CHICAGO – It’s just about that time for the White Sox as they look to do something they haven’t since the 2008 season: Win the American League Central division championship.
Remember, in 2020 the White Sox ended up taking one of the Wild Card spots in the postseason, so the 13-year streak is still alive for at least a few more days.
Tony La Russa’s group has a “Magic Number” of nine as they start their series with the Angels on Tuesday at Guaranteed Rate Field. The number reduces each time the White Sox win a game or the Indians lose one, since they currently sit in second place in the AL Central.
That means the club could clinch the division title within a week, doing so for the sixth time in franchise history, joining the clubs in 1983, 1993, 2000, 2005, and 2008.
Larry Hawley devoted his “TikTok Sports Talk” to this topic on Tuesday on WGN News Now, and you can see that in the video above.
