    I'm leaning White Sox for the same reasons I was hoping for the Twins over the A's. The White Sox have never faced Javier, Urquidy, Taylor, and Paredes. Framber has only faced them for 2.2 innings with no runs, 2k, 1BB, 2H.

    McCullers has also pitched really well against the White Sox...

    24.1 IP, 2.22 ERA, 29K, .945 WHIP

    Also called out the broadcast for focusing on the cheating scandal during game 1 haha.

    Correa is also quite simply a playoff beast.
    I’d like to see him live up to the MVP potential but he’s a great SS and hasn’t backed down with the cheating allegations. Much respect to the guy.

    My complaint is that they compared this year to 2017. Compare it to last season when, according to MLB, they weren't cheating. They were noticeably better in 2019 without cheating.

    This year was just a strange, sucky offensive year.

    Must’ve been after they called the home run from “Alex Correa”...I know I’m petty but I can’t help myself.

    I’m usually not petty, but the obvious hate Houston team is getting is making me pretty ****ing petty. Screw all of them
