The hunt for October begins on Tuesday afternoon with the first game of the postseason kicking off between the Chicago White Sox and the Oakland Athletics. Oakland finished with the top spot in the AL West while the White Sox secured the first wild card spot for the AL.
Chicago White Sox
White Sox had a fall from grace after finishing the season losing seven of eight. Those losses caused the Sox to fall from first place in the central to all the way down to the wild card spot.
Chicago has the most likely candidate for MVP on their squad in Jose Abreau. Abreau leads the league in RBI’s and is in the top 10 in most of the offensive categories in the league. As a team, the Sox averaged 5.10 runs per game in the regular season which was good for 5th in the league.
Lucas Giolito will take the bump for Chicago looking to get them the first win of the series. Giolito went 4-3 with a 3.48 ERA in the regular season and even threw a no-hitter.
Athletics come into the postseason as the number two seed overall in the AL and lucked out not having to face their divisional rival Astros in the first round thanks to some White Sox losses.
Oakland’s offense will be headlined by Matt Olson with Matt Chapman sidelined with an injury. Olson led the team in home runs crushing 14 on the season to go with his team-leading 42 RBI’s.
Bob Melvin will send out rookie Jesus Luzardo to make the first start of the series for the A’s. Luzardo was impressive in his first year going 3-2 with a 3.81 ERA in 12 starts this season.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I think the White Sox have the advantage in this matchup with all the injuries the Athletics have suffered. Even though Chicago had struggled over the last two weeks of the season I think they can muster a win here behind one of the best pitchers in baseball. White Sox has scorched left-handed pitching all season and the Athletics are sending out a lefty to start the game. Give me Chicago to win in a close one.
