Game Picks - Sunday: August 2, 2009

Not a bad Saturday for the picker. Not a wonderful day, but not bad. Never saw McCutchen hitting three homers (more on that in the next post). Wandy left early, leaving that pick out to dry. Still can't figure out why the Twins aren't winning. Also can't figure out why the Yankees can't beat any team that has "Sox" in its team name. And finally, this picker has to come to grips with the fact that the Rangers aren't a contender, no matter how much the Fan wants them to be.

Sunday, the best day of baseball all week with all its day games and a full schedule, should shape up this way:

  • The Tigers over the Indians: The Tigers should win even if Galarraga is pitching. Why? Because it's another Pavano experience.
  • The Rockies over the Reds: In a good matchup, Marquis should beat Arroyo.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Mets: Thinking that Garland is due for a good game.
  • The Nationals over the Pirates: Balester has been a bright spot for the Nats.
  • The Red Sox over the Orioles: The Yankees gave them some life and they are taking it.
  • The Royals over the Bay Rays: This is the upset pick of the day. And what an upset it would be!
  • The Yankees over the White Sox: Sabathia versus Buehrle. The game should be over in less than two hours.
  • The Twins over the Angels: Why oh why does the Fan keep picking the Twins? Why?
  • The Cardinals over the Astros: Whenever the Fan hears, "Wainwright," he thinks of Dudley DoRight for some reason.
  • The Padres over the Brewers: How can the Brewers compete if they keep throwing guys like Villanueva out there?
  • The Phillies over the Giants: Barry Zito should spend some time with Jamie Moyer and find out how to win with no stuff at all.
  • The Blue Jays over the A's: Romero is better than Mazzaro allowing him to win the battle of the Ro's.
  • The Marlins over the Cubs: What a wild game yesterday! But Nolasco should quiet things down.
  • The Braves over the Dodgers: Just when the Dodgers have had their butts kicked this series, they have to finish with Jurrjens.
  • The Mariners over the Rangers: Feldman may be tired. And this Fan is rooting for Ian Snell to come back with a vengeance.

Yesterday: 9-6
Week: 48-37
Month: 9-6
