Game Picks - Sunday: April 18, 2010

Another week ended successfully on Saturday and Saturday included quite a few upset picks too. We had our first no-hitter of the season (Yay! Ubaldo!). The Mets and the Cardinals had to play 20 innings for that pick to be right. Thanks for the effort, guys! Heck, even the pick of the day came out almost perfect. Should get an extra point for that. Total it up and this picker went at a .625 clip for the week and the year's batting average stands at .677. Pretty heady stuff.

And so we start another week. What does Sunday have in store for us?

  • The Indians over the White Sox: Going with Carmona over Floyd. Let's hope Carmona doesn't walk the building.
  • The Yankees over the Rangers: Not picking the Rangers over the Yankees until proven otherwise.
  • The Blue Jays over the Angels: Santana could throw a good game, but Romero is a pitcher this Fan really likes for the Blue Jays.
  • The Reds over the Pirates: Arroyo is always an adventurous pick, but going for him.
  • The Phillies over the Marlins: Hamels isn't what he once was, but he's a known entity. Robertson is not.
  • The Brewers over the Nationals: Davis verses Marquis. Marquis has started the season poorly. Of course, that could mean a good start today. But probably not.
  • The Bay Rays over the Red Sox: Garza and the Bay Rays keep showing Boston they are the better team.
  • The Twins over the Royals: Pavano is winning the Fan over. What is this world coming to?
  • The Astros over the Cubs: Wandy! What does it say about the Cubs that they make the Astros look good?
  • The Padres over the Diamondbacks: As much as this Fan would love old friend, Ian Kennedy, to pitch well, he hasn't yet.
  • The Orioles over the Athletics: A match up of two of the brightest young pitchers in the American League: Matusz and Anderson. This picker thinks Matusz will be brilliant today.
  • The Dodgers over the Giants: Kershaw versus Zito. Tough pick to call. The Dodgers look sleepy.
  • The Tigers over the Mariners: Like Scherzer over Snell. Though Ichiro is starting to be Ichiro again.
  • The Cardinals over the Mets: Wainwright over Maine. Both managers better hope they get long outings from these two guys after 20 innings yesterday.


  • The Rockies over the Braves: Don't know who Smith is, but Jurrjens hasn't been good so far. He can't be right at this point.

Yesterday: 10-5
Last Week: 50-30
Month: 101-49
Game of the Day: 1-1
