Chicago White Sox’s Struggling Beginning Mirrors Recent World Series Champions

The Chicago White Sox began the 2024 season with a four-game losing streak, but they quickly turned things around with a win against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Despite their slow start, the White Sox managed to align themselves with the 2021 Braves in terms of their season statistics through five games. They recorded 28 hits, 11 walks, six home runs, and a .329 slugging percentage at the plate, while their pitchers allowed 11 walks, mirroring the Braves’ stats in 2021 when they went on to win the World Series.

This alignment with a successful team like the Braves is promising for Chicago, especially considering the Braves’ recent dominance in the NL East. However, Tuesday’s win is just one game and there are still 157 regular season games left to play. The White Sox currently sit at 1-4 and are in last place in the AL Central, with minimal postseason prospects according to FanGraphs. Despite these odds, history shows that a slow start like the White Sox’s can still lead to a successful season as seen by the 2021 Braves who won their division despite starting slow.

While a championship may seem distant for the White Sox, most fans would be happy with a winning record.
