The White Sox take on division rival, and the defending World Series Champion Kansas City Royals in a weekend bout in late May at U.S. Cellular Field. This series is not only a weekend series at home, a rivalry series, and a series against the defending world champions, but it is also packed with some added drama. The White Sox and Royals took part in an on-field rumble last season after tempers boiled over in a chippy game, add Brett Lawrie to the mix and you have the potential for some real fireworks when these two teams meet up. Lawrie had his share of bad blood with the Royals after being involved in some on-field extra curricular activities, and then slamming the team, and the fan base publicly through the media. Let’s just say that Lawrie is not liked in the least by the Royals, and their fans, so things could boil over. To top it off the two clubs meet again the following weekend in Kansas City for a rematch series as well.
