Game Picks - Friday: August 14, 2009

Whoa! This picker is way behind schedule. Been up since six working on a rush book order due today because the dang paper company was late shipping the special paper needed for the job. Oh well. At least the picks were again in the very positive zone. This picker is still atop the leader board at But the game picker has not yet finished a week on top of that silly site as you get more points sometimes being wrong half the time than when you are correct 75% of the time.

Another full Friday and since we're already late, let's get right to it.

  • The Cubs over the Pirates: Morton has been pretty good for the Pirates, but Wells is the only Cubs' pitcher to keep on winning.
  • The Angels over the Orioles: Weaver has been outstanding lately.
  • The Royals over the Tigers: Yeah, the Tigers should win, but Washburn is no lock for them and Greinke is pitching for the Royals.
  • The Marlins over the Rockies: Josh Johnson should be better than Hammel.
  • The Giants over the Mets: Zito? He's been pretty good, but it sure is scary picking him to win. Parnell though hasn't been good as a starter.
  • The Nationals over the Reds: Might as well make a Mock-ery of this pick.
  • The Braves over the Phillies: Like Jurrjens better than Blanton.
  • The Blue Jays over the Bay Rays: Another battle of the "Ays" features Halladay for the Blue Jays.
  • The Astros over the Brewers: Berkman is back and the Fan was foolish to give up on Wandy last time.
  • The Red Sox over the Rangers: Hate to make this pick, but the trust is more in Lester than in Millwood.
  • The Indians over the Twins: Still one for sixty with Twins' picks. It's amazing how this team baffles.
  • The Cardinals over the Padres: Latos is good but not as good as Wainwright.
  • The Dodgers over the Diamondbacks: Hate picking against Haran, but Kershaw will shut down the other offense.
  • The Athletics over the White Sox: Anderson has been really good for the A's and Contreras is problematic.
  • The Yankees over the Mariners: Pettitte has looked ten years younger lately and the Yankees are pounding the ball.

There you have it. Have a great weekend.

Yesterday: 6-3
Week: 39-25
Month: 90-83
