The first month of the season for the Chicago White Sox was a bad one, to say the least. The team entered the season as heavy favorites to win the American League Central Division and expected to compete for the World Series. Instead, the White Sox went 8-12 in April and struggled across the board. Moreover, both the Cleveland Guardians and the Minnesota Twins swept them as part of a brutal eight-game losing streak.
Bring on May.

The White Sox haven’t played themselves out of contention. In fact, despite the awful month, the team is only 4.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins in the division. However, the disappointing start raised questions about the White Sox. How good is this roster? Did the baseball world overlook their underlying issues, and could the struggles continue to hurt the team?
