Game Picks - Sunday: April 25, 2010

Yes, that was humbling. In this picker's first dreadful day of picking of the season, bullpens let down, managers were dumb and some picks were just plain dumb. What is most disturbing is a four game losing streak on the Game of the Week feature. Now this is a game that is picked because it seems to be the biggest lock of the day. And then to go four straight days getting that pick wrong? Geez. Oh well. No sense crying over spilled milk. Let's get on with Sunday.

  • The Padres over the Reds: The Padres have won like nine straight. So the trick here is to figure out when the streak ends. With Richard pitching against Bailey, today shouldn't be the day.
  • The Dodgers over the Nationals: Slightly endorsing Billingsley over Olsen.
  • The Red Sox over the Orioles: The Orioles had their chance last night and threw it away. They won't get another chance.
  • The Bay Rays over the Blue Jays: Really thought the Jays would win yesterday. Think they can win today too if Morrow is as good as last time. But he probably won't be.
  • The Astros over the Pirates: The Fan would have to be on serious crack to pick Morton and the Pirates.
  • The White Sox over the Mariners: Danks should be better than Vargas, right?
  • The Cubs over the Brewers: Hedging on the "don't pick against Randy Wells" thing. But he should beat Bush.
  • The Twins over the Royals: Like the Orioles, the Royals had their chance last night. Blew it. See ya.
  • The Rangers over the Tigers: Lewis has been a revelation.
  • The Yankees over the Angels: Vazquez was a little better last time. The Yankees like hitting lefties and usually do well against Kazmir.
  • The Giants over the Cardinals: How about Zito last night!! Cain is inspired by the effort and goes out and wins.
  • The Athletics over the Indians: Masterson just can't seem to put it together.
  • The Phillies over the Diamondbacks: Kendrick was much better last time out.
  • The Rockies over the Marlins: De La Rosa will be too much for the Marlins and Rockies will hit Volstad.

And in the GAME OF THE DAY!

  • The Mets will again take out the Braves: Pelfrey has been awesome so far and the Mets will scratch a few runs off of Hanson.

Yesterday: 7-9
Last Week: 51-40
Month: 154-92
Games of the Week: 3-6 Ugh!

I couldn't believe what Zito did to the Cardinals last night. 8 shutout innings and 10 Ks. Vintage Zito.
