Game Picks - Tuesday: April 27, 2010

April is flying by and after a very early spring here (three times on the golf course already!) a little snow is in the air this morning. But it's still a good morning because the picks went well. Even the Game of the Week was spot on (to quote Simon Cowell). The only hiccups were the Blue Jays not being able to hold the Red Sox down in what was supposed to be a pitcher's duel that wasn't. Hudson pitched well for the Braves, but it became a battle of the bullpen's and Atlanta's lost it. And the Royals beat the Mariners, who can't hit. The record reflects that the Dodgers - Mets game got rained out. They will play two today.

  • The Mets split with the Dodgers: The Mets will win the game with Santana pitching and lose the game with Perez pitching. Simple as that.
  • The Yankees over the Orioles: Today is a big test for Phil Hughes. Sure he was fantastic last game out. But can he string good games together?
  • The Twins over the Tigers: Liriano has been terrific. Verlander not so much.
  • The Red Sox over the Blue Jays: Buchholz should be better in this game than Marcum. Both starters better last a long time after last night's bullpen-fest.
  • The Marlins over the Padres: Tempted to pick Garland and the Pads, but Florida is too hot right now.
  • The Athletics over the Bay Rays: This is the upset pick of the day. Ben Sheets pitches a strong game and Wade Davis exits early.
  • The Astros over the Reds: The Reds are reeling a bit and Harang isn't going to help the cause any.
  • The Nationals over the Cubs: Two of the Fans favorite whipping boys, Livan versus Gorzelanny. But Livan has been laughing at my face all season.
  • The White Sox over the Rangers: Buehrle is due for a good game and Lewis is due for a bad one.
  • The Brewers over the Pirates: As if things aren't bad enough for the Pirates, Burres starts tonight for them.
  • The Royals over the Mariners: Greinke and the Royals better offense should best the Mariners and Snell.
  • The Cardinals over the Braves: Lowe has been pretty poor so far. Carpenter is Carpenter.
  • The Indians over the Angels: Talbot has been the Indians' best pitcher. Saunders is Saunders. But this is a scary pick because the Angels are hot right now.
  • The Phillies over the Giants: Moyer versus Wellemeyer is no picnic either way. But the Phillies should out slug them.


  • The Rockies over the Diamondbacks: Have to go with Ubaldo. Just have to. Even if Jackson is a strong pitcher.

Yesterday: 7-3
Week: 16-9
Month: 170-101
Games of the Day: 4-7

Ubaldo is a stud. So glad I drafted him.
