The 2008 Chicago White Sox season was the organization's 109th season in Chicago and 108th in the American League. The White Sox won the American League Central division title for the first time since 2005. They finished the regular season tied with the Minnesota Twins (88–74) and won a one-game playoff for the division title. They subsequently lost the 2008 American League Division Series to Tampa Bay Rays.

Individual highlights for the White Sox included the breakout season of offseason acquisition Carlos Quentin and the strong rookie season of infielder Alexei Ramírez. Gavin Floyd nearly threw a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins on May 6, broken up by Joe Mauer's double in the ninth inning. The White Sox set a new home record at U.S. Cellular Field of 54–28 (.658 pct.) breaking the 2003 home record of 51–30 (.629 pct.).

Offseason

Finishing fourth in the American League Central division coupled with having both MLB's lowest batting average and on-base percentage in 2007 prompted the White Sox to make numerous transactions, particularly with West Coast teams, to improve their lineup.

Other players no longer with the team from the 2007 season are Alex Cintrón, Darin Erstad (signed with Houston), Andy González, Mike Myers, Heath Phillips, Scott Podsednik, and Luis Terrero.

Two coaching staff changes were made, with the hiring of Pittsburgh Pirates third base coach Jeff Cox and bullpen coach Juan Nieves. Cox replaces Razor Shines, while Nieves replaces Art Kusnyer.

  • The Sox faced three different teams in three consecutive games, which was just the third time this had happened in MLB history (the White Sox and Cleveland Indians each having done so in September 2000). The Sox won all three games: (1) the regularly scheduled season finale against the Cleveland Indians, (2) a game against the Detroit Tigers that had been rescheduled from earlier in the month due to rain, and (3) the tiebreaker game against the Minnesota Twins. Having won, they then faced a fourth team in their next game to begin the playoffs.
  • September was the team's first month with a losing record in the season. The month was highlighted with the AL Central tie-breaker game, which took place at U.S. Cellular Field on September 30 vs. the Minnesota Twins. It was Game 163 of the regular season. The White Sox organization called on the fans who attended the game to wear all black. There was almost 100% participation in what the White Sox called "the blackout game." The White Sox won the game 1-0.

Record: 1–3

  • The 2008 playoffs saw the White Sox square off with the Tampa Bay Rays in a matchup of the second and third seeds. The White Sox started Javier Vázquez in Game 1. Rays rookie Evan Longoria hit two home runs in a 6-4 win for Tampa. Mark Buehrle started Game 2, which saw the White Sox unable to hold an early lead, eventually losing 6-4. For Games 3 and 4, the series moved to Chicago. The Sox took Game 3 by the score of 5-3, with John Danks getting the victory. The Chicago crowd continued the new "blackout" tradition, but the Rays proved to be too much for the Sox in Game 4, winning 6-2 and taking the series 3 games to 1.
