I guess it’s Sunday and the White Sox are playing? Who knows? Who cares? Everyone is watching football anyway, so get ready for some unhinged tweets. Sox are trying to avoid getting swept by Detroit, but once again, it doesn’t matter.
In news that’ll actually matter for next year:
No Abreu, no Eloy, Tigers are probably going to sweep.
Love the players, hate the everything else.
I guess I still like these guys. pic.twitter.com/qSeHF0W2um— On Thin Ice Pal (@TheTyronePalmer) September 25, 2022
The ball guy trying to grab a fair ball is a microcosm of everything wrong with this season, but it doesn’t matter, Cease got out of the inning.

AJ Pollock robs a home run to start the second!

Andrew Vaughn and Adam Engel hit balls really long, but just a little short, in the third.
The White Sox entered Sunday with the highest on-base percentage in MLB against left-handed pitching. But Tigers lefty Tyler Alexander has held them to just a Yasmani Grandal walk in three innings.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) September 25, 2022
Andrew Vaughn and Adam Engel both flew out out to the wall.
This game barely matters, but at least Cease is dealing.

We had a saga of a kid with a rainbow cone on the broadcast, and it was more riveting than the last four days of baseball has been.
Crisis averted. His parents wiped it off and got it right back on the cone— Al (@baseballgalal) September 25, 2022

The post-game crew is at the park, and at least Ozzie is happy.

The first pitch of the fourth is taken yard by Yoán Moncada, and it’s 1-0 Sox.
Finally some action!! Moncada with his first hit of the series. Sox get the lead— Al (@baseballgalal) September 25, 2022
Andrew Vaughn takes a ball to almost the exact same spot, and Riley Greene makes a DeWayne Wise-esque catch to rob him of a homer.
Just a ridiculous home-run robbery of Andrew Vaughn by Riley Greene. A sensational play that temporarily lost Greene his hat!— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) September 25, 2022
no one cares, but riley greene just made an insane play— being bitter (@Sean_W_Anderson) September 25, 2022
Cease walks the bases loaded with two outs in the fifth...
Cease is trying my patience.— White Sox Twitt3r VII: Remake (@SoxTwitt3r) September 25, 2022
But Báez pops it up and gets Dylan out of the inning.
Dylan Cease is through five scoreless innings, striking out Victor Reyes and getting Javy Báez to pop out behind home plate to strand the bases loaded.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) September 25, 2022
An update on rainbow cone kid:

Cease once again loads the bases in the sixth, this time with no outs, but a nice double play from Moncada and a fly out to Engel ends the inning with no runs scored.
In what could be Cease's last inning today (94 pitches), he pitches out of a bases loaded, nobody out situation with little issue.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 25, 2022
Reynaldo López takes over for Cease in the seventh. A leadoff hit from Ryan Kreidler and a hit-and-run from Victor Reyes scores a run, but does catch Reyes on the basepaths. It’s tied, 1-1. Cease will not get the win.
Tigers go single, double off Reynaldo López to start the seventh inning. A running start helped the runner on first score standing on the second hit, even though the doubler ran into an out on the base paths.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) September 25, 2022
Game's tied at 1.
Dylan Cease deserved better. Again.— Steve Kniss (@stevekniss) September 25, 2022
Melissa asking all the right questions. The answer is no.
No one is enjoying the ride anymore, and those who haven’t for a while were right and should say it.
Ahaha Stoney joking around about blocking people on twitter (for telling him he was wrong because he absolutely was) hahaha so funny— stoop kiid (@stoopkiid93) September 25, 2022
White Sox baseball, everybody.
The Tigers have the leadoff man aboard for the fourth inning in a row. The White Sox have four hits in seven innings.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) September 25, 2022
Things happen to Kendall Graveman, and it’s 2-1, Tigers.
Tigers back in front. They've singled three times against Kendall Graveman in the eighth inning, and Romy Gonzalez's wide throw on a double-play try did not help.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) September 25, 2022
Sox down 2-1.
More things happen, and the very funny outcome of a Tigers sweep seems to be coming to fruition: 4-1 Tigers
Crowd booing as Tigers have scored 3 in the 8th. 4-1 Detroit.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 25, 2022
When is the last time the #WhiteSox got swept in a homestand of 6 games or more?— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) September 25, 2022
Poop? That’s what the Sox are.

Remember when the division was close? I don’t.
Cleveland is on the verge of clinching the AL Central in Texas with a win and a #WhiteSox sweep.— Ryan McGuffey (@RyanMcGuffey) September 25, 2022
Remember this week’s BIG series? That’s how fast it went.
Season might as well be over, pack it in.
Seconds after Steven Kwan hits a grand slam in Texas, an Adam Engel leadoff single is wiped away by a botched hit-and-run. The yin and yang of the AL Central.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) September 25, 2022
IS ANYBODY ENJOYING THE RIDE??? Please say no. You shouldn’t be enjoying this.
Is the ride finally over? I think it’s over. pic.twitter.com/26kPfukEIC— Tommy Barbee (@KindaBleu) September 25, 2022
Gotta overcome a three-run lead to win; let’s just not do that, and go home.

Maybe the real White Sox are the friends we made along the way
