Baseball Outlook

Jokes aside, these are two teams far out of contention in a race to the bottom, despite what on a surface level looks to be high caliber pitching.

The best thing the White Sox have going for them is their recent Magnificent Coloring Day concert hosting Chance the Rapper and his friends. That looks like a helluva good time. This series, not so much.

Still, now is the time to relish your baseball. There are seven games remaining, and then the winter comes.
