The Chicago White Sox have 30 calendar days, including Tuesday, to wrap up the Al Central. They have 30 days to finish what they started and prove the prognosticators wrong. A scant 30 days to hold off the Detroit Tigers and play postseason baseball.
While baseball is a team game, and the little things like hitting the cut-off man can win or lose a game, individual performances are often what set contenders and pretenders apart.
If the Sox intend on competing for a World Series title, five players need to step up and return to the form that has helped the White Sox get to where they are.
The countdown’s on, in more ways than one.
