Gamethread: White Sox at Tigers

The future:Two reasons to watch a Sox game in September, no matter how meaningless. (Clinton Cole/South Side Hit Pen)

It would be easy to wonder why you, Reader, are watching a meaningless Chicago White Sox game vs. the Detroit Tigers in late September on a Saturday evening. Surely you have something, anything, better to do.

But we know why: soon, there will be no more baseball, only winter and snow and polar vortices, and we will all miss baseball, no matter now meaningless. So we may as well watch while we can.

Is it me, or does 2-6 almost look like a real, honest-to-goodness, professional lineup? Nice work, Ricky:

Meanwhile, the Tigers are trotting out something less encouraging for their fans:

I was born and raised in the middle of nowhere, Illinois, and have been a White Sox fan since birth. The first season I remember was 1977, when Jorge Orta was my favorite player. Was so broken-hearted and pissed off about the 1994 strike that I didn’t go back to a game for four years. Single-handedly brought the Sox to a World Series championship in 2005 by attending Opening Day for the first time ever that season, and buying my scorecard from the same vendor at every subsequent game (what, that’s totally real—if you believe you’re playing well because you wear women’s underwear, then you are).

I just can’t understand why Zach Collins is not in the lineup…

Tigers with two on, nobody out in the ninth. Looks like we might have some drama.

That was a clutch double play!
