September 2nd MLB Picks: Chicago White Sox @ New York Yankees
Date: Monday, September 2nd, 1:05 ET
Location: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
White Sox vs. Yankees On TV: MLB Network
Chicago White Sox (Jose Quintana) +138
New York Yankees (Phil Hughes) -150
This is one that puzzles us a little bit. The Yankees really have been playing great baseball, and they are due to give RHP Phil Hughes a halfway decent game at some point to work with. Yes, Hughes is only 4-13 on the season, but even with a woeful 4.91 ERA, he deserves better than that on a team that is in the thick of the playoff race. The Yanks have won 12 of their last 15 games at home, and they are taking on a White Sox outfit that was just swept on the road against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. LHP Jose Quintana is a good pitcher for sure, and he is going to be helping this team to the next level at some point, but we just don’t see it happening on Labor Day. The White Sox have won six in a row in this series, but the home team has more impressively won eight in a row. New York is destined to get back on track in this one, as it runs Quintana early on and finally gets a relatively easy win for Hughes, who deserves the victory more than just about anyone else in baseball at this point.
