The Twins have cooled off over these last couple of days and I’m still feeling Ober out with just 21.1 innings under his belt. The White Sox are showing signs of getting back on track and Cease has been solid this season, which includes allowing two or less earned runs in four of his last six starts. I’ll side with the White Sox at home here.
