Happy Saturday! Today for Game 2 of 162, the Chicago White Sox will play the Detroit Tigers and look for redemption after yesterday’s ugliness.
It was a chaotic day and game overall, but now that the Opening Day hype has died down,
hopefully the South Siders can come out and show the fans what they’ve been waiting for.
Earlier today, Lucas Giolito headed to the IL due to an oblique strain. Although it’s not ideal,
Tony La Russa hopes that his ace will only miss two starts.In the meantime, the rest of the starting
rotation needs to step it up big time in the games they are pitching. Who’s better to do so than Dylan Cease, against the Tigers?
You might have caught it on the broadcast yesterday, but Cease has phenomenal numbers against the Tigers.
In his career, he is 11-0 with a 1.82 ERA. He’s also coming off of a solid Cactus League season,
starting two games and ending with a 1.29 ERA, one earned run, and eight strikeouts. Cease’s development has been great to watch,

and now the sky's the limit for him if he can work on getting his walk rate and pitches down.
