Aren’t They All Big

I am still awaiting word from Detroit. Better check whitesox.com closer to game time.
It is, but at this time of year aren’t they all big? I think we all will be saying that to one another quite a bit over the next six weeks.
Ten days ago, would any of us have forecast the present situation? … Detroit suddenly looking very human (about time). We still look dangerous in the division race (let’s see how the next four games go). Minnesota hanging around annoyingly (We needed Friday night and fell short). New York surging in the East while Boston really struggles.
Tiger By The Tail
Normally, going 2-2 on the road against the team with the best record in baseball would be an accomplishment. Not this series. I think everyone in Chicago (at least our Chicago) is hoping for better.
It will be interesting to see if the first few innings tonight set any tone … can we keep Verlander struggling (same with the Tigers overall) … can our 3-4-5 guys drive our offense … do we all believe Contreras is the right guy to have on the mound for tonight? … I am excited to watch tonight’s game … let’s hope we all share that feeling at 9:30 pm …
The White Sox are 5-1 against the Tigers in Detroit so far, 9-3 overall.
