The Chicago White Sox have been off to a slow start in 2022.
After winning six of their first eight games, they proceeded to go on an eight-game losing skid, which has dropped them to 6-10 on the year and into a last-place tie with the Detroit Tigers.
However, there is nobody on the South Siders’ roster that is panicking, especially not veteran lefty starter Dallas Keuchel.
Keuchel believes the team is too good to struggle for much longer and that it is better to struggle now than towards the end of the season.
“Tonight, it started with me,” said Keuchel after the team’s 6-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals, courtesy of James Fegan. “We’ve kind of hit a little dead spot. But we’re too good and I’m not really worried one bit. I like where we’re at and I’d rather do it now than later.”

Still Time To Turn It Around
The White Sox are going to need to turn it around quick, but they are more than capable of pulling that off.
Keuchel has been around the game for a long time and knows what it’s like to hit a rough patch as a team.
He isn’t panicking and the White Sox shouldn’t be panicking either.
This is a good team on paper that is capable of winning a lot of games.
After all, they won 93 games in 2021 and took home the AL Central crown.
There’s plenty of time to fix things on the South Side and Keuchel knows what kind of team the White Sox have.
Every team goes through rough patches and the White Sox are in one now.
We’ll see if they can turn it around and get going.
