Game Picks - Wednesday: August 19, 2009

Another good night for this picker as the correct picks doubled the incorrect ones. Really thought Feldman was going to win, especially early on in that contest, but he hung too many breaking balls. The rain kept Pedro from pitching much in his game, which might have turned out differently if he had stayed in there. But let's here it for Moyer who pitched great in relief and got the win. Plus, it continues to be difficult to believe the Cubs are this bad or that the Angels are this good.

But overall, any night you predict Kansas City and the Pirates to win and they do, it's a good night. Speaking of Pittsburgh, how about that Ohlendorf? Wow, huh?

  • The Royals over the White Sox: Can the Royals win two in a row? Can Greinke pitch a good game and get a win?
  • The Brewers over the Pirates: Like Maholm. But like Gallardo and the Brewers' offense better.
  • The Phillies over the Diamondbacks: Lee versus Haran. Normally would pick Haran, but Lee has been lights out so far in the National League.
  • The Rockies over the Nationals: Marquis!
  • The Angels over the Indians: Jared Weaver pitched more like his brother last time out. Looking for him to bounce back in this game.
  • The Tigers over the Mariners: The Mariners won't catch up to Verlander's fastball.
  • The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: Halladay!
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: Niemann over Tillman. Good team over bad team.
  • The Reds over the Giants: The two worst offenses in baseball continue to "slug" it out. Add to that drama, two "crafty" pitchers in Zito and Arroyo.
  • The Braves over the Mets: The Braves should be better than they are playing. But they just can't seem to get over the hump.
  • The Marlins over the Astros: No faith in Sean West, but have no idea who Baczardo is.
  • The Rangers over the Twins: This game is impossible to be sure about. Home Run Baker versus Millwood.
  • The Cubs over the Padres: Because the Fan still can't accept that the Cubs are this bad.
  • The Athletics over the Yankees: The upset pick of the day since Gaudin is starting for the Yanks.
  • The Cardinals over the Dodgers: This NLCS preview features Wainwright versus Kershaw.

Yesterday: 10-5
Week: 28-11
Month: 126-105
