Game Picks - Thursday: June 4, 2009

Mediocrity. That was yesterday. But mediocrity is miles above outright futility which has been more the rule here. So that can be taken as a baby step. Or a justification. How far this feature has fallen when the once noble game picker is grasping at straws and furiously grabbing at the greased pole with his entire being?

Things have to turn around some time right? The sun has to come out after several cloudy days. There has to be a silver lining. There has to be a cliche we haven't used yet!

Oh, for gosh sakes, enough of this drivel, just pick some games already!

  • The Mets over the Pirates: Now that the Pirates have traded away what little offense they have...
  • The Blue Jays over the Angels: Tallet, that English hotel steward, will win again. How, who knows.
  • The Tigers over the Red Sox: Wakefield versus Willis. The butterfly versus the minefield. Egads! No wonder this season is going so badly.
  • The Yankees over the Rangers: The Yankees had their day of rest last night.
  • The Twins over the Indians: Carmona has been terrible.
  • The White Sox over the A's. Like the Buerhle matchup against the A's lineup.
  • The Bay Rays over the Royals: The Royals are sinking like the Titanic. The Bay Rays seem to be waking from their slumber.
  • The Giants over the Nationals: Rained out last night, Randy Johnson gets win number 300.
  • The Braves over the Cubs: Rule #5: Never pick against Jurrjens.
  • The Marlins over the Brewers: Like Johnson over Bush.
  • The Astros over the Rockies: Wandy Rodriguez bounces back from his worst start of the year.
  • The Giants over the Nationals: Cain should win this game.
  • The Cardinals over the Reds: The magician, Chris Carpenter, is pitching for St. Louis.
  • The Dodgers over the Phillies: Kershaw outpitches Cole Hamels.

Yesterday: 6-7
Week: 19-32
Month: 16-20

Johnson over Bush, huh?

As presidents, maybe. But not as pitchers.
