Maeda has been up and down all season and I’m not sure I trust him on the road. The White Sox offense is due for a bounce back performance and Giolito has been rather consistent all season, allowing two or less earned runs in eight of his last 10 games. The Twins are playing their best ball of the season, but it takes a bit more convincing. The White Sox are better than what they’ve shown lately. These things will even out. Give me the White Sox.
