Game Picks - Saturday: June 12, 2010

Friday was moderately successful, which is about as good as you could ask for when it comes to interleague play. There were a couple of surprises such as the Royals beating the Reds and the Marlins beating the Bay Rays. And it was a major surprise when the Angels really spanked the Dodgers.

Saturday's games look like this:

  • The Yankees over the Astros: Vazquez should beat the Astros.
  • The Cubs over the White Sox: How can you pick against Silva until he loses?
  • The Red Sox over the Phillies: Dice-K has been really good of late. Blanton hasn't been.
  • The Nationals over the Indians: Just not feeling Indian's love today.
  • The Mets over the Orioles: Takahashi should beat Matusz.
  • The Tigers over the Pirates: Bonderson should win though it will be a high scoring game.
  • The Twins over the Braves: Derek Lowe has not been good recently.
  • The Bay Rays over the Marlins: Lightning shouldn't strike twice. Garza over Nolasco.
  • The Reds over the Royals: Cueto has control problems, but the Royals swing at too many balls.
  • The Rangers over the Brewers: Going with Feldman over Parra.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Cardinals: Giving the nod to Haren over Ottavino.
  • The Blue Jays over the Rockies: Morrow has been fun to watch over his last four starts.
  • The Mariners over the Padres: The flying fathers should not be able to do much with Cliff Lee.
  • The Athletics over the Giants: Choosing Ben Sheets over Barry Zito.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Dodgers over the Angels: Kazmir is always an iffy choice and Ely has been great.

Yesterday: 9-6
Week: 48-34
Month: 92-58
Season: 509-389
Games of the Day: 28-28 back to .500
