The Chicago White Sox made a surprising run at a division title. Now, big changes could be in store.
They might be saying goodbye to Jake Peavy and A.J. Pierzynski, and the front office could be in for some shuffling, too.
That explains that feeling of finality as the White Sox lost their grip on the AL Central lead and ultimately finished three games behind Detroit in the division at 85-77 in Robin Ventura's first season as manager.
Now, they're left to pick up the pieces and figure out their next move. They led by as many as 3 1/2 games and spent 117 days in first place, scenarios that few would have envisioned when the season began.
