Game Picks - Friday: September 4, 2009

While finishing up (finally!) this huge book job that has taken up four months of time, the scores were checked on occasion and before you could say, "Schilling for Senate," the afternoon games provided a record of 0-5. Yikes! Fortunately, the evening rallied some and this picker ended up only 4-6. But it sure looked grim from the outset.

Hopefully, Friday will be a better day:

  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Wainwright should have an easy time of it here.
  • The Marlins over the Nationals: Wanted to go with Mock and the Nats, but logic intervened.
  • The Rangers over the Orioles: Main Man, Feldman! Go Feldman!
  • The Twins over the Indians: These are the games the Fan hates to pick. Pavano versus Sowers. ANYTHING can happen here.
  • The Blue Jays over the Yankees: Halladay quiets the whispers and slows the Yankees down just a little bit.
  • The Cubs over the Mets: Zambrano? Hey, he might look like his old self one of these days.
  • The Reds over the Braves: The Reds are on a roll of sorts.
  • The Tigers over the Bay Rays: Verlander strikes out 12.
  • The Astros over the Phillies: Wandy versus Lee in a great match up.
  • The Giants over the Brewers: Barry Zito has made it hard to automatically pick against him.
  • The Angels over the Royals: This one should be a lock.
  • The White Sox over the Red Sox: Another hard one to pick. Freddie Garcia versus Paul Byrd? Geez.
  • The Mariners over the Athletics: And another. Mortensen versus Rowland-Smith? Who the heck knows.
  • The Dodgers over the Padres: Kershaw should pitch five good innings against the Pads. Then the bullpen takes over.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Rockies: Not a pick against the Rockies, but a pick for Haran.

Yesterday: 4-6
Week: 22-26
Month: 21-20
