The "Crosstown Classic" is less than a week away and if things go as planned, the White Sox should easily win the series, if not sweep it. The following numbers show the difference between the White Sox offense and the offensive, offense of the Cubs...


*OFFENSE*
Statistics: CUBS/WHITE SOX
Shutout: 5 times/0 times
Scored 1 Run: 6 times/3 times
Scored 2 Runs: 3 times/2 times
Scored 3 Runs: 8 times/5 times
Scored 4-7 Runs: 11 times/16 times
Scored 8+ Runs: 4 times/10 times

Scored 0-2 Runs: Cubs 14 Times/White Sox 5 Times
Scored 4+ Runs: Cubs 15 times/White Sox 26 Times


I put these numbers together as I was trying to see if the White Sox have been shut out yet. They are one of only four remaining teams that have not been shutout yet. The other three teams = San Francisco, Philadelphia, and the New York Yankees.


*PITCHING*
Statistics: CUBS/WHITE SOX
Pitched Shutout: 0 times/2 times
Allowed 1 Run: 7 times/6 times
Allowed 2 Runs: 5 times/4 times
Allowed 3 Runs: 3 times/4 times
Allowed 4-7 Runs: 11 times/13 times
Allowed 8+ Runs: 11 times/7 times

Allowed 0-2 Runs: 12 times/12 times
Allowed 4+ Runs: 22 times/20 times


Believe it or not, the two team's pitching stats are very similar. The offensive stats, however, are obviously different. This SHOULD be fun weekend for all Sox fans :cool: .

Here's a stat for you:

Chicago White Sox - 1st place
Chicago Cubs - 5th place

(Not meant to be a personal attack, merely stating the obvious)

It is not as easy as it seems to compare pitching or offense between leagues because of the DH. The Sox are blowing the Cubs away offensively, but they are helped because they have a DH, while the Cubs send a pitcher up to humiliate himself four times a game. On the other hand, the Sox' pitching is considerably better than the Cubs, seeing as we have to face a DH instead of the pitcher. There is a huge difference between facing a .188 hitting pitcher or a .300 hitter with 30-40 homers and 100+ RBI.

However, as others said, only one stat matters, and that is the World Series title.

Anyone have any stats on the number of times the White Sox were shut out last year compared to the league average?

I've never actually typed "LOL" before, but I think it might be the only appropriate response.

Anyone have any stats on the number of times the White Sox were shut out last year compared to the league average?

I looked up some numbers on baseball-reference, and did some quick math.

We were shut out 7 times last year

The AL average was around 8.5 times, the NL average was around 9.5. The MLB average was 8.7.

The Yankees were only shut out 2 times,
Seattle, Tampa Bay, Boston, and Baltimore were shut out 5 times
The Angels, St. Louis, and Atlanta were shut out 6 times.
Texas, San Francisco and the White Sox, 7 times
Florida, the Cubs, and Cincinnati were all shut out 8 times
Pittsburgh, Philly, the Dodgers, and Arizona 9 times.
Minnesota, Kansas City, Detroit, and Colorado all shut out 10 times.
Cleveland, the Mets, and Washington, 11 times
Oakland, Milwaukee and San Diego, 12 times
Toronto was shut out 14 times
Houston was held scoreless an amazing 17 times.
