White Sox vs. Astros Game Analysis - March 31st, 2023

WHITE SOX VS. ASTROS GAME ANALYSIS - MARCH 31st, 2023 - I love the Astros tonight at home after losing their opener 3-2 yesterday to the South Siders. 

This pick falls into one of my top MLB analysis systems: I call it the bounce back spot.

Teams like Houston rarely get swept at home. Christian Javier, tonight's Space Men starter, has owned the White Sox, dicing them last season at .118 with just two hits. Javier is a beast and started strong last season: 1.35 ERA over his first five outings in 2022.

White Sox Trends

Chicago got carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey last night by southpaw, Framber Valdez. Now they go up against a lights-out righty. Javier goes six and then the nasty boys in the bullpen take over. 

Chicago's starter Lance Lynn lives and dies with his fastball. Guess who is the best hitting heater team in the MLB? You got it: Houston. 

Chicago had 11 hits last night and stranded 11 base-runners. They won by just one run.

Meanwhile, Houston had just four hits and almost pulled it out. Astros bats come alive tonight in Lynn's cheese-fest. Plus Lynn has brutal April numbers. I mean, really brutal: like over 6.50 ERA. Some pitchers need a few starts. He's one of them.
