I'm waiting for the Royals to play their youth and basically pack it in for the year. Them in playing for draft position will hurt us. 

The Royals have basically been playing their youth since their Toronto road trip / the trade deadline, no?

I don’t follow them closely but it does seem that way.  Most of their now regulars are young guys I believe.

It's possible to have youth without sacrificing productivity.

Looking ahead to next week's make-up game with Cleveland, if the rotation holds Giolito would be facing McKenzie. However, the Sox have a day off Monday so they could have Giolito pitch on normal rest Wednesday vs. the Rockies and push Cease back to Thursday to face Cleveland. Now one might argue that with only 24 games left, you want Cease pitching in as many of them as possible and under no circumstances should you be pushing him back.  Another option is to push Giolito back in the rotation and let Lynn pitch vs. Cleveland, as Lynn is scheduled to pitch next Friday but could pitch Thursday on normal rest with the off-day in there.

How would you handle the rotation for this game?

I'd go with Lynn on normal rest.

Don't remember where I saw this, but Twins are now 2-98 in their last 100 games at Yankee Stadium. Can that really be true?

No lol

It does appear that they are 2-24 in their last 26 at Yankee Stadium though (regular season).

EDIT This was before Thursday's Twins win. So 3-24 now over the last 27.

And 73-22 this millennium including playoffs. Absolutely insane. And yankees 64-28 in Minnesota too. Utter dominance.

Remarkably, the Yankees are 61-16 vs. the Twins at Yankee Stadium since 2002 (regular season).

They have also faced the Twins in the playoffs 6 separate times in that span and won all 6 series with an overall record of 16-2 in those 18 playoff games.

Magic Number Standings- The Race to Zero

Guardians- Min 26/ Sox 25

Twins- Cle 29/ Sox 26

White Sox- Cle 28/ Min 26

Guardians number will go down by 3 next time they beat the Sox.

Guardians have to go 4-4 to clinch tiebreaker vs Twins

Sox have to go 4-2 vs Twins to clinch tiebreaker

I’d just be happy if the Sox go 14-7 the next 21, and then whatever it takes vs the Twins the final series. Hopefully the Twins will be eliminated, and the Sox eek it out in the end vs Cleveland.
