The series this weekend in Cleveland will be the final series before the All-Star break with the White Sox taking on the Indians.
I don’t know whether to be happy or disappointed going into this series with how the White Sox played in Boston.
On one hand the White Sox played very well in the first two games of the four-game set, well enough to gain consecutive wins at Fenway Park. Then in the final two games of the series the White Sox gave away game three after a very stellar performance by Chris Sale, and Thursday the White Sox battled to tie the score in the ninth, only to lose in the 10th.
The series we all watched in Boston perfectly tells the tale of the ’14 White Sox club … inconsistent. Right?
The good news from Thursday though was the White Sox signed first round draft choice Carlos Rodon to a contract and Sale was finally put on the AL All-Star team by winning the AL Final Vote by the fans.
I believe the White Sox can play well this series, because they’ve played well in the past few series, but what I don’t know is when called upon if the White Sox bullpen will be there to slam the door shut.
