Game Picks - Thursday: August 13, 2009

Last week {{shiver}} is a thing of the past and this week has been a good one. Heck, even the month is now in the black. Well, alright! Only those crazy Twins messed up again along with the Cubs and the Marlins (can you say, "Thump"), Diamondbacks and Bay Rays. Other than that, everything worked out really well.

Tonight is a short schedule with only nine games, but let's see if we can keep this ball rolling:

  • The Rangers over the Indians: Feldman! Go Feldman!
  • The Twins over the Royals: Here we go again with the Twins. The Fan is even picking Pavano to win. Geez.
  • The Tigers over the Red Sox: The Tigers need to get moving and they have the closest thing to an ace on the mound. Meanwhile, the Red Sox are pitching Buckholz.
  • The Padres over the Brewers: Latos has been surprisingly good. Parra has not. The Brewers are in disarray.
  • The Phillies over the Cubs: Lee has been unbelievable for the Phillies.
  • The Rockies over the Pirates: Would like to go with Maholm and the Pirates, but Maholm has been beatable lately and this picker can't pick against Marquis.
  • The Reds over the Nationals: Arroyo is due for a good game.
  • The Astros over the Marlins: Not real swift on Mike Hampton who has been getting pounded. But Sean West gives this picker no confidence.
  • The Yankees over the Mariners: Sabathia has his second good start in a row and the New Yorkers jump all over Ian Snell despite the jet lag.

Beautiful summer day in Maine. Hope it's nice wherever you are!

Yesterday: 10-5
