At 3:10 pm, our selection is on the Chicago White Sox over Oakland. The White Sox will start rookie Dane Dunning, while Oakland will hand the ball to Michael Fiers. Also under consideration for the A's was southpaw Sean Manaea who, in my opinion, is a better pitcher than Fiers. But the A's were concerned about Chicago's 15-0 record this season vs. lefty starters, so they opted for the righty, Fiers, instead. I believe that was a mistake. Fiers' ERA this season is 4.58, but at home, it balloons to 5.81. Dunning's ERA is a nice 3.97, with a solid WHIP of 1.11. And in his lone daytime start this season, he threw five scoreless innings vs. the Royals, in a 5-2 ChiSox win. The bottom line is that, regardless of the starter, the A's are a less potent offensive team. Oakland's hitting just .223 on the season, compared to .260 for Chicago. And its runs per game is 0.6 less (but 1.1 runs per game in daytime affairs). Take the White Sox. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
