We have finally made it to the Chicago White Sox postseason. After a long, hard, rebuild, they are a legit threat to win the World Series. Anything can happen, but Rick Hahn has done a great job helping this team get to where it is right now.
It is the first time that the White Sox are in the postseason in back-to-back years in franchise history. It is honestly amazing and it seems like there are many more great years ahead with this group. Their first task of this 2021 postseason is facing the Houston Astros in game one of the American League Division Series.

White Sox pitcher today
The Chicago White Sox is opening the series with Lance Lynn on the mound. It was always going to be either him or Lucas Giolito but they decided to go with Lynn. He has been their ace all season long and it isn’t changing now. He will face Lance McCullers Jr. of the Astros in this game number one. Lucas Giolito will go tomorrow for game two.
White Sox starting lineup
The Chicago White Sox haven’t even released their roster yet, let alone their starting lineup. We know that Lance Lynn is on the mound which is nice. You can expect “The Big Six” of Tim Anderson, Luis Robert, Jose Abreu, Yasmani Grandal, Eloy Jimenez, and Yoan Moncada to lead things off. It is going to be their best batting order that they can possibly put out.
White Sox vs Astros prediction today
The Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros have met once before in the postseason. It was the 2005 World Series where the White Sox swept them and claimed the big prize. The White Sox need to take at least one of these two games in order to win the series and there is no better game than the first.
Lance Lynn is going to show everyone why he deserved this start. With that, the White Sox are going to solve McCullers Jr. just enough to win a very close game. Expect a huge game from Tim Anderson to help the cause.
