The Chicago White Sox are 2-4 this season winning their last two games. As a team the White Sox are hitting .237 with Avisail Garcia hitting .368, Jose Abreu hitting .238, and Melky Cabrera hitting .208. The White Sox pitching staff has an ERA of 5.65 with the starters at 5.50 and the bullpen at 5.94. For game one against the Indians the White Sox start Jose Quintana who allowed nine hits and five runs while striking out four over 5.0 innings to not get a decision in his first start of the year when he faced the Royals.
Cleveland is 7-1 following an off day, 1-4 as a home favorite, 1-5 against the AL Central, and 1-9 in Carrasco’s last 10 home starts against a team with a losing record. Chicago is 6-15 following a win, 3-9 against the AL Central, 4-1 after allowing 2 or less runs in their previous game, and 1-4 in Quintana’s last five starts as a road underdog. Chicago is 5-16 in their last 21 meetings in Cleveland.
We haven’t seen anything inspiring out of either of these two so laying a big price isn’t something I can get excited about and while it is rolling the dice I will take the big odds with the White Sox.
