If you ask anyone that cares about the Chicago White Sox you could likely hear that the 2013 season is one that they would like to forget. That might not be the case however as many things were started last season that will continue as good moves this season. It appears that Opening Day 2014 will raise the curtain on a new era of younger and more competitive baseball for the White Sox.
1 – Adam Dunn: As long as Dunn sticks around he will remain the biggest home run threat on the team.
2 – Jose Abreu
3 – Paul Konerko: The logjam over at first base and DH could be a good or bad thing but for now having Konerko around should easily be a big plus.
4 – Gordon Beckham
5 – Adam Eaton
1 – Chris Sale
2 – Jose Quintana: The White Sox need Quintana to be as good as he has ever hoped to be this year. Look for a very good overall effort from him in 2014.
3 – Erik Johnson: It might seem premature to place Johnson here but his potential is high enough to warrant his placement this high up.
4 – Nate Jones
5 – Matt Lindstrom
1 – Adam Eaton
2 – Jose Abreu: There is a lot of hope tied up in this guy. He looks like he could be worth most of the hype going into 2014 so that would be great news.
3 – Scott Downs
4 – Erik Johnson
5 – Matt Davidson: Even if his impact is part time here and there or in a September call-up, Davidson is a big plus this year.
1 – Matt Davidson
2 – Jose Abreu
3 – Erik Johnson: Look for a potential Rookie of the Year run from Johnson this season.
4 – Tim Anderson
5 – Marcus Semien
There are a lot of new faces on this team and they are actually growing into one of the youngest teams in MLB. That doesn't mean and should not suggest that they are going to struggle this season like they did last season however. Look for a big upswing this year in almost every area of the game.
Final Record and Season Prediction: 85 – 77, 4th in American League Central, No Postseason
