The Chicago White Sox game against the Cleveland Guardians on Wednesday was postponed. The Guardians have some cases of COVID-19 that caused the cancelation as they conduct contract tracing across the team.
Now, the game is going to be made up at a later date that should be announced sometime soon. The White Sox and Guardians each went 1-1 in the series up to that point so we will have to wait a while to see who becomes the winner of that rubber match.
On Thursday, the New York Yankees will be in town as they get ready to take on the White Sox in a four-game series. New York, as of right now, is one of the best teams in the American League with their record sitting at 22-8. It is going to be a great test for the White Sox.
The White Sox will use Dylan Cease, Vince Velasquez, Dallas Keuchel, and Michael Kopech in that order in the four games against the Yankees. Obviously, Cease and Kopech instill extreme confidence while you never know what you’re going to get from the other two.
The Chicago White Sox needs to beat the New York Yankees this weekend.
We can only hope that these guys all pitch at their best against one of the better batting orders that they will face all season long. Guys like Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo, and Gleybar Torres amongst many others make it very tough on opposing pitchers. The White Sox will have their hands full.
Chicago went through a very rough patch a few years ago where they did a lot of losing. However, since then they have started t get much healthier and started to win more. They have now won seven of their last eight games.
That is what we wanted with these Yankees coming to town equally as hot (they are 8-2 in their last ten games). Both of these teams believe that they could be contenders in the American League. It will all come down to who remains the healthiest and who stays the course.
Each team should see this as a measuring stick. There is going to be great baseball weather in Chicago so the ball might be flying out of the stadium. The White Sox have the hitters to get it done if they work counts and see the ball well.
We all know how the White Sox went 1-5 last year against the Yankees. That one win was the Field of Dreams Game. They need to turn their fortunes against them around soon and there is no better time than now. As mentioned before, it is a tough task but one that the White Sox are capable of.
