Game Picks - Saturday: August 22, 2009

It's hard to tell which looked worse, this pickers results sheet or Brad Penny's pitching line. The Mets won. The Padres beat the Cardinals (told you that Richard was good). The Orioles beat the White Sox. The Dodgers beat the Cubs (again). The Twins confounded (again). It was just a humbling night. But like the Red Sox, you can get drubbed the first night and still today is a new day.

So on with today's picks because the Fan has a show today in Houlton and has to get moving:

  • The Blue Jays over the Angels: This Richmond kid looks good. And hey, the Blue Jays can actually win two games in a row.
  • The Cubs over the Dodgers: Ted Lilly versus some kid named Haeger.
  • The Yankees over the Red Sox: Burnett over Tanzawa.
  • The Reds over the Pirates: Lehr versus Zack Duke. The Pirates never score for Duke.
  • The Nationals over the Brewers: Lannon is superior to Burns. Both teams hit equally well.
  • The Astros over the Diamondbacks: Heck, Moehler has to throw a good game once in a while.
  • The Mariners over the Indians: This Fister kid (with the unfortunate name) has been really good.
  • The White Sox over the Orioles: Danks should win this game against Hernandez.
  • The Rangers over the Bay Rays: Good match up of Hunter versus Garza.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: Like Hanson over Volstad.
  • The Phillies over the Mets: Happ versus Tim Redding. Yeesh.
  • The Twins over the Royals: The Twins are doing it to the Fan again. They just are.
  • The Rockies over the Giants: De La Rosa versus some kid named Martinez.
  • The Tigers over the A's: Galarraga versus Cahill. Going with the better team.
  • The Cardinals over the Padres: Chris Carpenter puts the universe back in order.

Enjoy your weekend!
