Need offense? Gordo's got your back. (Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE)

Offense, Please


John Danks and Justin Masterson will face each other for the third time in a month. If that seems like a lot it’s because it is. Strange schedule. The hope is that the White Sox offense gets big in this one. Offensively the team hasn’t been entirely absent but the inconsistency and ability to score just less than what’s needed is infuriating for fans.

Tonight’s Lineup:

1. De Aza – CF
2. Gordo – 2B
3. Dunn – DH
4. Paulie – 1B
5. AJ – C
6. Rios – RF
7. Alexei – SS
8. Viciedo – LF
9. Morel – 3B

Gordo has been steadily working his average upward. Coming from low enough that a pair of 1-4s yesterday still kept it moving. That landed him back in the 2 hole and if he stays swinging the way he has been it’s a huge boon to the offensive effort. Of course, if Robin sees fit for him to be bunting…
