Richie Allen came aboard in 1972 and we almost won the division. We went 87-67 in 72 in a strike shortened season and played .565 ball which comes out to 92-70 in a 162 game season, so theoreticly we improved by 36 games in two short years and contended for a division title and if Melton had not hurt his back the Sox might have won the division.
Yep- if Carlos May kept his thumb and Melton doesn't hurt his back- the 1972-75 White Sox would have been something.
