Stephen Nover Free Friday Play

On August 4, 2017, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

White Sox plus 1 1/2 runs minus $1.05 at Red Sox

It’s going to take a lot for me to get involved with the White Sox during the rest of the baseball season. Gone from the White Sox are Jose Quintana, Tood Frazier, Melky Cabrera, closer David Robertson and three other key pieces of their bullpen.

What’s left are some promising talent and a lot of rubbish.

If I’m ever going to back the White Sox I need a monster plus price, 1 1/2 runs, a cold pitcher facing them and Carlos Rondon going for Chicago.

All of these things are in place for today’s game.

Rondon is coming around after being out for much of the season. The lefty looked very impressive in his last start this past Sunday against Cleveland. He held the Indians to one run in 6 2/3 innings. He has 20 strikeouts in his last two starts spanning 10 2/3 innings.

Boston has taken over first place in the AL East. It should be noted, though, the Red Sox have a losing record when facing southpaw starters. Boston also would be 5-10 in its last 15 games if laying 1 1/2 runs. The Red Sox are minus injured Dustin Pedroia, too.

Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez hasn’t been the same since coming off the DL after knee trouble. Rodriguez has surrendered 18 earned runs in his last four starts allowing 27 hits, nine walks and seven homers in 20 1/3 innings.
