Analysis

Game 1 - Colorado Rockies @ San Francisco Giants - Monday, May 9th, 2022

The Colorado Rockies have had a decent start to the season, and there is definite optimism to be had from their fanbase for the first time in a while.

Although Colorado pitching has been subpar for years now, one can say that it is tied to the stadium dimensions. However, the offense looks to be clutch and more potent this season.

With a few tweaks, the Rockies may be able to give the other teams in the NL west some trouble. An offense led by Charlie Blackmon; the Coors Field inhibitors can make some noise.

SF looks to be back in the mix as one of the best teams in baseball, along with the other two of their counterparts (Dodgers, Padres) in the NL West.

A definite contender in terms of talent, experience, and the whole package, the Giants have great players who are unselfish and willing to contribute in many different ways.

Contact and RBI mentality will always have the Giants in a more solid position to win the game, and this series should be nonetheless.

Conclusion - SF Giants to win

Game 2 - New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox - Thursday, May 12th, 2022

The Bronx Bombers are looking like real threats to win it all this year, but we say this every year.

The fact of the matter is, consistency is key for the Yankees, and in order to succeed they must put all into every game the season has to offer.

Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are must-see television, and every time they are up to bat, the crowd is on their feet.

Pitching has been decent as well but could be an area of improvement before the trade deadline. Otherwise, this team is too talented to not dominate in current circumstances.

The Chicago White Sox are not in the best of positions after starting the season off in a delayed manner.

Their chemistry and hitting is not in the best form at the moment, although there is expectation that will not continue throughout the season.

Pitching is not a problem for the White Sox, and if the offense can get it together, they can pick up this game and series.
