Tampa Bay Rays vs Chicago White Sox prediction

I don't want to back the Chicago White Sox as much as the next guy, as they're the worst team in baseball. However, that didn't stop the Rays from losing the first two games in this series. While the offensive production for the White Sox could slow down, getting Erick Fedde on the mound packs value in the plus money and a potential White Sox sweep. Fedde has been one of the few positives for the White Sox this season and looks great. I'll take a shot with the White Sox as they look to sweep an AL contender at home.
