The White Sox ultimate goal is to win the World Series, something they haven't done since 2005, 10 years ago.

What about another achievement, though, not seen since 2005?

Could a revamped White Sox roster and the success it could bring mean attendance numbers similar to those from that World Series-winning campaign a decade ago?

"That would be a big jump," said Danny Ecker of Crain's Chicago Business. "You look at 2005, they were at 2.3 million. They did 1.6 million last year. That kind of jump — even after winning the World Series in '05, they didn't even jump that much in 2006. They're going to do better, no question. I'm guessing they'd end up somewhere in the 1.9, maybe even close to two million (range) this year if they make a decent run and put together a decent team on the field. All indications are, so far, there's a lot more, higher expectations for this season."
