The Chicago White Sox were supposed to play an afternoon game against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday but it was postponed due to weather. The game was in Cleveland which is obvious because you would think that Roger Bossard has the ability to get the game in at some point if it were at home. The Sod Father works his magic better than any groundskeeper in the world. However, it could turn out to be a blessing that the game was postponed to a later date.

The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians will not play on Wednesday.

The White Sox and Indians split a doubleheader on Monday and then came up one run short on Tuesday. They were looking for a series split with Lance Lynn on the mound but it isn’t going to happen. The game will be played as part of a doubleheader on September 23rd which is the last time the White Sox takes the field in Cleveland during the regular season. It will now be a five-game series.

This could be a blessing because of where the White Sox might be at that point in the season. The hope is that Cleveland’s lackluster offense shows its true colors between now and then and they are way out of the division race.

The White Sox might also be a much more healthy team at that point in time. They absolutely hope to have Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert playing by late September as they prepare for the postseason. A lot has to go right in between now and then but you have to like their chances. It isn’t fun to have the game postponed in real-time but later in the season you may look back and see that it ended up being a good thing.

The White Sox have a huge series coming up with the Detroit Tigers. We say it is a huge series because it is another chance for the White Sox to bank wins against a weaker opponent. They have to take the Tigers seriously otherwise they will have the same fate the New York Yankees did against them but the White Sox should be able to beat them.

Lance Lynn was pushed back to face the Tigers in game one. It should be a good way for the White Sox to get back on track. People like to discredit good teams for beating bad teams but that is literally how baseball works. You have to fight hard against good teams and dominate the lesser teams. Hopefully, following this weather postponement, the White Sox are able to pick it right back up.
