We’ve made it to the end. The White Sox have a chance to sweep the Twins and finish better than .500 despite having a horrendous season.

There is one glaring omission in the lineup today, on what could be his last game in a White Sox uniform.
Sox relay message from José Abreu regarding his absence from today’s lineup:— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) October 5, 2022
“I asked Miguel Cairo to not play today because I want to enjoy this game with him and have the manager’s perspective of the game.”
Before we start, let’s take a deep breath and listen to this sage advice from Jackie.
Game 162 today. Sporting a Sox hat at work and thinking about the roller coaster of emotions we experienced this season. Here’s to hoping we still have Abreu next season and a great manager but for now let’s take this off season for some self care. ⚾️— jackie (@biebergotswaggy) October 5, 2022
Time for No. 162.

I HATE THE FIRST INNING— SoxNerd (@SoxNerd) October 5, 2022
What a way to go out; 6-0.

oh Davis Martin— italian morticia addams (@marjraguso) October 5, 2022
Has Twitter fully given up? I think so.
The White Sox ending the season at 81-81 would be all to fitting for how their year has gone.— Shawn Foss (@Shawn_Foss) October 5, 2022
Kind of rude of my spouse to say this, even if he checked out in April.
I hope the Twins put up 6 every inning.— Billy O'Keefe (@BillyOK) October 5, 2022
It’s 7-0 in the top of the second.
I’d like to see Gavin Sheets pitch today.— Where is Jon Jay? (@JonWhere) October 5, 2022
I was actually optimistic about 35 minutes ago. It’s 9-0, still top of the second.
Martin is done at 1 2/3 innings. Velasquez coming into the game.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) October 5, 2022

Aren’t we all?

We're losing 10-0, but hey at least we're not going to be below .500— Gus Bus (@GusSolano44) October 5, 2022
Anyway, here is a quick update on Davis Martin.
Davis Martin left the game with right biceps soreness.— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) October 5, 2022
What a way to honor MVPito. Thanks, White Sox.
BREAKING: In a tribute to Jose Abreu, the White Sox will give up 79 runs to the Twins.— Brian (@Go_GoSox) October 5, 2022
Has this been the most exciting part of the game in five innings? Yes.

At this point, what could go wrong? Nothing matters and the Sox are on track to be shut out by the Twins.
Let Abreu pitch the 9th @whitesox.— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) October 5, 2022
He is absolutely due for one. What a travesty.
Even the broadcast is saying Jose Abreu needs a curtain call— Matt Carlson (@mattcarlson53) October 5, 2022
Shutout? We don’t know her!
And the crowd still erupts despite being down 10-1 in the bottom of the 9th. It’s the passion for me.— Alyssa Bergamini (@AlyssaBergamini) October 5, 2022
And that’s ball game. Goodbye 2022 season, you were terrible.
Yoan Moncada pops out to end the 2022 season.#WhiteSox finish the season 81-81, which seems fitting for this team. They hovered at or around .500 for the entire season.— Ryan McGuffey (@RyanMcGuffey) October 5, 2022
HUGE offseason ahead.
