It seems like the Chicago White sox were winning every game in site not long ago. Now we’re looking at a team that since the all-star break is just 22-22. The Cleveland Indians were 20 games under at the break, but have played much better at 20-25 since. Edwin Jackson has great stuff, but trouble with command, and he had back-to-back good years where he went a combined 27-20. He is otherwise 19-29, and had just a single season pitching to an ERA of under 4. The White Sox are playing .500 baseball because they are 1-8 after a win, and can't get anything going. The Indians have taken four of their last five vs. a right hander, and I like them in this spot. Cleveland gets the call.
