Visiting Dugout 58 — Cleveland Guardians

The White Sox head to Cleveland to take on the second-best team in baseball, and the clear leaders of the division, the Guardians. Pat Ellington Jr. joined the podcast to talk all things Guardians and the upcoming bloodbath … I mean series. Pat’s baseball knowledge is insurmountable and made this conversation delightful from start to finish.

Here is what we talked about:

  • Remembering Orlando Cepeda and Willie Mays
  • What’s new in Cleveland?
  • The shared history between Cleveland and Chicago
  • José Ramírez and Steven Kwan are seriously good
  • The second-best team in all of baseball right now
  • Confidence in staying on top
  • Wanted: A starting pitcher … like Garrett Crochet?
  • Too many All-Star contenders to count
  • Pitching matchups
  • Keys, fears, and threats
  • Do people still want to see the White Sox at home?
  • MLB thoughts
