Game Picks - Thursday: September 17, 2009

Another day, another day just barely over the .500 mark in game picks. That's 15-15 the last two days. Yippee. Yeah. Two blown saves did the day in nicely. Fuentes blew one up in Boston. Thought he lost his closer's role? Guess not. The White Sox tanked against the Mariners as did the Cubbies against the Brewers. The Royals were a stupid pick. Again. And lastly, this picker knew he was in trouble when the Rockies scored two quick runs against Cain. The Giants simply don't have the offense to come from behind. Since that is the only drama left in the standings, the Rockies rescued a game and stopped some bleeding.

There are only nine games on tap for Thursday baseball. Here's how they look:

  • The Royals (yeah, yeah) over the Tigers: Match up of the week as Greinke goes up against Jackson. If the Royals can scratch out three runs, Greinke will win.
  • The Cubs over the Brewers: Randy Wells versus Bush. That seems too good not to take.
  • The White Sox over the Mariners: Danks versus Morrow. Morrow can be just about anything so this is a flier.
  • The Phillies over the Nationals: Who would you rather have, Washington's Detwiler or Philadelphia's Cole Hamels? Yeah, same here.
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: Sure, Davis is a rookie going for the Bay Rays, but Hendrickson is starting for the Orioles. He's a relief pitcher for heaven's sake.
  • The Braves over the Mets: Jurrjens over Figueroa in what should be another easy pick.
  • The Marlins over the Reds: The Reds have been hot, but don't like the match up of Sanchez versus Maloney.
  • The Red Sox over the Angels: The Red Sox might not lose again in the regular season.
  • The Indians over the Athletics: This one is just a hunch.

Yesterday: 8-7
Week: 34-25
Month: 123-102
