The White Sox aim to put their recent miserable, cold and slow starts in the past this season.
After a flurry of moves was made in December, the White Sox offseason has hit a lengthy lull that has caused some frustration among fans.
The Cubs guaranteed $184 million to a player who has never hit 30 homers or driven in 100 runs in a single season, paying for Jason Heyward’s age-26 upside and Gold Glove defense.
Plan A would be the best way to describe this offseason, the Cubs getting exactly what they felt they needed to augment a 97-win team in John Lackey, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward.
This isn’t the NBA, so the Cubs didn’t have to put the full-court press on once the free-agent marketplace opened on Friday at 11 p.m. Chicago time.
