Season Trend

Below is a graph of where the White Sox have ranked over the course of the season.

And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the White Sox this week:

ESPN

White Sox ranked 20th - "A dismal week for the White Sox saw few highlights, but Chris Sale was on his game once again on Saturday. The Chicago ace threw eight scoreless innings, struck out eight and yielded just three hits against the Athletics."

Sports Illustrated

White Sox ranked 20th - In Jonah Keri’s weekly power rankings he selects four teams to write about. Although your team was not chosen this week, Jonah’s work is well worth the read.

USA Today

White Sox ranked 20th - ".500 season would be a moral victory."

Bleacher Report

White Sox ranked 20th - "The Chicago White Sox split the week with a series loss to the Cleveland Indians and a win over the Oakland Athletics, leaving them five games under .500 in their pursuit of a winning record for the first time since 2012.

It was another good week for the duo of Chris Sale (24 GS, 15-6, 3.15 ERA, 1.026 WHIP) and Jose Quintana (25 GS, 10-9, 2.84 ERA, 1.117 WHIP) as they continue to jostle for position in the AL Cy Young race.

Early Wynn (1959), LaMarr Hoyt (1983) and Jack McDowell (1993) are the only players in White Sox history to win the award, but there's a reasonable chance that a fourth name will be added to that list this year.

A groin injury to Miguel Gonzalez has opened the door for Anthony Ranaudo to prove he deserves a longer look as a potential rotation candidate in 2017, and he's in line to make two starts this coming week."

Reddit

White Sox ranked 20th - "Congrats to Jose Quintana who won ten games in a season for the first time in his career."
