Don’t look now but a pair of playoff contending teams that could matchup in the World Series this year are actually teaming up. The Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to help each other increase their representation in the 2021 All-Star Game.
The two ball clubs already share a spring training facility, but now they will hope to share much more than that. Chicago took to Twitter to announce the alliance between the two clubs as they hope to send their players to Colorado.

The White Sox have first baseman and 2020 AL MVP Jose Abreu, third baseman Yoan Moncada, and former Dodger catcher Yasmani Grandal among the finalists for the American League. Meanwhile, the Dodgers have Max Muncy, Just Turner, Gavin Lux, Mookie Betts, and Chris Taylor among the finalists for the National League team.
While the Dodgers and White Sox could very well become enemies in the World Series this year, for now they’ll work as friends. Each player could surely use the help as they are all have some stiff competition at their respective positions.
Don’t forget to vote for your Boys in Blue as well as the Boys in Black and send them to the All-Star Game on July 12.
