2. The White Sox bullpen will match the pen of the Rockies
This is maybe the boldest prediction of all, because let’s face it, the bullpen work of the White Sox the first two series of the season left fans wanting more.
Plus, the Rockies’ bullpen was stellar in their first homestand of the year. In 6.2 innings at Coors Field this weekend (Friday and Saturday) against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Rockies’ bullpen allowed just one run.
The White Sox bullpen has two blown saves this season, but at times, they have pitched well. The problem is certain spots of the bullpen have failed to live up to expectations.
The reason I’m saying the White Sox will match the Rockies is one, I am trying to be more optimistic, and secondly, with two series under their belt, maybe they’ve got all their “butterflies” out of their system.
