The Raymond Report shows White Sox to be clearly ahead here as well.

The only issue I have with this is that just like the Tampa Bay pick last night, I feel that this could be too good to be true for the value.

Nonetheless, let’s hope the White Sox can help put us back on track to the next winning streak.

Tonight’s Prediction: CHICAGO WHITE SOX to win 4-2.
