Game Picks - Wednesday: September 16, 2009

A little fight. A lot of bad baseball. Some major surprises (the Royals beating the Tigers again!) and it all added up to a sub-par day of picking. More on the fight in the next post. In fact, this picker is so anxious to get to the fight that we'll dispense with any further meanderings and get right to the picks for Wednesday:

  • The Twins over the Indians: The question here is whether the Indians will get more runs than Grady Sizemore will have off-season surgeries.
  • The Marlins over the Cardinals: Looking for Josh Johnson to come up big against Pineiro.
  • The Dodgers over the Pirates: The Dodgers got yet another walks off win last night. Like the Fan said, poor Zach Duke can't catch a break. That was the Pirates best chance to win a game this series.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Padres: Going with an experienced pitcher (Davis) over and inexperienced one (Mujica).
  • The Phillies over the Nationals: Really want to pick Livan to win, but that wouldn't be responsible.
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: The Rays might as well win a few after losing their season.
  • The Royals over the Tigers: The Tigers suddenly seem like the Royals and the Royals seem like the Tigers.
  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: The Yankees kill left-handers and Tallet is pitching.
  • The Reds over the Astros: Another of those frustrating picks with two unheralded youngsters. Lehr has looked better than the funny-named Bazardo.
  • The Braves over the Mets: Derek Lowe should be much better than Parnell.
  • The Angels over the Red Sox: Saunders has been better lately, but is still no picnic to pick. But Byrd starts for the Red Sox. Ouch.
  • The Cubs over the Brewers: Another battle of the former contenders. Not much to care about here.
  • The Athletics over the Rangers: The Rangers look wasted. Out of gas. Done.
  • The White Sox over the Mariners: Gavin Floyd versus Rowland-Smith. The-White-Sox-get-the-win.
  • The Giants over the Rockies: Cain should beat De La Rosa. Had the Rockies pegged to win the wild card. Not so fast, eh?

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 26-18
Month: 115-95
