|Team Outlook and Scouting Report|
SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D
At 9-14 the White Sox are behind their money line projected win total of 10.4 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ as a slight favorite, or by 5+ as a favorite then they have 7 good wins vs 6 bad losses. They have come up especially short at home. Their 3-6- home record is -13% lower than their expected win percentage. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (8-11, 42%) is under their expected 45% win percentage. In simulations where the White Sox played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 40.7% of the time (#27 in the league). Their peak rank was #24 in the league back on 4/23.
Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average run differential is -0.83 which ranks #13 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #12. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #6 ranked team in run differential in road games, vs #14 in home games. Based on run differential, they are trending up. Their average run differential in their past 12 games is +0.67 (#3 over this stretch).
