Game Picks - Saturday: October 3, 2009

This last week of the season is just as hard to predict as this picker thought it would be. With several playoff teams just playing out the string and several others using the opportunity to try young players, the games have been all over the charts. The Dodgers continue to mystify as they lose game after game. At least in the games that mattered, the game picker was on target. The Tigers and Twins continue to make things interesting.

Two more days left in the regular season. So there are only two more days to have this much fun picking games:

  • The Cubs over the Diamondbacks: Randy Wells goes for the Cubs. He could finish with a great game and make the Rookie of the Year voting interesting.
  • The Cardinals over the Brewers: The Dodgers have given the Cards and Phillies a chance to finish with the best record in the NL. Something worth playing for? It would seem so. Lohse should beat Villanueva anyway.
  • The Mets over the Astros: Misch versus Bazardo. Who knows!?
  • The Angels over the A's: Kazmir's five inning tune up for the playoffs will be enough to win.
  • The Marlins over the Phillies: Sanchez versus Hamels. Will the Phillies rest their team or go for best record?
  • The Braves over the Nationals: You have to give the Nats credit for never giving up. But Jurrjens should best Detwiler.
  • The Royals over the Twins: Could the entire Twins' season be messed up by one Mr. Greinke?
  • The Orioles over the Blue Jays: The Blue Jays are a mess and Matt Wieters is crushing the ball.
  • The White Sox over the Tigers: Freddie Garcia pitches the game of his life and the Tigers counter with Figaro? Uh...
  • The Bay Rays over the Yankees: The Yankees are in coast mode. They played their entire roster yesterday.
  • The Pirates over the Reds: Good match up of Cueto versus Duke. Going with Duke as Cueto could be brilliant or could walk everybody in the park.
  • The Red Sox over the Indians: The Red Sox subs are better than the Indians' regulars.
  • The Rangers over the Mariners: Hunter wins the battle of young pitchers over Rowland-Smith.
  • The Giants over the Padres: Matt Cain tries to finish off what has been a good season for himself.
  • The Dodgers over the Rockies: The law of averages says the Dodgers have to win eventually. Kershaw beats De La Rosa.

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 45-34
Month: 11-14
