Game Picks - Wednesday: June 23, 2010

Not a good night for this old picker. The Game of the Day was correct but less than half of the rest of the picks ended up being correct. That means that this Fan is around .500 for the five days here in Florida. It seems this same thing occurred last year during this same trip. Maybe it's all this Florida sun or maybe it's that interleague falls on the same time frame. Whatever the case, there hasn't been a good picking day for quite a while.

But, Florida and interleague games be darned, the Fan still has a job to do. On to Wednesday:

  • The Reds over the Athletics: Cueto should be better than Mazzaro. The Reds' offense is just barely better than the A's.
  • The Nationals over the Royals: Strasburg! Don't ever remember this much excitement. Ever.
  • The Marlins over the Orioles: Picked the Orioles yesterday. Dumb. Nolasco should win.
  • The Phillies over the Indians: Kendrick pitched well his last time out against the Yankees.
  • The Cardinals over the Blue Jays: Went with the Blue Jays yesterday, but their young pitching doesn't seem to hold up against good teams like the Cardinals. Plus, Carpenter is pitching.
  • Tampa Bay over the Padres: Correia is no Latos and Shields is no Wade Davis.
  • The Mets over the Tigers. Picked the Tigers yesterday and they were whacked with Verlander. The Tigers pitch Bonderson today. Nope. Mets are rolling.
  • The Astros over the Giants: Just a hunch here that Myers will out pitch Zito.
  • The Rangers over the Pirates: Nippert is a dumb starter for the Rangers, but they will still score more than the Pirates will.
  • The Twins over the Brewres: Liriano will shut the Brew Crew down.
  • The Braves over the White Sox: Got to believe Hudson should beat Buehrle.
  • The Rockies over the Red Sox: Ubaldo! Win number 14? Should be as the Red Sox get no DH.
  • The Yankees over the Diamondbacks: Vazquez should be better than Willis. Should be? Will be.
  • The Angels over the Dodgers: The Fan is giving up on the Dodgers. Can't seem to win lately with them at all.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Mariners over the Cubs: The Cubs' offense is already terrible. Pitch Mr. Lee and it will be invisible.

Yesterday: 7-8
Week: 17-16
Month: 161-112
Season: 598-444
Games of the Day: 32-33
