Phil Hughes has confirmed that he will pitch on Saturday and matchup against Gil Meche of the Royals.

Moose hasn't been great in his career against the ChiSox (15-16, 4.63 in 36 starts).  Jose Contreras is having an Igawa-like season, but has pitched into some bad luck against the Yanks (2-3, 2.50 in 5 starts).

The featured graphic for tonight's game is one of the ugliest road jerseys during the 1980s -- worn by the Chicago White Sox from 1982 to 1986.  Here's a good look at the real thing.

Lucky for out-of-towners like myself, we get to listen to Hawk Harrelson call the next three games!  

The PA odds makers have returned and set the over/under at 3.5 for the number of umpiring complaints made by the lovable pale hose broadcaster.
