    We'll send out Kuechel, Gonzalez, and Cease. Their only probable listed is for Game 1 with 22 year old left hander Kris Bubic - making his major league debut. He is the #96 overall MLB prospect according to Baseball Prospectus. Very nice minor league numbers from Bubic. 2.59 ERA 11.4 K/9 2.4 BB/9 0.4 HR/9.

    Granted, he's never pitched above high-A ball and has only 187 professional innings under his belt. Nonetheless, he's regarded as a solid prospect and has performed well.

    I view this as a big series. We all talked about having to take care of business vs DET and KC. Well, here we are. After dropping 2 of 3 to MIN and CLE. In 60 game season, this is as close to a MUST win series as you can have this early on, IMO.

    2nd time through the rotation. Let's hope that guys have shaken the rust off a bit. Giolito sure did.

    What did happen to Lopez? Is he even on the roster now?

    He's been in his sports psychologist's office crying and reliving traumas about his start vs Minnesota. Refusing to come out.

    So if Lopez isn't ready to go, who are they going to trot out there in his place? Can't be Lambert, he's been placed on the 10 day IL. Hope it's not Gonzalez or if it is, they treat the start as an opener.

    4 of our better pitchers are out with covid so we have been having to play a lot of our minor Leaguers. It should be easy pickings for you guys

    Let's hope it's the same situation as Giolito: One totally crap performance followed by a gem.

    Never underestimate the ability of the White Sox to play down to any level.

    I hope so. The guy has been quality his whole career. He probably had the jitters last time out or whatever. It would be awesome if he was a huge piece for this team considering the Sox drafted him so damn long ago.

    Exactly lol. Also, KC is a house of horrors for any Sox team iteration it seems.

    They actually had a winning record against us last year - barely, but they did outplay us. So I take no team for granted.

    It seems like every time the Sox started a guy like this - he got bombed, but our opponents have better luck. seems that way.

    Keuchel in a stadium with that much outfield - should be a huge betting favorite. Robert can run from side to side. I betting Sox in this game. Maybe Robert will do something legendary in KC. It's almost magic Madrigal time.

    Like I said in the OP. It's Gonzalez.

    He's already been listed as the probable since the Lopez injury.
