Gamethread: White Sox at Royals
All right guys, a bit of a quickie gamethread, I might be missing the game attending to a family matter. Hopefully the lineups etc. aren't outdated in the next couple of hours!
It's Nick Madrigal Day! The rookie is in the lineup, batting ninth tonight. Perhaps more astounding is that the White Sox ate nearly $4 million to dump Kelvin Herrera out of the bullpen after just two appearances. Serious business, this 2020 miniseason!

Oh, and read Colleen's Know Your Enemy. If you don't hate the Royals already, you will.
