Shane’s Free Pick
Gaardis has had issues this season with an ERA of 6.86 and he’s going to really struggle again in this game. The White Sox’s offense hasn’t been exactly elite, but they are going to have no issue running up the score against Gaardis here. The Guardians aren’t going to keep up and the White Sox will get the job done. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
