Game Picks - Monday: September 28, 2009

Another successful day. Not at the trade show, mind you, which was a downer for the most part. Though the company did make one great contact that could possibly make us a lot of money. But a successful day at picking games. It's always great when the picks are correct twice as many times as they are incorrect. And so the last full week of the season begins on a high note.

What about Monday? Let's take a look:

  • The Dodgers over the Pirates: The Dodgers would have clinched on Sunday, but sloppy fielding led to a blown save and thus the Dodgers will have to play hard for another day.
  • The Phillies over the Astros: Hamels over Bazardo, whose name this picker never gets tired of saying. The Phillies magic number is three and then they can rest.
  • The Mets over the Nationals: Let's guess that Figueroa will be better than Detwiler.
  • The White Sox over the Indians: Ozzie Guillen's tirade after Saturday's loss was a thing of ugly beauty.
  • The Twins over the Tigers: The Twins have to win this game to give the rest of the series any kind of drama.
  • The Yankees over the Royals: The Yankees will rest half the team, have hangovers, start Gaudin and will still win the game.
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: This pick is only because Hendrickson is starting for the Orioles. Otherwise, the Bay Rays should be embarrassed the way they mailed in the last two months of the season.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: The Marlins have the better offense, but Jurrjens is better than Sanchez nine times out of ten.
  • The Red Sox over the Blue Jays: The Red Sox still have some business to attend to and Beckett is starting at home.
  • The Angels over the Rangers: The Angels want to get the clinch over with and a win takes two of the magic numbers off the board in one snap.

Yesterday: 10-5
Week: 10-5
Month: 206-152
