This is an interesting opening series. The White Sox know they are contenders. They made the playoffs last year and all the moves and maturation they have made a point to an even better team this season. L.A. is hoping that they can stay healthy and gut it out in a competitive AL West. They seem to have as good a shot as Oakland or Houston
Chicago White Sox
Chicago offense looks like it took a hit with Eloy Jimenez now out for a significant chunk of the season, maybe all of it. That is not too much reason for concern though because this team still has plenty of offense. This year for this team it is going to be all about how they handle expectations. They are into the show me phase and past the talent acquisition phase.
Lucas Giolito is the big shiny thing for the White Sox but Dallas Keuchel was awesome for them last season. He went 6-2 with a 1.99 ERA, he just doesn’t dominate with strikeouts the way that other pitchers do. The White Sox bullpen is loaded with power arms and they added Liam Hendricks to that mix in the offseason just to show they were not messing around.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels are desperate to make the playoffs this season. They are good enough to do it but they are also going to need somethings to break right for them. Mike Trout is still the best player in the game and that is a great place to start. Shohei Otani has been the wild card sever since he arrived in L.A. He is looking great this spring.
Andrew Heaney was a top prospect at one point but it never really came together for him. Last year he OK, striking out more than a batter per inning while posting a 4.46 ERA. Nobody made more starts than him for the Angels last season. Raisel Iglesias is the new closer after coming over from Cincinnati. If the starters are going to be average they need the bullpen to be better than that.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
This looks like a great value with the visiting White Sox. I have never been a believer in Heaney and the White Sox definitely have the better bullpen in support. Chicago obviously does not have Trout but beyond that, they might have the deeper lineup. Keuchel at this value is a great spot.
