How Bad This Year Has Become: We've been trolled by White Sox fans. WHITE SOX FANS. Sigh.

The Chicago White Sox are in town to take on the Rochester Red Wings "Minnesota Twins" tonight, after taking the first three games of the four-game series. I just hope I write a winning recap tonight. It's really not asking much.

Pitching for Minnesota:


Carl Pavano

#48 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins

6-5

Pavs hasn't been dominant or consistently solid, but he's been good enough for the Twins this year, and has avoided extended time on the DL, which can't really be said for many other players. So uh...good on ya, Carl.

Pitching for Chicago:


John Danks

#50 / Pitcher / Chicago White Sox

6-1

Originally I was thinking "well, hey, the Twins see a lot of Danks, they should know what to expect from him by now, right?" but then I realized over half of this lineup is likely AAA players and I guess we'll just see how this goes.

Lineups after the jump:

Minnesota
Ben Revere, CF
Trevor Plouffe, SS
Joe Mauer, DH
Danny Valencia, 3B
Chris Parmelee, 1B
Luke Hughes, 2B
Joe Benson, LF
Jason Repko, RF
Drew Butera, C

Fun fact: I couldn't figure out who I left out in the Twins lineup for tonight. Took me forever to realize we had no catcher. Sorry, Drew.

Chicago
Juan Pierre, LF
Alexi Ramirez, SS
Paul Konerko, 1B
AJ Pierzynski, C
Alex Rios, CF
Alejandro de Aza, RF
Dayan Viciedo, DH
Omar Vizquel, 2B
Brent Morel, 3B

The Tigers are really rolling right now and certainly have the division sealed up, so my Question of the Night is: Who ya got in the playoffs? Personally, I'm going Brewers or Phillies (my Halladay/Lee love will never die). What say you, TT?
