The Whits Sox are in Kansas City for their first look at the 2023 Royals tonight. Zach Greinke is on the mound. Let’s just say the lineup looked a little different two decades ago.
39-year-old Zack Greinke starting tonight against the White Sox. This was the lineup he faced in his first career start vs. White Sox on August 5, 2004:— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) May 8, 2023
Fast-forward 19 years, and you get this lineup.
As for the Royals, the only thing you need to know is a Naperville great is missing.
What is this broadcast going to talk about with Nicky Lopez not playing?— White Sox Truther (@SamR33v3s) May 9, 2023
White Sox legend Nancy Faust would like to wish you a Happy World Donkey Day. This is Mandy.
Hopefully Chicago doesn’t make donkeys of themselves, but things haven’t started out so well.

Luis Robert Jr. haters are in shambles right now. Don’t let him get hot or, more realistically, stay healthy.

Hanser Alberto with a sacrifice fly to tie the game in the second inning. Thanks, I hate it.
Alberto has driven in six runs over his last nine plate appearances.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) May 9, 2023
Add two more RBIs to Andrew Vaughn’s stats. His double makes it 3-1.
when r we going to talk about how good andrew vaughn is like actually— hannah (@hannahlamotta) May 9, 2023
I mean, grammar fail, but the message is intact enough.
Meanwhile, Robert strikes out looking on a ball inches outside of the zone.

We’re tied at three after a massive MJ Melendez home run.
Jason is eating in the booth, and Steve is just admiring what they brought him.
Unbelievable to me that people keep bringing Stoney anything but a salad.— Laura (@EllaJay912) May 9, 2023
Vinnie Pasquantino and a double make it 4-3, Royals.
Pasquantino is Byron Buxton levels of Sox killer— Brian Knights (@BrianKnights3) May 9, 2023
Dylan Cease is having another not-great outing.
Whoever stole Dylan Cease and replaced him with this guy, can you please return him— Kaylee (@__kaylee) May 9, 2023
A solo home run to tie the game?
I just think Gavin Sheets is neat.— Chrystal OK (@chrystal_ok) May 9, 2023
Things are not good here in the seventh. Cease loaded the bases, and, well.
It’s 7-3, Royals.
Did I say seven? I meant nine.
It’s a lot to a little.
Amir Garrett may or may not have had an upset stomach. We hope he’s OK.

Will this RBI matter? Probably not, but Hanser hit it, nonetheless.
Hanser Alberto’s reign as the Sox’ RBI king continues with a run-scoring knock in the eighth inning that slightly reduces the Royals’ advantage. It’s 12-5.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) May 9, 2023
Personally, I am sick of this.
White Sox lose, and I just have to say.
