Justin Verlander views the Detroit Tigers as a driven team intent on reaching the playoffs after missing out the past two years.

"There's no question in my mind they're ready", manager Brad Ausmus said. "I feel good about the team". I don't think they really had a choice. "I believe we can, too".

CHICAGO - The Guaranteed Rate Foundation is expanding its outreach to include White Sox fans as the team kicks off its first season at Guaranteed Rate Field, formerly U.S. Cellular Field.

So should the White Sox be anxious about Quintana?

Chicago traded ace Chris Sale and outfielder Adam Eaton while acquiring young players.

There's a new manager, with Renteria replacing Robin Ventura.

LHP Jose Quintana will wait one more day to make his first career Opening Day start after Monday's game was postponed because of rain.

But Greg Walden, a Republican from OR and former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, sounded optimistic on Tuesday. Sen. "All last week he was calling them". "If we just sit up here and play tiddlywinks, it'll hurt us", he said.

Jones smacked his first major league home run, a three-run blast into the White Sox bullpen, after Quintana surrendered a single to Justin Upton and hit Mikie Mahtook with a pitch.

Detroit won 12 of 19 games against the White Sox last season but missed the playoffs for the second consecutive year. "If they don't tell you, you don't know", Quintana said. The last pitcher to do that on opening day was Mickey Lolich in 1970. Several Tigers hitters could pose an early challenge for Quintana.

That may once again throw a wrench into things and make Tuesday's Tigers victory in which Detroit connected on three home runs even more meaningful.

Three batters later, Nick Castellanos showed another picture of his potential with his first home run of what looks to be a second breakout season.

The 34-year-old was excellent on Opening Day, registering said home run, a double, an RBI, two walks and a pair of runs scored in three at-bats. Kinsler added a solo shot in the fourth. Several other White Sox players can not boast the same level of success. "We feel we can score some runs".

The White Sox will host Detroit for Game Two of the series on Wednesday.
