Game Picks - Friday: June 25, 2010

Seven correct and five incorrect. The day didn't start well and most of the day games were wrong. But then the night games came through, especially with comebacks which saved the day in Boston, Texas and others. This picker completely fouled up Florida as both Florida teams did the opposite of expected. Amazing night for Pedroia: five hits, three homers. Wow!

Friday has a big slate of games and the Fan can't wait to see what happens:

  • The Cubs over the Whtie Sox: Just a hunch that Zambrano will come up big against Peavy.
  • The Nationals over the Orioles: Arietta is 2-1 and Martin is 0-3. Quick, which is the better pitcher? Martin's ERA is almost two points lower.
  • The Phillies over the Blue Jays: Halladay faces his old team and is due for a win. Litsch was great his last time out. Will it carry over?
  • The Padres over the Marlins: Richard is better than Volstad. Been watching the Marlins. They don't hustle. They have no urgency.
  • The Bay Rays over the Diamdondbacks: Who made the poor D-Back's interleague schedule. Ouch.
  • The Mets over the Twins: Pelfrey takes care of the Twins and Slowey.
  • The Reds over the Indians: The battle for Ohio is a mismatch.
  • The Rangers over the Astros: The Rangers look unbeatable at this point. Moehler for the Astros won't help.
  • The Mariners over the Brewers: Rowland-Smith has been a two-named mess all season, but threw a gem last time. The Mariners are hot. The Brewers sure can hit. What to do?
  • The Royals over the Cardinals: Still riding the Greinke band wagon even though it has a flat and the support boards are all rotted out.
  • The Rockies over the Angels: The Rockies gave the Red Sox all they could want. What will they do to the Angels?
  • The Athletics over the Pirates: Mr. Lincoln has not yet been good enough. Ben Sheets at least has a chance to have a good game.
  • The Yankees over the Dodgers: Sabathia should look fine in this one. He's coming on now.
  • The Giants over the Red Sox: Wakefield is due for a clunker. Scary pick though.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Braves over the Tigers: Got to go with Medlan over an unknown Oliver making his first start for the Tigers.

Yesterday: 7-5
Week: 35-25
Month: 179-121
Season: 616-453
Games of the Day: 34-33 Over .500!

Pedroia is the man.
