Last year, injuries and a lack of experience left the White Sox with a somewhat inconsistent, yet mostly effective starting pitching staff. Led by the breakout season of Chris Sale and the reemergence of veteran Jake Peavy, the unit did a solid job as a whole against the tough American League. Here are our predictions for how each of the team's starters will fare in 2013 (plus collaborative mock headlines) ... Chris Sale  Zach: 15-9; 3.09 ERA; 201 K's; 1.09 WHIP Luke: 13-8; 3.50 ERA; 180 K's; 1.15 WHIP Matt: 18-8; 3.32 ERA; 200 K's; 1.14 WHIP Reva: 20-6; 2.25 ERA; 215 K's; 1.10 WHIP GSB!: 17-8; 3.04 ERA; 199 K's; 1.12 WHIP Mock Headline: "Chris Sale overcomes mechanical questions and continues providing hope for White Sox fans that he'll be a team leader for years to come. Like in 2012, this season will see its fair share of highlight-worthy starts against some of the American League's best from Sale" Jake Peavy  Zach: 16-12; 3.77 ERA; 189 K's, 1.21 WHIP Luke: 13-10; 3.81 ERA; 189 K's; 1.19 WHIP Matt: 14-10; 3.50 ERA; 200 K's; 1.13 WHIP Reva: 14-9; 3.75 ERA; 194 K's; 1.25 WHIP GSB!: 14-10; 3.71 ERA; 193 K's; 1.20 WHIP ​Mock Headline: "Peavy will continue to be the work horse that he was in 2012, and the offense will finally give him the run support he deserves" John Danks  Zach: 8-10; 4.22 ERA; 137 K's; 1.31 WHIP Luke: 10-5; 3.70 ERA; 120 K's; 1.25 WHIP Matt: 13-11; 3.85 ERA; 160 K's; 1.30 WHIP Reva: 9-10; 4.10 ERA; 97 K's; 1.38 WHIP GSB!: 10-9; 3.97 ERA; 129 K's; 1.31 WHIP ​Mock Headline: "Coming back from surgery and rehab, Danks will get off to a slow start but eventually regain the consistent Buehrle-like form Sox fans have grown to love him for" Gavin Floyd  Zach: 12-11; 4.11 ERA; 180 K's; 1.32 WHIP Luke: 11-12; 4.30 ERA; 150 K's; 1.35 WHIP Matt: 13-13; 4.30 ERA; 155 K's; 1.34 WHIP Reva: 14-13; 4.45 ERA; 175 K's; 1.33 WHIP GSB!: 13-12; 4.29 ERA; 165 K's; 1.34 WHIP ​Mock Headline: "This season will be more of the same for Floyd: Plenty of ups, plenty of downs - but all in all, he'll be a solid middle-of-the-rotation guy who can dominate on any given night" Jose Quintana  Zach: 10-10; 4.39 ERA; 101 K's; 1.39 WHIP Luke: 8-10; 4.50 ERA; 90 K's; 1.50 WHIP Matt: 8-10; 4.13 ERA; 125 K's; 1.38 WHIP Reva: 12-8; 3.38 ERA; 124 K's; 1.57 WHIP GSB!: 10-10; 4.10 ERA; 110 K's; 1.46 WHIP ​Mock Headline: "Although there will be sophomore slumps for "Q," Jose will be continue to learn and grow as a big league starter, inspiring more hope for his future" Hector Santiago  Zach: 8-5; 3.45 ERA; 83 K's; 1.29 WHIP Luke: 7-2; 2.95 ERA; 92 K's, 1.25 WHIP GSB! Prediction: 8-4; 3.20 ERA; 88 K's; 1.27 WHIP ​Mock Headline: "Hector will do very well with every opportunity he's given, whether it be spot starts or bullpen work. "Screwgie" will have his spot in the White Sox' future plans secured by season's end"
