Game Picks - Monday: June 28, 2010

A second straight day where the Yankees - Dodgers game turned the tide between a negative or a positive day of picking. And this picker never figured the Yankees would pull that game out of a hat. It was unbelievable the breaks they received and created as Mariano Rivera once again showed why he is so far above guys like Jonathan Broxton. And in more unbelievable news, the Game of the Day pick of the Red Sox over Lincecum and the Giants turned out brilliantly and that feature is the furthest over .500 as it has ever been.

Interleague is over (it was time) and Monday's schedule is quite robust with 22 of the 30 MLB teams in action. Monday's picks:

  • The Marlins over the Mets: This series is in Puerto Rico right? The Marlins get to Dickey and their Puerto Rican interim manager gets a win.
  • The Blue Jays over the Indians: The Indians traded Branyon. There isn't much left there to trouble Romero very much.
  • The Nationals over the Braves: Strasburg! But will the Nats score any runs. What happened to their offense?
  • The Reds over the Phillies: Cueto shuts down the big bats while the Reds get to Kendrick.
  • The Cubs over the Pirates: The Pirates have beat up on the Cubs all year, but not this time as Wells gets the win.
  • The Brewers over the Astros: Norris versus Parra. When you have no faith in either starter, go with the home team.
  • The Twins over the Tigers: The Twins and Liriano start widening the gap again in the AL Central.
  • The White Sox over the Royals: Buehrle can stay off the plate with the Royals and their swinging sluggers.
  • The Cardinals over the Diamondbacks: Haran versus Carpenter in a very good match up. Fun to watch this one. Have no idea who will win.
  • The Giants over the Dodgers: The Dodgers are in bad shape as Billingsley comes back from the DL and Broxton won't be available.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Rockies over the Padres: Ubaldo!

Yesterday: 8-7
Week: 8-7
Month: 205-140
Season: 642-472
Game of the Day: 37-33
