I’m less confident about assessing CHICAGO than I am about any other team in the majors. Here is a team with the terrific burgeoning talent of Gordon Beckham and Carlos Quentin – yet its success will depend much more on virtual castoffs like Andruw Jones, Juan Pierre, Alex Rios, and Mark Teahen. Here, if Jake Peavy rebounds, is a four-man rotation as good as any in the game, but a bullpen where only one guy (Matt Thornton) does not start the season as a question mark (how could you possibly get as many ex-studs in one place as Kenny Williams has in Scott Linebrink, J.J. Putz, and Tony Pena?). The White Sox could easily win the division, but I would hesitate to bet on it.
