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 the truth about Luis Robert with Keith Law and Jesse Sanchez

With the White Sox expected to sign highly coveted Cuban prospect Luis Robert, there are many questions left unanswered about him: how good or great can he be? How do we even pronounce his last name? There have been various opinions to both.

In the latest White Sox Talk Podcast, Chuck Garfien and Ryan McGuffey interview ESPN senior baseball writer Keith Law and MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez whose reporting on Robert have unveiled two different projections about the 19-year-old outfielder.

A high ranking scouting director told Sanchez that Robert "is the best player on the planet." Scouts who have spoken to Law question Robert's hitting and Law passionately defends his sources on the podcast. 

Later, Chuck and Ryan answer questions from Facebook Live about what prospects Sox fans are most excited to see play in a Sox uniform.
