Chris Sale is pitching! Ugh...this could get ugly. Game one of six games in Chicago. Hope the boys like deep dish pizza.

It's upsetting that the Orioles lost a series, especially to a team like the Indians. Yeah, they are ok and Kluber is great. I understand that, but the O's have spoiled me to the point where I feel as though they should win every game. It's unrealistic and irrational but the team is so good that it seems wrong to go into Cleveland and lose.

It is the same tonight. The White Sox are an inferior team with a stud on the mound so it is quite possible that the Birds will lose tonight but at this point that seems like less than the 50/50 chance that it really is.

Go win this one and fix whatever is wrong with us against the AL Central.
