Now, manager Ricky Renteria is quoted on the back page of the Sun-Times today as saying that “there’s no purpose in a perpetual rebuild.” That’s a sentiment I can get behind, except when ... I see a lineup like this:
... where Ryan Goins is hitting fifth. I know, it’s spring training. But c’mon, walk the walk. Micker Adolfo batting sixth? Two guys who homered yesterday, Danny Mendick and Adam Engel, at the bottom of the order? Is this like an Ozzie-playing-Dunn-and-Rios thing, a message intended for the front office?
No, it’s not, I know. It’s spring training. But don’t manage like you’re in a perpetual rebuild, either, Ricky.
Reynaldo López takes the bump today, with these other guys hurling today as well. Hopefully, none of them will make you actually hurl as you watch on whitesox.com.
#WhiteSox scheduled pitchers today vs. Angels in Glendale: Reynaldo Lopez, Nate Jones, Alex Colome, Evan Marshall, Randall Delgado, Jose Ruiz, Zach Thompson. Ian Hamilton has sim/live BP.— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) March 4, 2019
Also, in “brighter days” news, apparently Dylan Cease gets his first spring start tomorrow, in one of the two split-squad games.
Recap perhaps a bit late tonight. We’ll see how the celebrations go. Beautiful day down here, guys, so I’m not tempted to rush home and catch any dark-cloud Sox action to spoil things.
