The Chicago White Sox are going to get one last tune-up before the regular season begins.
The Chicago White Sox had some fun in their two exhibition games against the Chicago Cubs. They won both games thanks to some big performances from their key players. It was a lot of fun to beat the team on the other side of town. It turned some heads because they showed that they are a really exciting team that is really young and fun to watch. Now, they have one more exhibition tilt and this one is going to be against the Milwaukee Brewers.
The lineups aren’t out yet but this might be a chance for each team to put its best foot forward before the games start counting. The stars might not go all nine innings but they should start in a formidable lineup and play a good amount. Adrian Houser is scheduled to start for the Milwaukee Brewers and Carlos Rodon is set to start for the White Sox. This is going to be a lot of fun to watch.
The White Sox are going to play the Brewers a few times this season as they will fit the entire NL Central into their short 60 game season. Those games are always fun, especially since the two teams don’t get together very often. They both have a much-hated rival on the North Side of Chicago so you have to wonder if there is mutual respect amongst the two organizations.
One player to keep an eye on as you are scouting the Brewers, of course, is Christian Yelich. He is one of the best players in the world and has been ever since his MVP season in 2018. He then followed it up with a second-place MVP finish in 2019. This is a fun player to watch but when the White Sox goes up against him they need to tread lightly.
The Brewers have been one of the elite teams in the National League for a few years now but the success hasn’t earned them a berth in the World Series yet. This year, the expectation is that they are going to take a little bit of a step back from where they were. They have lost some key pieces including new White Sox catcher, Yasmani Grandal. They are, however, still going to be a very respectable team so whoever is playing them need to be ready to go. This is a great test for the White Sox before Friday’s Opening Night game.
