Chicago White Sox: Grading Each Position at the All-Star Break

The Chicago White Sox lead the American League Central Division by three games at the All-Star break, which is something that almost nobody expected to be saying or hearing this season.

The truth is that not only do the White Sox lead the American League Central, but they also own one of the best records in baseball.

They are definitely a surprise team so far this season, but they aren't doing this with smoke and mirrors—they are a solid baseball team.

With a mix of young and old talent on the roster, the White Sox are finding ways to win ball games and appear to be one of those teams that just has the right makeup and chemistry to be dangerous.

Even with several injuries, particularly to the pitching staff, they just keep plugging guys in and rolling along.

What's almost unheard of is that the current 12 man pitching staff contains seven rookies, and yet the White Sox haven't missed a beat.

Offensively they have gotten production from almost everyone in the lineup led by their captain Paul Konerko as well as A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, Kevin Youkilis—and the list goes on.

They have a new hero almost every night and that is the sign of a dangerous team.

At the All-Star Break, the White Sox appear to be the team to beat in the central, but the Indians and Tigers are lurking close behind.

They will have to continue to play at a high level in order to hold off both of these teams, and in order to do that, they will have to get continued production from every position.

Here's a look at how they fared at each position in the first half of the season.
