White Sox Saturday lineup

Off perhaps the most thrilling win of the season last night, a walk-off home run from Jordan Danks, the Chicago White Sox will go for their second consecutive win against the Oakland Athletics.
Francisco Liriano, who has pitched well in his first two starts since being acquired from Minnesota, is still in search of his first win with the White Sox.
Liriano is 1-1 with a 1.92 ERA in two starts against the Athletics this season.
The only change in the lineup for the South Siders is Tyler Flowers behind the plate, as A.J. Pierzynski moves to the DH spot. Adam Dunn moves to first base, filling in for Paul Konerko, who was moved to the 7-day disabled list yesterday with a concussion.
The Athletics, who sit a half-game back in the Wildcard standings, counter with Travis Blackley (4-3, 3.30).

White Sox Talk Podcast: 'Searching for a safe space in Cubslandia'

With the Cubs back in the NLCS, White Sox fans have had to deal with another post-season of Cubs this and Cubs that. How does one escape it? Diehard White Sox fan John Kass of the Chicago Tribune comes on the podcast to talk with Chuck Garfien about his recent column entitled "Searching for a safe space in Cubslandia." Kass talks about how he's dealing with the Cubs success and how White Sox fans can find this safe space. He tells the story about taking the White Sox World Series trophy into a Chicago Tribune board meeting in 2005 to rub it in the faces of the Trib's executives who were all Cubs fans.  

Kass talks about how he watches the Cubs in the playoffs, the Chicago media coverage of their playoff run and how Cubs fans will react if they don't repeat as champions. Garfien and Kass also discuss the White Sox rebuild, the Cubs losing in 2003 and why Kass will be calling Cubs Pre and Post host David Kaplan in the middle of the night if and when the Cubs are eliminated.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
