Speaking of cooled off, tonight the weather in Chicago will be pretty frigid once again. While I can't find any pitching statistics sorted by temperature, Buchholz has stated in the past that he struggles to get going in cold weather games. This definitely was evident in his first start against the Brewers. It will be interesting to see if either pitcher chooses to use a foreign substance to get a better grip on the cold baseball tonight. Since this game doesn't start until 8:10 Eastern Time and the Bruins don't play for another two days, you might watch the beginning of the Yankees game on ESPN to see PINEda vs. Wood.
Lefty John Danks will be pitching for the White Sox tonight. After dislocating his ring finger last night, this might be a good night for Mike Napoli to rest. In 27 at bats against Danks he has 13 strikeouts.
