Short schedule tonight, typical Monday. With only nine games to pick, let's see if the Fan can keep a good thing going:
- The Braves over the Diamondbacks: Two good young pitchers: Hanson versus Scherzer. Going with Hanson and the Braves.
- The Pirates over the Brewers: Another Villanueva start for the Brewers.
- The Angels over the Orioles: The other Santana versus Hernandez. Going with the Angels' offense on this one.
- The Mets over the Giants: This has every earmark for the Mets to lose. Wright, their only healthy and good player is now out too. Livan is starting. But, somehow, the Mets will win.
- The Rangers over the Twins: Two straight correct Twins picks! Can we make it three? Liriano has been better. But the Rangers are on a roll.
- The White Sox over the Royals: Buehrle should beat Bannister, who will make a great coach some day.
- The Cubs over the Padres: Ted Lilly is back. Hope that's a good thing.
- The Yankees over the Athletics: Burnet versus...Brett Tomko??
- The Cardinals over the Dodgers: Chris Carpenter versus a rookie. Got to like those odds.
