The Cactus League season ended today for the White Sox and it concluded the way it
began–with a thud.
With their 3-2 loss to the Royals the Sox leave the Valley of the Sun with an 11-20-1 record, undistinguished for a team with World Series aspirations. But we all know spring training games are meaningless and perhaps even more meaningless for the Sox, who put absolutely no stock in winning exhibition games. Time will tell, however, if the South Siders’ pathetic record is an indication of what lies ahead in 2011.
The Sox are now on their way to Winston-Salem, N.C. to face the hometown Dash, one of two Class A clubs in the organization, tomorrow night. Then it’s on to Cleveland for the season opener Friday against the Tribe.
