I don't think that's happening at all. The only advantage I see anyone giving the Astros is that they're at home and it's otherwise a coinflip

Their home and their offense is deaper/better.  But our pitching should be superior. Gotta shut them down!

For some reason this morning I woke up thinking of Juan Uribe.

The betting lines also favor the Astros at -134 on the Win line and the Sox +115 and the run line +1 for the Sox?

That’s pretty standard home field betting lines. The run line also favors the Sox pretty heavily for being a run line.

coinflip odds pretty much with the favor to the home team.  It was +150 just two days ago so the odds changed a lot already in our favor.

For the first time....ever, The White Sox have the rooting interest of AMERICA. Let's show them what the start of this Dynasty can be...and the star power that nationally will become very known to casuals the next 4-5 years. LET'S GO GO WHITE SOX.

The Astros have two things going for them and it's home field and postseason experience. Other than that, It's anyone's game

Good news, my brother's 83 inch OLED has been delivered and set up on time for game 1.

Mendick on the roster is a bit of a surprise

Must mean they aren't very confident in Engel and Vaughn's health, right?

Tickets still available for Sox fans in Texas or at O'Hare or Midway.

 

The ticket availability in Houston isn't as bad looking as the one in Tampa.   They decided to open the upper deck and it's about 10% sold. 

Have your prime time game MLB!

Nice, have a 65 inch OLED. Amazing how much better the picture is in comparison to a regular TV do to the blacks actually being black with no back light.

Wish these games were in 4k though.

I wonder if Hamilton is healthy enough to hit left handed and if so is he in LF today over Garcia?

Have to have every leftie in this game to try and neutralize the slider.

but Garcia is a switch hitter why would he play over him.

I don't see Hamilton getting any starts, he'll be reserved for a late substitution either running and/or defensively.

Eloy Luis and Leury are likely starting in the OF today.
