Final Sox Drawer Battle

Addison Reed  Morning Kids

It’s the final battle in the war to see which Sox reign supreme. Hector Santiago got the call for today’s game with Chris Sale experiencing some tendonitis in his shoulder. They are hoping that a few extra days rest will help and as of now he is scheduled to pitch in the crosstown rivalry. I did see on twitter that as of now, John Danks COULD return as soon as FRIDAY night against the Florida Marlins, either Dylan Axelrod or Hector Santiago will be moved to the bullpen to make room for him on the rooster.

OK, Grab a coffee and see you at the top of the first

Well Kids, that loss ends the Sox Drawer War, by a score of 6 – 2 but the White Sox won the series by 2 games to 1. It’s a day off tomorrow before the Florida Marlins come to The Cell. Then, it’s the series that every White Sox die-hard fan waits for, the crosstown rivalry with the Chicago Cubs.

Get some rest and see you on Friday in the USA and Saturday here in Australia for the first game with the Marlins.
