Game Picks - Sunday: May 9, 2010

Oy! This picker now has three sub-.500 days out of the last four. As soon as Liriano got banged around by the Orioles in the first game of a double-header, this Fan knew he was in trouble. The day was exemplified by the Game of the Day. This was a game that should have been a lock. Instead, the Cubs took their biggest drubbing of the season. Oh man, that was brutal. The entire month of May so far is barely over .500. The Fan has GOT to turn it around!

So let's start today with a full slate of Sunday games:

  • The Tigers over the Indians: Scherzer really hasn't pitched well and Talbot was really good early but not last time out. Have to go with the better team.
  • The Reds over the Cubs: Haven't lost yet picking Leake. Hope today isn't the first time.
  • The Giants over the Mets: Lincecum looks like a lock over Perez.
  • The Phillies over the Braves: Hamels versus Kawakami. Thus ends the Braves' one game winning streak.
  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Why aren't the Cardinals hitting? This has to stop right now.
  • The Nationals over the Marlins: Livan still has a WHIP under 1. Is this Fan eating crow about that or what?
  • The Astros over the Padres: Oswalt has to win some time. Might as well be today.
  • The Blue Jays over the White Sox: Gavin Floyd has not been good. Marcum is very good. Konerko is hurting.
  • The Orioles over the Twins: Matusz is a good lefty and the Twins are a lefty group of hitters. Sounds good.
  • The Rangers over the Royals: Still believe in Feldman even though he hasn't given the Fan any reason to do so.
  • The Rockies over the Dodgers: Ubaldo the Magnificent!
  • The Brewers over the Diamondbacks. The Brewers may be tired after scoring 17 runs last night. But Kennedy is due for a clunker.
  • The Angels over the Mariners: Are the Mariners the worst hitting team this side of the Astros or what?
  • The Yankees over the Red Sox: This game totally hinges on whether Cervelli catches Burnett or if Posada wins out and gets to catch him. Maybe Posada will DH.


  • The Bay Rays over the Athletics: Shields gets the win while Braden starts yelling at Longoria for breaking up his no-hitter with a bunt single in the first inning. Braden then throws his glove in the dugout and it's his fastest pitch of the day.

Yesterday: 7-9
Last week: 53-42
Month: 57-53
Season: 257-180 It used to look so pretty...
Games of the Day: 12-11

It's Romero pitching against Floyd in the Jays game, just thought I'd give you the heads up! Marcum went two days ago. Regardless, Jays will still win!

Okay, don't make fun of braden again. He went a pitched a perfect game to spite you.

William said...

Nah, Kid. He doesn't even know the Fan exists. Besides, he beat the Bay Rays. Gotta like that.

Thanks, Jaysfan45. BallHype's pitching lines are notoriously off and didn't double check them. Will have to be more careful.
