Remember in the movie Bull Durham when Crash Davis give the team a rainout by turning on all the sprinklers overnight at the ball park? We’ll even though the White Sox didn’t need to go that far, they still had their rainout on Tuesday at US Cellular Field.

The Chicago Sun-Times wrote about the “slight” altering of the pitching rotation:

"“John Danks, who is scheduled to oppose the Tigers’ Justin Verlander, will pitch Wednesday, and Chris Sale stays on his start Thursday against Max Scherzer … Jose Quintana, Hector Noesi and Andre Rienzo will pitch Friday through Sunday”"

Basically means on Thursday all baseball fans should be watching Sale vs. Scherzer because that will most likely be a game for the fan of very good pitching, and a game where one miscue on the mound will probably allow the opponent to win the game.

The Danks vs. Verlander matchup catches the attention as well, because if we get “good” Danks than we could be in for a treat but if we get “not so good Danks,” that could mean for another long night at “The Cell.”

No makeup date has been released for the postponed game from Tuesday, as it was also the first rainout for the White Sox this season.
