Game Picks - Wednesday: September 2, 2009

Well, alright! That's better. At least the final tally yesterday was respectable. The week is almost back to .500. Never thought that Kansas City would win yesterday or that the Blue Jays wouldn't take at least one game of the double header. Can't believe yesterday's pick included a pick for the White Sox. They are moribund.

One more week of this major book project and this picker can finally start living life again. 80 hours a week for three months gets to a guy after a while, even if it was a nice little contract. Man, was that a lot of work. Maybe now the Fan can get a few of his own books out before Christmas. Egads! More 80 hour weeks are on the way for that.

Let's get to today's picks before the Fan falls back asleep:

  • The Reds over the Pirates: Might as well go for the sweep.
  • The Twins over the White Sox: Wonder if Buehrle wishes he were traded too.
  • The Cubs over the Astros: Yeah, NOW Bradley starts to hit. Lilly should get the win over Paulino.
  • The Nationals over the Padres: Stuck with Lannon all year. Come on, big guy, give the Fan a win.
  • The Royals over the Athletics: Probably a day too late with this pick, but maybe Bannister can, you know, like win a game?
  • The Angels over the Mariners: Kazmir wins his Angels' debut against King Felix and the Mariners.
  • The Phillies over the Giants: Happ versus (hehehehe) Brad Penny.
  • The Yankees over the Orioles: Sabathia should win this one easy.
  • The Tigers over the Indians: Porcello versus Laffey. Got to go with Porcello.
  • The Red Sox over the Bay Rays: Beckett gets back on track as the Bay Rays are toast for 2009.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: Got to go with Vazquez over Vande (the Incredible) Hurk.
  • The Rangers over the Blue Jays: Hunter shoots down the Blue Jays.
  • The Cardinals over the Brewers: Carpenter should beat Bush, no?
  • The Rockies over the Mets: Okay, Redding was decent last time out, but this time?
  • The Dodgers over the Diamondbacks: Billingsley versus Scherzer. Thome gets a pinch hit and very expensive single in his debut.

Yesterday: 10-6
Week: 21-22
Month: 10-6
