The Chicago White Sox have been a hit or miss team lately, but Lynn has been money this season, and that includes allowing eight hits and one earned runs in his last 10.1 innings. Morgan has been hittable all year, and he has a ridiculous 8.31 ERA and .313 allowed batting average at home this season. Only option for me here is to take the White Sox and the RL for max betting value.
