija who is going to fit very nicely behind Chris Sale in the rotation.
As a lifetime Sox fan, I am not used to this much excitement in an offseason, and it has me excited to watch a White Sox team take the field for the first time since about 2006.
The Sox have definitely been a surprising team this offseason. Look for them to add a couple more pieces to this team. The way I see it, they can contend right now, but adding another reliever and possibly a left fielder sets them at a solid contender level. It'll be interesting to see what other movers GM Rick Hahn can pull off. Rick, you have my attention. Keep making this team better.
