As a team, the Chicago White Sox (4-5) are off to a relatively quiet start this season. As individuals, however, there are seven White Sox regulars who are off to very hot starts in 2013.
The question for the White Sox is: Can they stay that way?
For some, the answer is yes. For others, it is no.
The baseline for position players is that they must have appeared in at least seven games and have a batting average of .300 or better.
Pitchers must possess an ERA under 2.50 and at least two starts or four relief appearances with a minimum of 3.0 innings pitched.
These parameters provide a large enough sample size to include in the early conversation. I stress the word early, because it is.
Regardless, here are the seven players who are off to a hot start for the White Sox and thoughts on whether or not they can stay that way.
