Game Picks - Friday: July 30, 2010

This picker made quite a few stupid picks yesterday and though the day ended up over .500 (thanks to an improbable win by the Orioles), the Fan doesn't really want to talk about it. Let's just call it temporary insanity and go on to Friday:

  • The Phillies over the Nationals: Oswalt makes his Phillies debut and should have no trouble against the Nats.
  • The Blue Jays over the Indians: Would like to think Masterson can come up big in this one, but Marcum is really good.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Mets: The D-Backs have lost seven in a row and are due for a win. Ian Kennedy should keep them in the game. Pelfrey for the Mets has really been struggling.
  • The Braves over the Reds: Cueto is unpredictable but has been pitching well. The Braves' Medlin has been good as well and this Fan thinks he'll end up on top.
  • The Red Sox over the Tigers: Lester versus Galarraga. Glub blub goes the Tigers.
  • The Yankees over the Rays: Hughes versus Davis in a battle of young guns. The Yankees end up on top.
  • The Astros over the Brewers: J. A. Happ wins his debut for his new team. Parra should leak enough to make this happen.
  • The Twins over the Mariners: Not getting sucked in by Fister again. Though Baker is no picnic of a pick.
  • The Royals over the Orioles: O'Sullivan is a good looking pitcher. The Royals should get to Arieta.
  • The Athletics over the White Sox: Anderson is back and stymies the White Sox. Hudson starts for the Chisox.
  • The Cubs over the Rockies: Dempster has had a much better year than Francis.
  • The Padres over the Marlins: LeBlanc should be better than Volstad, who is a mystery.
  • The Rangers over the Angels: Hunter ensures that the Rangers continue to bury the Angels.
  • The Giants over the Dodgers: Lincecum better come out of his funk to make this pick come true.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Can imagine any scenario for the Cardinals losing this game with Carpenter versus Karstens.

Yesterday: 6-5
Week: 41-25
Month: 217-140
Season: 876-635
Games of the Day: 54-45
