Game Picks - Saturday: May 8, 2010

The picking season here in the FanDome has sprung a few leaks and it's time to start bailing water as fast as possible before this great season's ship sinks completely. Even with Minnesota's first rain out in 30 years, yesterday's picks went south in hurried fashion. Silva won again. Whuh? Greinke lost again through no fault of his own...again. King Felix looked more like the court jester. The Braves lost big to the Phillies. It just wasn't a fun night for the picks.

Okay, with pail in hand and sleeves rolled up, let's tackle Saturday's picks:

  • The Marlins over the Nationals: Chico will not be the man for the Nationals and Josh Johnson will be for the Marlins.
  • The Tigers over the Indians: Verlander got April out of the way. Now he can have fun the rest of the season.
  • The Giants over the Mets: Don't know what to make of Mr. Santana for the Mets. Will pick the Giants and Wellemeyer until it can be figured out.
  • The Twins over the Orioles: Same pick as yesterday. Liriano over Millwood.
  • The Phillies over the Braves: Medlan? Nope. Going with Blanton and the Phillies.
  • The Yankees over the Red Sox: Sabathia should get the job done providing the Yankees can score four runs against Buchholz. No easy task.
  • The Bay Rays over the Athletics: Sheets just doesn't look good. Wade Davis looked great last time out.
  • The Padres over the Astros: Garland continues his improbable strikeout run.
  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Garcia over Karstens? Well, heck yeah. These picks seem too easy so far. Yikes!
  • The Blue Jays over the White Sox: Made the mistake of picking against the Blue Jays yesterday. Won't make the same mistake today. Cecil wins.
  • The Rangers over the Royals: Harden versus Meche. It's scary today with all these obvious picks.
  • The Brewers over the Diamondbacks: Wolf. Got to go with Wolf.
  • The Twins over the Orioles: Baker makes it a very long day for the Orioles. Poor guys.
  • The Mariners over the Angels: Fister has been really good. Saunders, not so much.
  • The Rockies over the Dodgers: Especially if Chacin pitches like last time.


  • The Cubs over the Reds: Mr. Castro had quite a debut yesterday, eh?

Yesterday: 6-8
Week: 46-34
Month: 50-44
Season: 250-171
Games of the Day: 12-10
