Game Picks - Saturday: June 20, 2009

Hello from Florida! We left Portland, Maine, yesterday and it was 56 and raining and we arrived here and it was 90 and sunny! Cool. And once we arrived, due to the interleague play, the Yankees were on TV playing the Marlins, so it was a great day all around. Rest. The Pool. Warm. And baseball on television. Ahhhhhh.

But the picks must go on. So here are today's:

  • The Cubs over the Indians: Picked the Indians yesterday and the bullpen blew up the game. Again. The heck with that.
  • The Brewers over the Tigers: The Fan Figaros that a rookie pitcher won't beat Bush and the Brewers.
  • The Cardinals over the Royals: Carpenter over Bannister.
  • The Mets over the Bay Rays: Santana has been struggling for him, but he should win here.
  • The Orioles over the Phillies: The Orioles are hot. The Phillies are not.
  • The Blue Jays over the Nationals: Because they should win, should they not?
  • The Red Sox over the Braves: Good matchup with Lowe versus Beckett. Will go with Beckett though.
  • The Twins over the Astros: Like Baker over Moehler.
  • The Yankees over the Marlins: The Yanks are a different team with Jeter in the lineup. Burnett pitched well his last time out.
  • The Reds over the White Sox: Cueto over Richard.
  • The Rockies over the Pirates: The Rockies are on fire!
  • The Angels over the Dodgers: First time ever a brother pitches against brother. Unfortunately, the Angels have the better brother.
  • The Giants over the Rangers: The Rangers won't be Abel to defeat Cain.
  • The A's over the Padres: Two young pitchers. Flip a coin.
  • The Mariners over the Diamondbacks: Two young pitchers. Flip a coin.

There it is. Now for the pool!

Last two days: 13-15
Week: 38-36
Month: 112-117

Welcome to the Sunshine State. Wondering if you're near me here near West Palm Beach.

Actually in North Palm. So that is pretty darn close. Flew into West Palm's airport.

I hope you enjoy your time in the sub "tropics."

This will not erase the A-Rod hiatus or the 8-0 season record against the Red Sox.

So, enjoy the spa and hope for a better year. This isn't it and your horses look like ponies that need to be put down. ;)
