Like the White Sox, I am also coming into this game wounded.
Who's got two thumbs and is officially too sick to go to the game tomorrow?— White Sox Twitt3r's Heel Turn (@SoxTwitt3r) April 15, 2022

But it’s Jackie Robinson Day, so we all push through.
Some people had some trouble accessing the game on Apple TV+, but most figured it out easily enough. Some even really enjoyed it.

I’ve seen enough. Apple TV broadcast so far is the best national broadcast— Rick Hahn’s Burner (@RickHahnBurner) April 15, 2022
They seem fair and knowledgeable about both teams and seem to know their shit. They put some effort in here
Obviously, not everyone:
Apple TV really differentiating themselves with the deep dish pizza cliche.— Ken Sawilchik (@ksawilchik) April 15, 2022
Fans at the ballpark were having struggles of their own!
Good to see our old pal Carlos Rodón still knows how to strike out batters in Cleveland.

Tony La Russa is joining the rest of us in The Church of Tim Anderson.

Gavin Sheets puts things into his own hands after a laser double to right, before some great base-running.

Some early evaluations from Easter weekend family time:
So far Pops takes:— Eric Wilson (@suitedfours) April 15, 2022
1. “That Garcia can play everywhere, but he isn’t no hitter”
2. “Cease has really improved, but why that mustache?”
To be continued…
Cease looking great, indeed, with four Ks through two innings.

Pops is back, and he enjoyed that Burger home run as well.

Sox crush four baseballs, but only walk away with one run.

A very fair question is posed:
There is no way TLR knows what Apple TV is, is there?— E (@ivotedforbeer) April 16, 2022
I miss Steve and Jason too, Pops.

Checking back in at the ballpark, and a hotly contested win for Cheesy Beef is keeping the crowd warm.
Even the fans of the other dugout are adjusting to the Apple broadcast.
Kind of weird watching @RaysBaseball on Apple TV ⚾ I like hearing women announcing— Yandy Diaz Fanatic (@JENNWREN6197) April 16, 2022
Dylan Cease continues to look exquisite.

Leury does remember how to hit, and no one gave up on him. At all.
I’ve been a Leury Garcia guy for as long as I can remember.— Matt Crawford (@Mattheius2783) April 16, 2022
Cease’s start was anything but a bummer, but Aaron is on for relief.

The mustache was good too, I guess.

Bummer stays out and finds a way to not make it worse, this time.

Kendall Graveman bringing all the heat to some of the SSS crew.
Kendall Graveman has faced 18 batters this season and allowed two hits, three total bases. No runs. No walks.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) April 16, 2022
Now we hope that we get Liam Hendriks in the ninth rather than the Liam “Colomé” we have seen so far.

Regardless of the outcome, Liam knows how to make an entrance.
Sox are back at it tomorrow, to try and win another series!
For now, it’s Ny-Quil City for me.
Oh yeah, Carlos Rodón is still good
