In a weekend series which saw the Chicago White Sox take a series win from the Texas Rangers, Jose Abreu is the talk of the Southside. In Saturday's contest against the Texas Rangers, Abreu recorded his 1000th career hit.

It's truly a great milestone to accomplish and it solidifies just how good Jose has been in his White Sox tenure. Jose has been a model of consistency since he came to the South Side in 2014.

Jose didn't stop there either. In Sunday's 2-0 win over Texas, he recorded his 100th RBI of the season. This is the fifth time in Jose Abreu's 6 year career that he accomplished this feat. Jose now trails only Paul Konerko who has six 100RBI seasons and Frank Thomas who has 10 in White Sox history.

It's been an unforgettable career and season for the White Sox first baseman. Jose is truly solidifying himself as a White Sox great and a true leader moving forward. Whatever happens this offseason with Jose, he has truly made his mark here with the White Sox. Hopefully, Jose and the White Sox can reach a deal so the fruits of Jose's labor can continue to grow and flourish as the White Sox try to become a legitimate World Series contender in the not so distant future.
