KANSAS CITY -- Going 4-11 in their last 15 games, the White Sox have lost much of the ground built up by a 23-10 start to the season. That's tightened the race in the American League Central, where the top four teams sat within three games of each other entering Thursday. For that, the players would have reason to feel added pressure.
Instead, ahead of Thursday's postponed series opener against the Royals, the mood in the clubhouse wasn't tense. In fact, it was the opposite.
