Hope springs. Not feeling a lot of it right now, but any baseball is better than a 6 month winter. .500 is out of reach. Worse than 2013 isn't. The pitching has me scared silly.

Surprise me, guys.

Better than last year, but the usual. In the race until early September, Tigers pull away and we're at the .500 area to end season. 76-82 wins

It will be a challenge for them to win more than 75 games w/ the unbalanced schedule and the Royals, Indians, and Tigers strong. While I'm excited for the young players, 1/2 will be decent and develop and 1/2 will probably stink. W/ no veteran core, that does not bode well. I do think the pitching will be decent, however. Also, really dig Garcia- could be a Mags w/ slightly less power...

83 wins.

Abreu- RoY

Avisail Garcia makes All Star team.

Nice bounceback season for Ramirez.

Johnson establishes himself as a work horse RH starter in the rotation.

Dunn plays his last game with the White Sox- much rejoicing.

Sox bring back diamond patch.

75-87. I just hope Abreu and Garcia become solid hitters by the end of the summer.

Default The Impossible Dream.

I'm a believer in the Impossible Dream. You have to dream big in life and think positive, otherwise you can become another Jay Mariotti. I said earlier that the White Sox will finish 100-62. I would like to change my prediction. I feel they will finish 106-56. It will be easy to achieve that this season. I firmly believe A. Garcia is the real deal in right field. With the additions of Eaton, Abreu and Davidson the White Sox have a great core of players who will contribute big time in 2014. I like our first 3 starting pitchers of Sale, Quintana and Johnson. John Danks will make a great comeback this year and Paulino will give the White Sox a solid 5th starter. When all of this happens this year I figure making the 2014 Playoffs will be easy. The White Sox will be one of the big stories in baseball in 2014.

Yep, on both counts.

Would rather keep DeAza for his hitting/speed combo and flexibility and move Viciedo for some futures (Catcher, please) while his potential value is fairly high.

IMO, Axe looks to take a step up this year if the Sox stop using him as a starter. Considering our other options below setup, he could move up in the bullpen mix.
