The Chicago White Sox made some aggressive offseason moves to bring in slugger Adam Dunn and retain the services of Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski.
Those moves, along with their strong pitching, has people expecting big things out of the 2011 White Sox.
“I love the White Sox,” Peter Gammons, of the MLB Network, said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “I don’t know if I’m counting on Jake Peavy very much. I’m not, to be honest, as much as I know he’s going to try. Their starting pitching is still very good. I love the power of that bullpen.”

From the power in their bullpen to the power in the lineup, the White Sox are positioned to be a very dangerous team in the AL Central.
“It’s going to be kind of a fun season to watch,” Gammons said. “The White Sox are always fascinating, but they’re also really talented.”
And according to Gammons, one of the biggest strengths of the team could come from an area that partially let them down last season.
“There were times when they struggled last year, but I see the middle of that infield being, in the long run, ending up a huge strength for the White Sox.”
The White Sox open their season in Cleveland.
