Game Picks - Monday: August 31, 2009

This picker gave himself a Nyquil coma last night and slept in. There were a few sneezes so it seemed justified. But really, a good night sleep was needed badly and as such, this picker went to bed at 9:30. Wow! Haven't been to bed that early since Batman was a television show. As such, with the Nyquil still creating a bit of a mind fog, it doesn't seem that bad that the picks yesterday were again below par. The only thing cutting through the fog is that the Yankees won despite a really bizarre and stupid use of Joba Chamberlain and another masterful performance by Zack Greinke. More on those in a few minutes. But for now, let's just get to the picks for Monday:

  • The Bay Rays over the Tigers: The Young Bay Rays hitters are going to jump all over Washburn.
  • The Reds over the Pirates: Is the Fan really going to pick the Reds when Kip Wells is the starter? He has no choice.
  • The Yankees over the Orioles: Did anyone really think Andy Pettitte was going to be the Yankees second best starter when the season started?
  • The Pirates over the Reds: The second game a day/night double header. Maholm should win this one.
  • The Marlins over the Braves: Josh Johnson should beat Kawakami.
  • The Astros over the Cubs: Oswalt out duels Harden.
  • The Rangers over the Blue Jays: Young Holland needs to keep the ball rolling for the Rangers and their fading wild card chances.
  • The White Sox over the Twins: The White Sox got their butts kicked by the Yankees and will take it out on the Twins.
  • The Nationals over the Padres: This picker has to pick Livan to win. It just can't be any other way.
  • The Royals over the Athletics: Hochever pitches a good game.
  • The Dodgers over the Diamondbacks: Wolf over Davis. Is Manny going to get going soon?
  • The Mariners over the Angels: French fries Saunders.

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 7-8
Month: 197-188
