Week 22 Pitchers Poll: A Full 25-Man Roster

Jose gets photo treatment for last night
There are a lot of things about the White Sox being in first place that baffle me. The newest is the fact that after this week, and including Dewayne Wise's White Sox pitching debut, the Sox have now used 25 different pitchers this season.

That's an entire opening day roster full of pitchers. Had you told me before the season that the Sox would need 25 pitchers to get through the year and that Alex Rios would be our offensive MVP I would have stocked up on Maker's Mark like never before.

Instead we're in first place. Go figure.

After backing his way into first place last week Chris Sale holds on to the top spot with a strong performance. Overall the week wasn't all that great for the pitching staff, but a lot of it has to do with the 18-9 game.

Speaking of that game, congratulations to Phil Humber for having the worst week in the history of the Pitchers Poll with a -10 point week! Good lord! You have to be on top of your game to be that horrible.
