The Chicago White Sox are headed to the West Coast for the next three games as they take on the Oakland Athletics.

Oakland is currently in first place in the AL West with a record of 23-15, winning their past four games. The A’s are 5-5 in their last 10 games.

The White Sox have lost four of their last five games but are second place in the AL Central at 19-20 overall. Chicago is coming off two straight losses to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

A lot can happen in this series, because the White Sox are so inconsistent as of late, we never know what White Sox team we are going to watch on a given day.

I’m not expecting a lot from this series, but I’d like to see them play more competitive against the A’s than they did when they played the Diamondbacks this past weekend.

Here are my “5 Bold Predictions.”
