Saturday is photo day for the Chicago White Sox, and just like kids in school, the team’s Twitter page is poking fun at some of the photos taking place.
One of the photos on their Twitter page was a picture of starting pitcher Jose Quintana, with the tweet: “Is it just us, or is this the best high school yearbook photo you’ve ever seen?”
I like the fact the White Sox are having a little fun before everything gets really serious next week with the start of spring training games, with game one on Wednesday, March 4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Speaking of the photo day, here are some more tweets from the White Sox:
As for the White Sox spring training schedule, here are the first week of spring training games:

Quintana will be the White Sox starter for the Cactus League opener on Wednesday against the Dodgers.
As for those spring games, one player who isn’t “penciled in” for a start is top prospect Carlos Rodon, with Scott Merkin of WhiteSox.com writing the following about the spring rotation in an article earlier this week:
"“The plan for (pitching coach Don) Cooper is to give every single pitcher the opportunity they desire, especially since Cooper was a pitcher who always wanted more and didn’t get it. But Cooper wants those given a chance to take advantage.”"
