Game Picks - Wednesday: September 30, 2009

It wasn't a bad day for picks yesterday. It wasn't a great day either. Picked both games of the big double-header between Detroit and Minnesota correctly. Picked the Blue Jays over the Red Sox. But this picker can't seem to see the Dodgers win nor the Cardinals. And those dang Nationals keep beating the Mets.

The Fan still has a good week and a good month going so no matter what happens tonight, September is going to be the best picking month all season here. Even so, let's go out with a bang tonight. Here's how it looks:

  • The Cubs over the Pirates: The Cubs keep piling up the victories after the horses have left the barn. Lilly is their best pitcher.
  • The Indians over the White Sox: Don't like picking Carmona, but the White Sox are starting Torres.
  • The Nationals over the Mets: Okay, go with the flow. Lannon is a very good pitcher on a very bad team and Redding can't keep throwing quality starts.
  • The Phillies over the Astros: Pedro gives reason to give him post-season starts while Moehler gives up some bombs to Rollins, Utley and Howard.
  • The Twins over the Tigers: The good news for the Tigers is that Verlander gave them a win last night. The bad news is that the Tigers have nothing after Verlander. Bonine? Oy.
  • The Yankees over the Royals: Even the Yankees at rest can't seem to lose. Chamberlain gears it up for the playoffs.
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: A ho hum battle of the also-rans in the AL East.
  • The Reds over the Cardinals: Like Arroyo over Smoltz, especially if some of the Cardinals get rested.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: The Braves lost a heartbreaker last night and the Rockies won, leaving their wild card hopes very faint. Vazquez tries to keep the pulse.
  • The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: Halladay continues to help the Red Sox back into the wild card.
  • The White Sox over the Indians: Can't see Masterson beating Buehrle.
  • The Cubs over the Pirates: Lots of make up games tonight! Zambrano should beat Karstons.
  • The Rockies over the Brewers: The Rockies win last night was huge.
  • The Padres over the Dodgers: The sleeping giant continues to sleep as the Padres will hit Garland and Richard will continue to make the White Sox look stupid.
  • The Angels over the Rangers: Turn out the lights if you're the last one out. Weaver over Holland.
  • The Athletics over the Mariners: The A's could be scary next year the way they have pitched in the second half.
  • The Giants over the Diamondbacks: It sure leaves a bad taste in the mouth to pick Penny to win. But Mulvey won't get the job done.

Yesterday: 9-5
Week: 24-15
Month: 220-163
