Chicago White Sox’s Struggling Beginning Mirrors Recent World Series Champions

Breaking the Curse: Chicago White Sox Align with 2021 World Series Winners in Early Season Statistics

The Chicago White Sox faced a slow start to the 2024 season, losing their first four games. However, things took a turn for the better on Tuesday night when they defeated the Atlanta Braves, snapping their losing streak. Despite this early setback, the White Sox were able to align themselves with the 2021 Braves in terms of their season statistics through five games. They recorded 28 hits, 11 walks, six home runs, and a .329 slugging percentage at the plate, while their pitchers allowed 11 walks, mirroring the Braves’ stats from the previous year when they went on to win the World Series.

This alignment with a successful team like the Braves is encouraging for Chicago fans, especially considering their dominance in the NL East. However, it’s important to remember that Tuesday’s win was just one game and there are still 157 regular season games left to play. The White Sox currently sit at 1-4 and are in last place in the AL Central with minimal postseason prospects according to FanGraphs. Despite these odds, history shows that a slow start like this can still lead to a successful season, as seen with the 2021 Braves.

While some fans may be hoping for a championship this year, most would be happy with a winning record.
