I get that the Cleveland Indians have made their living over the last couple of years by beating up on the rest of the AL Central, but something’s different this year, and the White Sox have been no pushover. As a matter of fact, they’re the team that’s been steamrolling the division, with the White Sox taking 24 of their last 31 games against the division. Aaron Civale goes for the Indians here and I still think he is the weak link of the solid Cleveland pitching rotation. Dane Dunning toes the rubber for Chicago and while he’s had ups and downs in his rookie campaign, he’s been trending upward lately, posting a 2.04 ERA in three outings in the month of September, with the White Sox winning all three of those games. Civale’s posted a 4.80 ERA over his last five starts and I just don’t think that’ll cut it with the way the White Sox are swinging the bats. Give me the White Sox as my premium pick for this game.
