These are the condensed versions of picks for Saturday’s MLB games between the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays, and Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles for Winners and Whiners.

Links to the full previews are below, and confidence rating is in parentheses. Note: The 5/5 does not represent the best overall pick of the day’s games, simply the best pick of each individual game.

Writer’s Note for Sept. 15 — The A’s-Rays game will feature two “openers” facing each other for the first time since Tampa Bay started the trend earlier this season. Thus, there is admittedly some guesswork involved in picks specific to this game.
