Game Picks - Monday: July 5, 2010

Despite faithful reader, Alan's, encouragement, this picker has lost his way. The eeny-meany picking method would be working better than this current method. The Pirates beat the Red Sox while the Pirates beat the Phillies? What? The Blue Jays have the Yankees on the ropes twice and lose a ball in the sun for the second straight day? Gallardo gets hurt in the early innings (like the Fan could have predicted that!). At least he got that hit the Fan predicted before he left. Ted Lilly suddenly sucks? The Rockies leave 155 men on base and still win? Billingsley suddenly pitches like an ace? The Marlins actually hold on to a lead? What the heck, man!

So that brings the Fan to today. The Marlins and Yankees both had to leave the east coast and both play in California without a day of rest. How will that affect them? The Braves have their most ineffective pitcher pitching against the great Halladay. But the Phillies can't hit. What does the Fan do? Oh heck. Talking about it won't help. Might as well just plunge in:

  • The Tigers over the Orioles: Millwood can give you a decent game. Oliver is a complete mystery starting for the Tigers. Who the heck knows...
  • The Giants over the Brewers: Sanchez over Bush. Another pick fraught with danger.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Cubs: Gorzelanny? Ian Kennedy? The Cubs offense? Crap.
  • The Phillies over the Braves: Halladay better hope the Phillies score a few off Lowe.
  • The White Sox over the Angels: Kazmir? Is it possible for him to pitch good? Floyd? Geez.
  • The Mets over the Reds: The Reds are killing the Fan. But Pelfrey is better than Harang. Ugh.
  • The Bay Rays over the Red Sox: The Bay Rays seem to be over their funk. Garza should be good. But this is the Red Sox...
  • The Rangers over the Indians: A known Laffey who hasn't been good against an unknown Beltre. What to do? Go with the better team.
  • The Dodgers over the Marlins: The long flight over the country will hurt the Marlins. Ely should win.
  • The Yankees over the Athletics: Same long flight, but the Yankees should squeak by with Vazquez, especially with Posada hurt.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Mariners over the Royals: King Felix was unhittable last time out.

Yesterday: 5-10 golly...
Week: 5-10 must that be typed twice?
Month: 25-31 embarrassing
Season: 684-528
Games of the Day: 39-38 fifth straight loss
