Hey, welcome to a new season, friends!
We’ve had so much coverage this week, I may just have to skimp on a heavy gamethread.
Let’s get right to the lineups:
Lucas Giolito will be the first Sox pitcher to make three consecutive Opening Day starts since LHP Mark Buehrle (2008-11), and the first RHP since Jack McDowell (1991-94).— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) April 8, 2022

Mark Buehrle and Jack McDowell? Gio is now White Sox royalty.
So cool to see gambling infiltrate the goddam lineup tweet. This is fine!
Miggy batting fifth, huh? Maybe a little less apprehensive I removed the Tigers as my final playoff team in our staff predictions.
It’s been a long week, and it’s not over for South Side Sox! I’ll have your game recap, Chrystal O’Keefe is on the Six Pack, and Adrian Serrano provides the Bird App recap today. And of course, we’ll record a postgame podcast after last out, and post that ASAP this evening.
Watch on NBCSCH or listen in to ESPN 1000, game time is 12:10 p.m. CT. But it’s Opening Day. That means both that first pitch will probably be late, and that you might as well just snap on the TV or dial up the radio right now to get in on all the pregame fun.
After you finish listening to our pregame podcast, that is.
