Game Picks - Sunday: June 7, 2009

Mercy. That's all this picker can do at this point is beg for mercy. Picking games this past month has been like playing Hearts on Microsoft Windows and always having one spade of either the King, the Queen or the Ace. The picker has a mental image of some local bookie setting odds by this blog feature, only changing it to be the opposite to be favored from whatever is picked here. It's not like this picker is uninformed. A person just randomly throwing darts at team names could pick more winners at this point. Flummoxed. Totally Flummoxed.

Today's picks because the Fan doesn't want to talk about it any more.

  • The Angels over the Tigers: Saunders over Porcello.
  • The Yankees over the Bay Rays: Chamberlain over Garza in a good matchup.
  • The Blue Jays over the Royals: Halladay over Davies. It will be interesting to see what Halladay has after 133 pitches his last outing.
  • The Reds over the Cubs: Because the Fan is tired of picking against Arroyo and losing.
  • The Mets over the Nationals: The Nationals won their game of the week yesterday.
  • The Braves over the Brewers: Just because the Fan wants to get on the Hanson bandwagon. Weeee!
  • The Red Sox over the Rangers: Padilla hits J. D. Drew, which makes the right-fielder actually care about something.
  • The Pirates over the Astros: Two so-so pitchers, so toss the coin.
  • The Indians over the White Sox: Same as the game above this one.
  • The Cardinals over the Rockies: The redbirds have been blown out two games in a row. The Rockies must be exhausted.
  • The Padres over the Diamondbacks: Because Haren won't get any run support.
  • The A's over the Orioles: Because the A's are suddenly hitting.
  • The Twins over the Mariners: Because the Twins hit better than the Mariners.
  • The Giants over the Marlins: Because Lincecum discovered a new pitch when he threw his hat at the dugout wall last week.
  • The Dodgers over the Phillies: Because the Phillies are pitching a swear word.

Yesterday: 5-10
Week: 37-47
Month: 34-44

Don't despair-- you'll regress to the mean. You're one good day from being respectable...
