Predictions

The 2021 Tampa Bay Rays won the America League East Division and made the MLB playoffs. The 2021 Chicago White Sox won the American League Central Division and also made the MLB playoffs.

For the first time in the 2022 season, these two teams are facing off against teams that made the playoffs.

It’s hard to predict the outcome of the series with both teams making the playoffs last year and being consistent this season.
