White Sox World Series champion Jon Garland on Chris Sale's 8-0 start: It's not surprising

The last time a White Sox pitcher started the season 8-0, the White Sox won the World Series.

Well, here's a good sign for White Sox fans: another pitcher on th South Siders has started a season 8-0.

Chris Sale improved his record to 8-0 in a complete game victory over the New York Yankees on Friday, becoming the first White Sox pitcher to accomplish the feat since Jon Garland won his first eight starts of the season in 2005.

CSN's Chuck Garfien received a text from the former White Sox World Series champion following Friday's game.

Garland's best statistical season came in 2005 when he compiled an 18-10 record and a 3.50 ERA in 32 starts. It also marked his only All-Star appearance.

Sale, on the other hand, appears to be a lock to notch his fifth-straight All-Star appearance as he leads the majors in wins (8) and is third in the AL in ERA (1.70).

Below are some remarkable numbers on Sale's start to the 2016 season via CSN Chicago stats guru Chris Kamka and Garfien:

White Sox Talk Podcast on The Three Amigos: Jimenez, Robert and Adolfo

The White Sox three outfield prospects are creating a lot of buzz at spring training.
