The “SELL” movement is reaching Chicago tonight as White Sox fans are geared up to stand not only in solidarity with A’s fans boycotting John Fisher’s ownership and attempt to relocate the team to Vegas. They’re also going to be reverse boycotting their own owner Jerry Reinsdorf’s mismanagement of the team and rumors that he’s considering relocating the team as well.

Facing Waldichuk will be Jesse Scholtens, who’s been thrust into a starting role after the White Sox traded away rotation anchors Lance Lynn and Lucas Giolito at the trade deadline.
