Game Picks - Tuesday: August 24, 2009

Just a little behind today. No doubt you have noticed. Picked correctly six out of nine last night, which is better than things have been lately.

Since it's late, let's get right to the picks:

  • The Pirates over the Phillies: Yeah, this is a stupid pick. But Ohlendorf has been like an incredible Strat-O-Matic baseball player. Have to stick with him.
  • The Yankees over the Rangers: Yankees at home spells trouble for the Rangers and Millwood.
  • The Blue Jays over the Bay Rays: Toronto is at home and Shields has been unreliable.
  • The Braves over the Padres: Latos has been good, but Jurrjens should win.
  • The Marlins over the Mets: Don't like either West or Figueroa. But somebody has to win.
  • The Red Sox over the White Sox: The White Sox are starting Freddie Garcia again. They are kidding right? It's the worst return of Freddie since the horror movies.
  • The Brewers over the Reds: The Brewers hit homers. Arroyo is prone to them.
  • The Nationals over the Cubs: If the Fan is correct on this one, the Cubs are surely dead.
  • The Twins over the Orioles: Matusz versus Gambino? Who? Sounds like a mafia fight.
  • The Royals over the Indians: Can Greinke get some support? Maybe against Masterson he can.
  • The Astros over the Cardinals: Wandy versus Wainwright in a great match up.
  • The Dodgers over the Rockies: But Kershaw has to come up big for this to be right.
  • The Tigers over the Angels: Washburn can pretend he is still in the AL West for this one.
  • The Athletics over the Mariners: Anderson versus Rowland-Smith. Two good looking young pitchers.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Giants: Haran versus Cain in another great match up.

Yesterday: 6-3
Week: 13-11
Month: 164-148
