Game Picks - Wednesday: June 30, 2010

Uh oh! This picker is suddenly on a losing streak with negative results for two days in a row. The week is under too. Fortunately, the month is almost over, so the Fan can't screw that up, but still, this is a bit distressing. Remarkably, the Game of the Day was correct again for the eighth straight day. That feature is as far over .500 as it has ever been. So which would the Fan rather have: a good day of picking and a bad Game of the Day or vice versa? Probably the former.

The Fan really needs Wednesday to turn things around or this week will go to hell in a hand basket:

  • The Phillies over the Reds: The day starts off with what should be a sure pick with Halladay getting the start against Harang.
  • The Twins over the Tigers: Slowey needs to keep the ball in the park to win, but the Twins should score against Oliver.
  • The Astros over the Brewers: Wandy Rodriguez seemed to figure some things out his last outing. That should be enough to tilt this one.
  • The Cardinals over the Diamondbacks: Horrible game to pick as Suppon goes against some kid making his debut (Enright).
  • The Cubs over the Pirates: Gorzelanny versus Lincoln. Gorzelanny hasn't started in a while and Lincoln hasn't impressed since he was called up. Ugh.
  • The Rockies over the Padres: Look out NL West. Here come the Rockies.
  • The Mets over the Marlins: The Marlins have taken the first two, but Pelfrey has been so good this year.
  • The Athletics over the Orioles: Giving the nod to Ben Sheets over Kevin Millwood. Millwood has won two straight though...
  • The Mariners over the Yankees: King Felix over Vazquez. It's a good thing the Mariners won't make the playoffs because they could give a team like the Yankees fits.
  • The Blue Jays over the Indians: Litsch over Laffey although neither seems like a smart pick.
  • The Braves over the Nationals: Hate to pick a guy just coming off the DL like Jurrjens, but the option is to pick Martin who has pitched well but the Nats don't score for him.
  • The Bay Rays over the Red Sox: Think Garza will come up big and Dice-K will not.
  • The White Sox over the Royals: Peavy is on a serious roll with 21 scoreless innings. Greinke is a factor though.
  • The Rangers over the Angels: Kazmir versus some kid named Beltre making his debut. Normally the debut would never be picked, but Kazmir has given up nearly six runs a game this year.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Giants over the Dodgers: Manny is hurt again. Plus, will take Sanchez over Padilla.

Yesterday: 6-9 oof
Week: 18-23 ouch
Month: 215-156
Season: 652-488
Games of the Day: 39-33
