Chicago White Sox Pick
Under 90.5 Wins
In February, I projected the White Sox at 88.9 wins. Based upon current projections from ATC, Davenport, FanGraphs, and PECOTA, their win total projection ranges from 80-91; so there is a ton of variance within their range of outcomes. The injury to Eloy Jiménez (projected 2.5 WAR) was a bit of a game-changer which lowers their floor, and generally opens things up within the AL Central.
While I could certainly see this White Sox team winning 100 games and solidifying itself as the AL favorite, the downside also seems to outweigh the upside. I played one unit on their under prior to the Jiménez injury, and added another half-unit share after the injury.
