Find which way the winds of profit will blow in from with this battle of Chicago starting at 7PM EST on the 26th of July.
Cubs-White Sox : Slam the Door
Most of the hype around Tuesday’s game is the arrival of Aroldis Chapman. A stud of a closer that was traded by the Yankees for two reasons.
- They have other quality closers.
- Domestic abuse charge
New York has decided that his prolific talent was not worth having to baby sit him through all of his personal life. Domestic abuse is the hot button top in professional athletics. It is a hard charge to overcome and with him already having a history of it, the potential for drama and disruption is higher from him than most. That being said, if he can refrain from this aspect of his personal life then the Cubs have that final piece of the puzzle that could make the post season a cake walk for them.
Both Starters are on a Roll
Jamie Shields of the Sox has been bit by lack of run support as of late. Last three games sees him with a WHIP of 0.92 and an ERA just a iota above two runs. All of this and he is 0-3 for the effort. Now he gets to face an even hotter pitcher in Hendricks. He is 3-0 recently with him dispatching the Rangers and Mets in shutout fashion. Normally this pitchers does not go over six innings even when events are going well so we will probably see the bullpen take over with Champman making an appearance tonight.
Totals for runs in this one is hovering near the nine level. The under should be the play. One point to consider is that the bats of the Cubs can hit just about anyone. Optimal path for profit is the under team total for the White Sox today. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at the HRW.
