Two games for the price of one is a deal too good to pass up, even given the likelihood that the Orioles will find a way to lose both of them. Chris Sale is starting this first game, so we can pretty much already write that one off - although Sale has not been great so far this year, coming into the game with an ERA over 4. Maybe that's a good sign or maybe it means that he's going to get his turnaround going against the Orioles hitters.
Later on in the day, the White Sox game 2 starter will be making his MLB debut. I'm sure that will be a blast, just as much of a blast as Delmon Young's return to the cleanup spot and the player I choose not to name batting ninth.
By the way, there will not be anyone around to write a recap after this game, so if you've always wanted to write a recap in a FanPost, this is your big chance. Figure out amongst yourselves in the comments who's most dying to write one (because I'd feel bad if like three of you did) and when I get home I'll add the FanPost to the front page.
