MLB Preview, Predictions for the 2022 Season

American League Central

DF: Chicago White Sox

The White Sox were the only team in the AL Central to finish 2021 with a winning record. At 93-69, Chicago breezed to the division crown by 13 games. The division figures to be slightly more competitive in ’22, as the Twins and Tigers both improved in the offseason. However, Chicago remains the clear top dog and should cruise to a second AL Central triumph in a row.

Minnesota went out and signed one of the biggest marquee free agents in Carlos Correa. Cleveland boasts one of the best pitching rotations in all of baseball. The Tigers and Royals are brimming with talent. With that said, the AL Central remains the White Sox division to lose. While Minnesota and Detroit should be commended for their willingness to spend this offseason, Chicago is too talented from top-to-bottom to let this division slip from their grasp.

The most talented team in the American League, there are few holes within this group. Trading Craig Kimbrel to the Dodgers was a curious move. With that said, the bullpen still has a bevy of dudes throwing between 98-100.
