Not content to rest on their laurels after winning the 2005 World Series, the 2006 Chicago White Sox made several moves prior to the season, including trading for designated hitter Jim Thome and pitcher Javier Vazquez, and re-signing Paul Konerko to a lucrative deal. Led largely by the bats of Thome, Konerko, Joe Crede and Jermaine Dye, the team burst out of the gate and battled the Detroit Tigers for the AL Central lead through the All-Star break. However, the Sox struggled in later July and fell behind the Tigers, before eventually being passed by the Minnesota Twins also and falling out of the wild card race.
