2. Chicago is Making Moves
There is a chance that I am a bigger fan of these signings than most, but that will not affect my ranking. As far as I am concerned, these two stars (plus a couple of pitchers brought in by the White Sox) make this White Sox team a wild card contender. The White Sox may now have the best set up of a lineup in spots one through five. Here is how the line-up should look with all nine batters.
CF Melky Cabrera
1B Jose Abreu
DH Adam LaRoche
There are some bright, and underrated spots, in those bottom four. But that top five has to put a smile on every White Sox fan’s face.
2015 Stat Predictions: LaRoche- .290 BA, 31 HR, 89 RBI (14th AL MVP voting)
Cabrera- .312 BA, 17 HR, 65 RBI (20th AL MVP voting)
