Chicago White Sox vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

You could make a case for the Chicago White Sox and the plus money because Erick Fedde has been a bright spot this season and does provide a punchers chance. Then you realize the White Sox have lost 8 straight games and aren't stringing together offense. The Milwaukee Brewers are quietly playing some of the better ball over the last month and should look at this series as a chance to pad the standings. Tobias Myers has had his struggles, but I'm banking on the Brewers winning regardless because they're the better team. Give me the Brewers in game 1 against the White Sox.
