White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

This'll be an AL Central-heavy roundup, since the Sox had an off day. I looked at a few of Detroit's flaws, which could come back to bite them if things go right for the White Sox.

But Detroit managed to beat Tampa Bay again, winning their three-game series with the Rays and improving to 5-1 on the season. Needless to say, they're on a roll heading into today's home opener.

Max Scherzer is sick, but he'll still make his start today (1:00 p.m., Comcast SportsNet, with coverage beginning from U.S. Cellular Field at noon). Also, Brandon Inge is set to re-join the Tigers in Chicago.

And finally on Detroit, a scary sight: Miguel Cabrera not only fielding a bunt cleanly, but making a good throw. He still should be considered a defensive liability at third until further notice, but maybe it won't be so easy to reach base by laying down a bunt toward him.

Josh Willingham belted his fourth home run of the season as part of a 20-hit outburst by Minnesota's offense in a 10-9 win over the Angels. Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau also homered, which is extremely encouraging for the Twins. And former White Sox great Jeff Gray earned the win, adding unnecessary but funny fuel to the "pitcher records don't matter" fire.

That's it for a light Thursday. Stay with us today for tons of content from U.S. Cellular Field for the White Sox home opener.
