Hottest and Coldest Chicago White Sox Players Heading into the Second Half
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
Adam Dunn is finally on the positive side of the conversation.

The Chicago White Sox finished the first half of the 2013 season a rather uncomfortable 14 games behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central with a record of 37-55.

It is a record that White Sox general manager Rick Hahn says his team has “earned,” according to CSN.com’s Dan Hayes.

He's right, and other than the frenzy of trade activity that is quickly approaching, White Sox fans have very little to be excited about as the second half approaches.

One thing to follow, though, is whether or not the hottest players on the 25-man roster can continue their torrid paces, or if the coldest ones can pull themselves out of the mire and find a way to get back on track.

Now, in order to keep this list as focused as possible, the criteria for inclusion here is specific and based solely on their July performances.

For pitchers, the baseline was an ERA under 2.50 or above 6.00, while position players had to be hitting above .300 or below .230.

While there are three players in each category, I have added a seventh player whose mental mistakes negate his success at the plate.
