Pocket Aces.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Oh boy, here we go. It's Felix Hernandez against Chris Sale in a battle of the aces. This is what it's like when world's collide.

Total we shall get to experience the joy of Ace against Ace, Man against Beast, Peanut Butter against Jelly. Also, we get to see Adam Lind miss 30 of Chris Sale's sliders, which is cool. Also, Kyle Seager continues to be out for the count, but perhaps that's just because Sale is on the mound and he'll be fine and dandy tomorrow. PERHAPS NOT. Death does come for us all at some point.

Felix has potentially warded Death off as of late, as he looked sharp against the lowly Brewers last time out. The White Sox aren't a top notch club, but they'll give him more of a challenge in whatever the hell we're calling the ballpark now.
