No Eloy? No problem! Er ...

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Chicago Cubs Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the big news is right here, and it’s not good:

So, OK, news cobbled together from today’s other threads:

  • Evan Marshall activated off of the injured list, on exactly the date predicted, almost as if he had no injury at all.
  • José Ruiz shuttles back to Schaumburg.
  • The Sword of Damocles still hangs over Gio González’s head, although Carlos Rodón might be sitting in the hot seat as well.
  • Ian Hamilton has been claimed off of waivers by the Seattle Mariners.
  • Apparently there’s talk that Leury García, out of nowhere, may be activated for the postseason?

So, here’s the White Sox lineup for tonight.

And, for the ivy bumblers, coming off of something like three (OK maybe 12) hits this past series at Pittsburgh, here are their “hitters”:

Minnesota’s magic number is three, Chicago’s is (perpetually) four, for the division title.
