White Sox fans hoping that Sale can outshine Verlander on Sunday Night Baseball
The “musts” I posted on Friday and reviewed on Saturday were things that I felt the White Sox needed to do to win this weekend’s crucial series against the Tigers in Detroit. That’s all moot now as the Sox have to just find a way, any way, to salvage one game and break their streak... Read more »

It's the best of times for the White Sox as they hit the road to Baltimore and Detroit

Thoughts from here and there as the Sox try to salvage the final game in K.C.: 1. It’s official. The Royals are the new Twins.
