Heading into the 2011 MLB season, the White Sox have high hopes for winning the AL Central division, and with good reason. From the first player on the roster to the 25th player, the White Sox possess one of the most balanced and well-rounded rosters in MLB.

The offense is very deadly with Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and Carlos Quentin in the line-up. Brent Morel, Alex Rios and Alexei Ramirez are three players who headline a good defensive unit that should help out the pitching staff.

Speaking of the pitching staff, Mark Buehrle, John Danks and Gavin Floyd are part of a very strong and deep starting rotation. Matt Thornton, Chris Sale and Sergio Santos are three key members of a very solid bullpen who should help the starters close out games when called upon.

These are just some of the players who help the White Sox to be one of the most balanced teams in the league. Here are five individual player predictions and 10 team predictions that I believe will be accomplished by the end of the season.

If most of these predictions were to come true, they would play a big role in helping the White Sox march into the playoffs.
