Top 5 Storylines For White Sox And Cubs
1. The Emergence of Cubs Rookie OF Seiya Suzuki
Given his defensive abilities and power at the plate, as well as his strike zone awareness and speed, there really hasn’t been a Japanese player who has come to the U.S. quite like Suzuki. Not Ichiro and not Ohtani, because Suzuki is a batting title contender and a home run threat. By mid-summer there should be plenty of Suzuki Cubs jerseys in the bleachers at Wrigley Field.
2. The Cuban Crushers: White Sox Power-Hitting Middle of the Order
Few teams can contend with a mid-lineup power trio like White Sox crushers José Abreu, Luis Robert, and Yoán Moncada — all of whom hail from the tiny island of Cuba. The Sox will score loads of runs, likely more than enough to run away with the AL Central division title again.
3. Which White Sox pitcher will contend for the Cy Young Award?
The Sox have two legit Cy Young contenders: Dylan Cease and Lucas Giolito — either of whom would be aces on just about any other team. Giolito is listed at +800 to win the Cy Young, and Cease is at +3000 at Caesars.
4. Are Hoerner and Madrigal The Future For Cubs In Middle Of The Diamond?
It’s been a long time since the Cubs had two homegrown middle infielders they were thrilled about. The last time was second baseman Ryne Sandberg and shortstop Shawon Dunston in the 1980s. The 2022 Cubs have Nico Hoerner and Nick Madrigal up the middle, and this is the year they should learn if the duo will be the future or not.
5. Can White Sox Move Past The First Round of AL Playoffs?
Last October the Pale Hose were bleached out of the playoffs by the Astros in a series that showed how much better other teams are than the AL Central champions. Are the Sox a power team in the American League, or just the best one in a weak division? They’ll have to win a postseason series to earn respect.
