Game Picks - Sunday: July 5, 2009

The weather here in Florida was gorgeous for July 4th and we didn't even get our normal afternoon rain. Hope you all had a nice day and got a chance to do something fun. As for the picks, there was a mixed back and the day ended slightly in the red. But in the grand scheme of things, there are worse things in life.

Another full slate of holiday weekend games today and here are the picks:

  • The Indians over the Athletics: The Fan has gotten this pick wrong all weekend. So either the Indians finish the sweep or finish off this picker. One or the other.
  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: Chamberlain should pick off Cecil.
  • The Pirates over the Marlins: Ohlendorf has confounded this picker and beat some really good pitchers in his last two starts. Guess we'll have to pick him over Nolasco.
  • The Cardinals over the Reds: Carpenter should beat Arroyo.
  • The Phillies over the Mets: Santana has looked human the last two weeks. And this picker can't seem to get a Met pick correctly.
  • The Braves over the Nationals: Derek Lowe has been a mystery lately, but he should beat Olsen.
  • The Red Sox over the Mariners: Lester should be a lock over Morrow.
  • The Twins over the Tigers: The Twins have hung tough against the Tigers and need this game badly to start making a move.
  • The Royals over the White Sox: Oh what the heck, let's give a pick to Bannister and the Royals.
  • The Cubs over the Brewers: Ted Lilly stops the bleeding.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Rockies: Dan Haran has been the best pitcher in the National League this side of Lincecum.
  • The Orioles over the Angels: Just because the Fan wants it to be so.
  • The Dodgers over the Padres: Billingsley should win this game.
  • The Giants over the Astros: The Giants are starting to hit. If that continues, they are scary.
  • The Rangers over the Bay Rays: Great match up of Feldman and Garza. Giving the edge to Feldman at home.

Yesterday: 7-8
