Game Picks - Monday: August 24, 2009

Another day, another blah day of picking results. The games are all over the place so it's hard to figure out what is going to happen. This picker accurately picked that Lincecum wouldn't beat the Rockies, Sabathia would beat Beckett, Feldman would beat the Bay Rays and Pedro would beat the Mets (sort of). But those were the highlights to a mostly kerfuffles day.

Monday features only nine games as some teams get a rest. Perhaps this little mediocre streak will get a rest too.

  • The Phillies over the Mets: Cliff Lee goes to 5-0 in the NL.
  • The Brewers over the Nationals: The suddenly awful Brewers should get a win here as Gallardo should beat Balester.
  • The Blue Jays over the Bay Rays: Halladay should win at home versus Niemann.
  • The Red Sox over the White Sox: It doesn't appear as if the Red Sox will catch the Yankees, but if they want to keep the wild card, they better get going.
  • The Royals over the Indians: Going with Gil (ga) Meche over Sowers.
  • The Twins over the Orioles: The Orioles spanked the White Sox yesterday, so who can figure them out. The Twins are even harder to figure out. Time to Eeney Meeney it.
  • The Rockies over the Giants: The Giants lack of hitting is going to give the Rockies the wild card. Besides, Marquis is pitching.
  • The Tigers over the Angels: Verlander needs to throw strikes, but if he does, he should win this one against Weaver.
  • The Athletics over the Mariners: Ian Snell has to prove he can pitch again in the majors. This Fan doesn't see it happening.

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 7-8
Month: 158-145
