It's a long shot- but I'm not giving up on a season before Memorial Day- much less Opening Day or in November of the offseason.
The 1972, 1977, 1990 White Sox teams all came out of nowhere- and while the 2005 team wasn't a complete surprise- no one could have predicted the huge improvement vs. 2004.
