Chicago White Sox vs Washington Nationals Prediction

Corbin has won his last 3 starts, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s been one of the worst pitchers in baseball these last few seasons. Since 2022, Corbin has a 5.73 ERA and 1.6 WHIP. No, thank you. Yes, the Chicago White Sox aren’t a good baseball team, but Garrett Crochet is missing bats at an elite level and early Games with a quick turnaround that included a doubleheader yesterday has to favor the home team. Give me the White Sox and the cheap price.
