Chicago baseball teams get high marks to some degree
With baseball's unofficial halfway point upon us, here is how I would grade some of the key individuals and small groups from Chicago's two teams to date.
Adam Dunn, Jake Peavy and Alex Rios
I predicted a 71-91 season for the White Sox in February, meaning I was even less optimistic than most. Even so, I said that they could be decent if Dunn, Peavy and Rios produced like they're paid to produce. I just didn't think it would happen — a reasonable stance to take, I think, given Peavy's injury history and the seasons Dunn and Rios endured in 2011.
