CHICAGO (AP) For the rebuilding Chicago White Sox, there is optimism to be found in a season that ended with 95 losses.
They saw signs that a strong foundation is taking hold in a year when Chicago finished fourth in the AL Central with 67 wins. Only three teams had a worse record. And yet?
"I cannot tell you how many various fans have stopped me, or emailed me or mentioned to me that they've never been this excited over a 60-win team," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Or they've never been excited about a team that isn't going to the playoffs."
