White Sox Talk Podcast: What happened in 2017 and what happens next?

With the 2017 season in the books, Chuck Garfien, Dan Hayes, Ryan McGuffey and Chris Kamka take a look back at what happened with the White Sox in 2017 and look ahead to moves they might make this offseason and into next season.

Later, Garfien, McGuffey and Kamka look back at the predictions they made back in March and compete for a prize off the Jason Benetti/Steve Stone prize shelf — a broken White Sox gnome.

Also, they discuss what deals the White Sox could make during the offseason. Plus, who will be the White Sox center fielder and third baseman in 2018? When will Michael Kopech be called up? Who will start Opening Day? Why Rick Renteria is the long-term answer as White Sox manager and a whole lot more.
