    One thing I would consider, if they are intent on Lewis or Martin being the long term answer, is waiting it out until 2 or three of the SS sign, then get a one or two year deal with one of the others left.

    I would estimate that if the AL was just one big division, the White Sox would have finished 8th. They would have a hard time finishing above .500. 
    Maybe they surprise and finish in 6th place. I really can't place them higher than that. 
    They will be better the next couple years though. Every young team needs these seasons as they climb the ladder.

    The White Sox are being exposed in this series.  Breaking it down to how they did vs playoff teams (13-19):
    HOU 2-5
    BOS 4-3
    Mil 1-2
    NYY 1-5
    STL 2-1
    TB 3-3
    They beat up on just 5 teams (20-8):
    BAL 7-0
    MIN 13-6
    CHI (N) 5-1
    TEX 5-1
    DET 12-7
     
    They were on 39-34 in the 2nd half. 18-24 in one run games. Jusr 16-13 in SEP/OCT. 
     
    They were an average team that beat up on a few bad teams. They coasted down the stretch. Had there been another team challenging them in the division they may not have been able to hlpd them off.

    CLE, DET, or KC could have been that team as well. As I said in my post above CHI cosated because they had no competition.

    It seems as if every playoff team has an opponent or two they dominate. For example, 
    Tampa Bay went 18-1 vs Baltimore
    Milwaukee went 15-4 vs the Cubs and 14-5 vs Pittsburgh
    Houston went 14-5 vs Texas
    The Dodgers went 16-3 vs Arizona and the Giants went 17-2 vs the Diamondbacks.

    I don’t think it’s an AL Central problem. If the Twins has pulled their weight and won 90+ games, the Central would have looked like several other divisions this season. So that’s why I say it’s a Twins problem, not a Central problem.
    As far as the possibility of the White Sox being swept and having this be the fourth consecutive season where the AL Central winner has been swept out of the first round? First, other teams are allowed to be good. But secondly, yeah, that’s a bad look. The Twins have played a big part in that streak. 
    Three different AL Central teams represented the American League in the World Series for 4 out of 5 years recently, from 2012 to 2016. So that tells me that a good team or mid-market team from the Central division can compete just fine.
