1. The White Sox will win just one game in the series

In three of the past four games, the Chicago White Sox have proven to me they still have a lot of work ahead of them, even though they are playing (at times) more inspired baseball than they have in recent memory.

What bothers me about this ball club is the fact they can’t seem to sweep the teams that they should be sweeping. I know they won three of four against the Chicago Cubs, and that was fun to watch, but to lose game four of that series the way they did is bothersome.

Then the Arizona series this past weekend. For as well as they hit the ball on Friday night, they didn’t bother to show up the rest of the weekend, causing manager Robin Ventura to say it stinks.

I want this team to prove me wrong and win this series, but it is tough right now, with two of the best players on the roster sitting on the disabled list, for me to be super cheerful and rah-rah right now.
