It's not a world-beating team, but the White Sox are my early pick for the AL Central, edging out the Tigers and a little above the Twins.
The team's not headed for a 95-win season, but they are generally solid without a lot of major holes, though they could use another bullpen arm. It's still anybody's guess as to what Sale's role will be, so I'm leaving him split for now (and likely will if it's not very clear-cut at the start of the year). The team's depth isn't that great, but Kenny Williams is always aggressive about improving the team, whether it's landing Peavy, picking up Ramirez's money, or taking a risk and picking up Alexis Rios's contract (a much better risk than picking up Vernon Wells). Not all of his moves work out, but the saying is Audaces fortuna iuvat, after all.
The team could improve their odds without the constant fascination with leftfielders that hit like mediocre centerfielders. Luckily for KW and The Ozzie, they're in the Central division and not the East.
Adam Dunn was an inspired move for the White Sox - he came far cheaper than the other top hitters that aren't pushing 40, he can DH, and the Cell is an excellent HR park without being a big hitters' park overall. Signing McPherson could be sneaky useful from AAA if an emergency pops up. He could play the field, but it's probably safer not to let him with an injury record nearly as poor and even longer than Eric Chavez.
