Chicago White Sox 2011: 10 Things That Must Go Right To Get Back That 2005 Feel

The 2010 season ended on sour notes for Ozzie Guillen's Chicago White Sox. After battling into mid-September for the division title, they fell out of contention when the Minnesota Twins thumped them in a three-game sweep that month. Bobby Jenks and Guillen had a nasty falling-out, and Guillen only narrowly kept his job after a highly-publicized quasi-feud with GM Kenny Williams.

Williams did not hold his frustration with Guillen against the team, though, and instead, he made several aggressive moves. A.J. Pierzynski and Paul Konerko will be back after re-signing as free agents, while Adam Dunn and Jesse Crain are expected to make this team better. The White Sox feel as though they belong atop the AL Central this season and are contenders for the American League pennant. For that to come to fruition, though, these 10 things must go right.

This is the sixth in a series of pieces listing 10 things that would have to go right for each MLB team to win a pennant this season. To find out when your favorite team's article comes out, follow me on the twitter @MattTrueblood, or sign up for your team's Bleacher Report newsletter.
