Reading Room: Sox vs. Indians cancelled today

New, comments

Game today cancelled because of rain. So, instead, we have some fine reading materials to fill your relaxing afternoon.

Jamie Squire

Hooray!  Hooray!  First of March... OK, that rhyme won't work.  After chasing away the white rabbits, you'll have to find something else to fill your afternoon since there won't be any White Sox baseball today.

For those of us who tried to watch the feed yesterday, I hope they use the time today to work out any glitches.  Today was also supposed to give us a view of several of the pitchers battling over the depth spots in the White Sox rotation.

Finally, Josh Phegley was listed as the catcher for today's game when the lineup was first posted.  This morning, he was replaced in the lineup Adrian Nieto.  There's been no information on the lineup switch.  Maybe there's an injury.  Maybe it was because Phegley grounded out in a one pitch at bat yesterday.  Speculate away!
