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.
