Game Picks - Monday: July 27, 2009

It seems the picker is back on track. It wasn't exactly a Hall of Fame performance but it certainly was a lot better than the day before. This picker was listening to some vintage George Harrison the other day and his song, "All Things Must Pass," certainly resonates. There are good times and there are bad times. It's just a question of remembering that things change and whatever condition we are facing currently will pass and we will be facing new conditions tomorrow. Take that to heart Royals fans. And take heed to that, Yankee fans.

It's nice to have almost a full slate of games on a Monday. Let's get to them:

  • The Cardinals over the Dodgers: Can't pick against Chris Carpenter against Randy Wolf, no matter how good the Dodgers are.
  • The Orioles over the Royals: Just can't pick a team that can't hit and that sends Chen out there to start.
  • The Yankees over the Bay Rays: The Bay Rays got to Burnett last time. He will get them this time.
  • The Reds over the Padres: A battle of two struggling teams. Have to pick one of them.
  • The Rockies over the Mets: Have to go with Jiminez over Perez.
  • The Red Sox over the Athletics: Beckett.
  • The Brewers over the Nationals: Stammen was good last time, but the Brewers are in need of victories.
  • The Astros over the Cubs: Good match up of Wandy Rodriguez versus Zambrano. Got to stick with Wandy.
  • The Rangers over the Tigers: Tough series to call. The Rangers are more desperate at this point.
  • The White Sox over the Twins: Just can't figure out this Twins team. Just totally confused.
  • The Phillies over the Diamondbacks: Have been punished enough this season picking against Moyer.
  • The Anges over the Indians: Another Pavano experience.
  • The Blue Jays over the Mariners: Hate to pick against King Felix, but Romero is pitching and that evens things out, giving the better offense of the Blue Jays the win.
  • The Giants over the Pirates: Rematch of Lincecum versus Maholm that went ten innings as a 1-1 game last time.

Yesterday: 10-5
Week: 10-5
Month: 166-121
