ANALYSIS: Yesterday was a bit ugly. We are getting into those dog days before the All-Star break where we are going to see some odd results as guys are worn down and looking forward to a few days off. Still can't believe the Yankees lost in Pittsburgh -- in fairness to me, I wouldn't have taken NYY at that big of a price on the road had I known Anthony Rizzo was not going to play. He was a late scratch. Still, no excuse for that loss. Ups-and-downs are gonna happen, but I am looking forward to the ASB as well. I don't really love much today, but I also don't want people to think I'm skittish after a bit of a rough Tuesday, so we'll do this one since I'll be watching it. Carlos Correa is out for the Twins (so is Gary Sanchez) and Eloy Jimenez is back for the Pale Hose. The Sox absolutely need Jimenez's power threat as they are 27th in homers. I'm not sure Chicago should be favored but there has to be a sense of urgency here to avoid the sweep. If the Pale Hose lose this, Tony La Russa needs to be fired, but he won't be as Jerry Reinsdorf has a man crush on him.
