Yoán Moncada is out of the lineup for Game 1, with Leury García taking his spot at second base. Reynaldo López is the first of the pitching core to finish his season; let’s hope he goes out on the high note that has been his entire September!

A win today, and for that matter, any one win this weekedn, avoids the fourth 100-loss season in White Sox history. Depending on the results of these final four games, the White Sox will end up as “good” as the 11th-worst team in franchise history, to the sixth-worst.
