Game Picks - Wednesday: August 5, 2009

It was a night for red ink. Roy Halladay was 16-5 in his career against the Yankees. Now he is 16-6. The White Sox somehow cooled down the red hot Angels. The Kansas City pick looked spectacular until the bullpen blew the game. Ditto for the Marlins who let one get away from the Nationals. And the Twins! Those dang Twins! It is probable that the Fan has not correctly predicted a Twins decision since the dawn of time. They simply defy logic.

Oh well, who needs logic. Perhaps the Fan should try to be "Bones" instead of Mr. Spock. Nah. Here are a Spock-on look at today's games:

  • The Cardinals over the Mets: Face it, those star players for the Mets are never coming back.
  • The Astros over the Giants: This game has "grimace" written all over it. Moehler for the Astros and some kid named Martinez for the Giants. How can logic pick this game?
  • The Braves over the Padres: Gaudin hasn't ever blown this picker away. Hanson has shown flashes of his hype.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Pirates: Here the Fan goes picking against Ohlendorf again. The pain of doing so in the past still lingers.
  • The Rockies over the Phillies: Happ is good. But now that he's finally lost a game, we'll find out that he's not THAT good.
  • The Nationals over the Marlins: The Nats' best pitcher versus a nice looking young arm in Vanden Hurk. Going with experience.
  • The Twins over the Indians: Liriano versus Laffey. The Fan knows. He picked the Twins again. What a dope.
  • The Tigers over the Orioles: Jackson should be better than Guthrie right? Why can't the Tigers hit lately?
  • The Blue Jays over the Yankees: Like the Jays young pitcher better than Liquid Mitregen.
  • The Red Sox over the Bay Rays: Penny has been terrible lately, but the patient Red Sox will allow David Price to walk ten of them.
  • The Cubs over the Reds: Will take Harden over some kid named, Lehr. The Red suddenly look like they won't win another game this year.
  • The Mariners over the Royals: How could the Tigers let French get away?
  • The White Sox over the Angels: Gavin Floyd should beat O'Sullivan.
  • The Brewers over the Dodgers: Not a big Looper fan, but man, how can the Dodgers keep pitching Schmidt?

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 20-19
Month: 29-25

Haven't checked the rest of your picks, but I had to laugh that you picked against Happ and "some kid" named fehr, and then they both throw shutouts! Plus Price won and I would have to check, but I don't think he walked anyone. Not a good nite huh? Heh
