Podcast: Getting Ready For Opening Day

Josh and Jim recap the White Sox first exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs which featured an explosive six-run inning from the offense. Even though the results don’t count, these games are still important for individual players. 

Who will be the White Sox fifth starting pitcher?
