Chris Sale, Jake Peavy, and the best 1st half in recent White Sox history

Chris Sale, Jake Peavy, and the best 1st half in recent White Sox history

White Sox Week That Was - 4/16-4/22: Sweep away the pain
(We’re going to try to make these weekend chunks of information, and WSO in general, more split up and easier to digest.  So expect the weekly recaps to be more team-centered, and rather than splitting off about random storylines, those will now get their own posts) It’s amazing how a distracting bit of weekend entertainment...
