Chicago White Sox’s Struggling Beginning Mirrors Recent World Series Champions

Slow Start, Big Turnaround: Chicago White Sox Align with 2021 Braves Through Five Games but Still Struggle to Keep Pace in the AL Central

The Chicago White Sox started the 2024 season on a four-game losing streak but turned things around with a win against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Despite their slow start, the White Sox managed to align themselves with the 2021 Braves in terms of their season statistics through five games. They recorded 28 hits, 11 walks, six home runs, and a .329 slugging percentage at the plate, while their pitchers allowed 11 walks, mirroring the Braves’ stats in 2021 when they went on to win the World Series.

While this alignment is promising for Chicago, it is important to remember that Tuesday’s win was just one game and there are still 157 regular season games left to play. Currently, the White Sox sit at 1-4 and are in last place in the AL Central with minimal postseason prospects according to FanGraphs. However, history shows that a slow start like the White Sox’s can still lead to a successful season as seen with the 2021 Braves who went on to win the World Series despite starting off slow.
