The Chicago White Sox are really close to the regular season getting underway. The season is going to get underway on the west coast at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. It is going to start with a series with those Los Angeles Angels. This is going to be a good way to get the season going as this White Sox team tries to meet all expectations that have been placed upon them.
The Chicago White Sox are going into 2021 with a tremendous amount of excitement.
It is going to be a 9:05 start for fans watching from Chicago. The game can be found on television by turning to NBC Sports Chicago Plus. Jason Benetti and Steve Stone will have the call there. Len Kasper will have his first call for the White Sox on ESPN 1000. It is as good of an announcing group as any team has in all of baseball.
The White Sox announced that Lucas Giolito is going to be the starter. It is the second year in a row that he is going to be the Opening Day guy. He is going to face Dylan Bundy who has been named to be the Opening Day starter for them. It is a really intriguing matchup for the two teams as each hopes to have a really good season this year.
The Angels are a team that has failed to meet expectations for a while now. They have one of the greatest players who ever lived in Mike Trout but they haven’t been able to build anything around him. He plays at all all-time great pace every single year but the Angels are rarely ever over .500 let alone in the playoffs. They are hoping to change that this year.
The White Sox will enter this game with extreme expectations. They believe that their roster is going to compete for the division title and potentially the World Series. They have the talent to do so and it all begins with this big day. The festivities begin on the other side of the county so we will have to wait to see them at home but it is still going to be fun to watch either way.
