White Sox projected to finish .500 in 2016 by Fangraphs

White Sox fans will not want to hear this.

Despite some big moves in the offseason, the stat gurus at Fangraphs project the White Sox to finish 81-81 this season, just five games better than they were a year ago.

With the additions of Todd Frazier and Brett Lawrie to an already underachieving lineup, most fans would expect bigger things, but the numbers tell a different story.

Fangraphs has the White Sox finishing second in the AL Central behind the Indians at 85-77.

Worse yet for Sox fans—the Cubs are projected to have the best record at 95-67.
