Game Picks - Friday: July 23, 2010

Doh! Holy cow! This picker came within one pick of being perfect. The only blemish on the entire day was that Hamels matched Wainwright zero for zero until it became a bullpen game that the Phillies won. That's it! One wrong. Singing with Bono, "It's a beautiful day..." The day's windfall took an ordinary or pedestrian week and made it a good one. If this picker could do that every day, then Las Vegas would be calling.

But Friday is another day and while it is tempting to quit while ahead, the picks must go on:

  • The Cubs over the Cardinals: Suppon is starting for the Cardinals. Ick. Going with Randy Wells and the Cubbies.
  • The Pirates over the Padres: The Pirates have been hitting better of late and face Correia. Maholm has a full run better ERA.
  • The Phillies over the Rockes: Cook was great last time out but butts up against Halladay. Hasn't been a good stretch for the Rockies.
  • The Twins over the Orioles: Duensing has taken over for Blackburn in the rotation. That's a good thing.
  • The Indians over the Bay Rays: Niemann is good. But so is Carmona, especially lately. The Indians have been much better of late.
  • The Blue Jays over the Tigers: Marcum versus Porcello. Going with Marcum who has had an excellent year.
  • The Yankees over the Royals: Any other pitcher than Bannister and the Fan would pick the other guy instead of Burnett.
  • The Marlins over the Braves: This kids, Sanabia, looks really good. Lowe is Lowe.
  • The Reds over the Astros: Mr. Wood gets to face the weakest hitting team in baseball. Mr. Norris does not.
  • The Rangers over the Angels: Taking Wilson over Saunders. This really is the Rangers' year.
  • The Brewers over the Nationals: Narveson has been good of late. Think he will out pitch Stammen.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Giants: Both Sanchez and Jackson could be good. The D-backs are better at home and just swept the Mets.
  • The Athletics over the White Sox: Cahill is the A's best pitcher. Buehrle can be had.
  • The Red Sox over the Mariners: Beckett is back from the DL and that is scary, but come on, it's the Mariners.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Mets over the Dodgers: The Mets finally win a game as Santana is better than Padilla.

Yesterday: 11-1 woooooo!
Week: 43-26
Month: 156-105
Season: 815-602
Games of the Day: 49-43
