Game Picks - Friday: July 9, 2010

Talk about weird! Every Thursday or any day where there are a bunch of day games and a bunch of night games and the same thing happens each time. All of the day games are correctly picked and all of the night games (except the Yankees) are incorrect. How is that possible? And because of that weird split that happens just about every time, this picker could only break even for the day. As the song says, "How bizarre, how bizarre."

The Fan should be afraid because with Friday, we go back to all night games:

  • The Phillies over the Reds: The Phillies showed last night that they aren't dead. They still have weapons. And those weapons will get to Leake and Blanton will hold the Reds down.
  • The Nationals over the Giants: Going with Strasburg over Cain. Okay, those first two picks are scary already.
  • The Tigers over the Twins: Being scientific on this one. Verlander has a 4.06 ERA lifetime versus the Twins. Liriano has a 4.41 ERA versus the Tigers for his career. Edge, Tigers at home.
  • The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: Lester versus Romano is a good match up. But the Blue Jays are better at home than the Red Sox, who are depleted, are on the road.
  • The Mets over the Braves: The Braves aren't good on the road. The Mets are good at home. Hanson has been erratic. Dickey is Dickey.
  • The Cardinals over the Astros: Just what the slumping Cardinals need. Wainwright wins his 13th.
  • The Orioles over the Rangers: Matusz has been very good lately. Feldman can't seem to find his sinker.
  • The Pirates over the Brewers: Doug Davis has been really awful. Maholm is only occasionally awful.
  • The White Sox over the Royals: Gut says Royals, but the head says White Sox. Hope Buehrle is on his game.
  • The Rockies over the Padres: De La Rosa versus Correia. The Rockies are only three back now. This is their big chance.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Marlins: The Marlins are playing terribly. Haran should shut the door for the D-Backs.
  • The Angels over the Athletics: Pineiro versus Mazzaro in a good match up. Toss up.
  • The Dodgers over the Cubs: Hard to pick against the Dodgers at home, especially against the Cubs. Lilly was banged around last time. Billingsley was good his last time out.
  • The Mariners over the Yankees: Cliff Lee owns the Yankees. Simply owns them. Posada will continue to ruin Hughes.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Bay Rays over the Indians: Shields over Carmona. Shouldn't be close.

Yesterday: 6-6
Week: 37-31
Month: 57-52
Season: 716-549
Games of the Day: 42-39
