After a terribly disappointing series against the Boston Red Sox, the Kansas City Royals welcome in socks of a different color in the Chicago White Sox.

Three Game Series with the Yankees

The boys are on their way back to Chicago from a quick trip to New York for a three game series with the Yankees. I was secretly hoping for at least one win but it was not meant to be.
