Game Picks - Tuesday: June 29, 2010

"Monday Monday...can't trust that day. Monday Monday...sometimes it just turns out that way..." It wasn't a good day for this picker. Not too many things went according to plan. Poor Strasburg can't get any defense or run support. It just didn't turn out the way this Fan expected it. But that's okay. Days like that keep you humble.

And there is always Tuesday to get back into the swing of things. Here's how the Fan sees it:

  • The Marlins over the Mets: Puerto Rico is hot this time of year. Really hot. The Marlins can take it. The Mets, along with their Japanese starter, Takahashi, cannot.
  • The Athletics over the Orioles: Matusz just looks all beaten down. Poor kid. Braden will win.
  • The Yankees over the Mariners: Lee and Hughes will cancel each other out. The Yankees have the better offense and know Lee very well.
  • The Blue Jays over the Indians: Morrow needs to come up big, but he's capable. Carmona has not looked good of late.
  • The Reds over the Phillies: Can lightning strike twice? Leake's sinker versus Blanton's meatballs.
  • The Braves over the Nationals: The Nats simply can't score these days.
  • The Bay Rays over the Red Sox: The Bay Rays are reeling, but they should jump on Lackey while Shields holds down the depleted Red Sox.
  • The Cubs over the Pirates: The Pirates keep beating the Cubs. Why? Who knows. Lilly should win though.
  • The Brewers over the Astros: Gallardo should be better than Myers.
  • The Tigers over the Twins: Galarraga should beat Blackburn. Too bad about Zumaya. Too many long outings.
  • The Royals over the White Sox: Yeah, well, the Fan didn't think the Royals would win last night either.
  • The Rockies over the Padres: Here come the Rockies. They are only five games back now. Hammel over LeBlanc.
  • The Rangers over the Angels: Good match up of Feldman versus Pineiro. Think the Rangers will out score the Angels.
  • The Dodgers over the Giants: Ely comes up big and the Dodgers get to Cain.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Cardinals over the Diamondbacks: Wainwright over Willis. If Willis has another start like last time, he could be done.

Yesterday: 4-7
Week: 12-14
Month: 209-147
Season: 646-479
Games of the Day: 38-33
