Your Chicago White Sox lead the AL in road wins.
We are tied with Astros for MLB lead in road wins.

This is very promising.

But we're only .500 on the road. If we didn't have that 6 game losing streak and say we split that and go 3-3 instead of 0-6. We'd be 16-10. We've played way too many road games. And to be 13-13 in them this early in the season is very good.

.500 on the road + .667 at home = 95 wins, which I think would be enough to win this division the way things have been going. I'll take that, but we need to pick it up at home, because we're off that pace a bit right now.

We're not playing .667 at home, we're 9-7, a .560 clip. A .500 road record is alright by me, but it depends on what we do at home. Usually, the White Sox are a very good home team, but playing .667 at home is asking a bit much don't you think?

Fans just need to cheer harder I guess.:shrug:

Is reminds me of what Rongey talked about for a bit on the post game last night

He said: Stats that compile a number and dont look at an average really mean very little. So wins for a pitcher, saves, hits, homers, etc. are bad stats to look at to see how well a team or a player are doing

Sure, we lead the league in road wins. we probably lead the league in road games played.

We're second in road games played, tied with Toronto and one behind Houston.

Atlanta is like an NBA playoff team this year, 15-5 at home and 6-16 on the road.

After today's game is completed, the Sox will have played 27 of their first 43 games on the road.

Given this schedule, we should be among the leaders in road wins. Nothing to write home about.

True, but I do think it is encouraging that the Sox are playing .500 on the road with so many road games, especially having self-inflicted a 6-game losing streak in the middle of this stretch.

Well, it's more of a general guideline that comes from the expectation that a good team will be .500 on the road. If we play at .580 on the road, then obviously .667 will not be necessary at home to achieve 95 wins. The wins have to come from somewhere, and if they don't, we won't make the playoffs, plain and simple.

While the fact the Sox lead the AL in wins is a product of the schedule, it's encouraging to see the Sox in first despite playing 10 fewer home games than the Indians and 8 fewer home games than the Twins.

Big deal. The Sox are also tied for second with the most road losses.

considering we've played at least two series more than most teams on the road...i'll take it

I'm encouraged by that stat regardless of many road games they've played. If they keep it up, they'll be fine.

With the Sox playing a lot more games on the road, I think the main thing is the 1.5 game lead may actually be more than that in the long run if they dominate at home.

A 4-2 week this week would be very good, before heading back on the road with Cleveland and Tampa.

7-6 the next 13 would be just fine.

Now the Indians hit the road while we get some love at home.

the sox are positioned to lead the division for several weeks.

There are only three teams in the AL that have a winning record on the road, KC, LA and us.

8-10 Cleveland on the road

7-12 Minnesota on the road

small sample sizes, but I remember looking a week ago and seeig the twinkies something like 14-7 at home and 2-8 on the road.

Because of the Twinkee Dome, I expect numbers like that for Minny.

We also lead the league in fewest games played at home. We have played less games at home then the scrubs have won at home. That should tell you something.
