Game Picks - Saturday: July 3, 2010

Friday wasn't a banner day for picking but after four straight losing days, at least it was over .500. Wow! This is a tough stretch. The Blue Jays showed some spunk and spanked the Yankees' secondary relievers in extra innings. Picking the Cubs was really stupid. Both Florida team picks were wrong. The White Sox got a big win against the Rangers. The Angels lost (another Game of the Day pick down the drain) and the Indians' pick was stupid. On the the other hand, the Rockies and Diamondback picks were sweet.

Saturday should be fun with a full slate of games. Let's see if the Fan can navigate this one more successfully:

  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: Romero is good, but Pettitte rises to the occassion.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: Hanson has struggled, but the Braves should get to Sanchez.
  • The Nationals over the Mets: Have to go with Strasburg over Dickey.
  • The Twins over the Bay Rays: Liriano should be better than Wade Davis. The Twins are at home.
  • The Cardinals over the Brewers: How can you not pick Carpenter over Parra?
  • The Pirates over the Phillies: Yeah, the Fan knows. But the Pirates shut the weakened Phillies out yesterday.
  • The Indians over the Athletics: Okay. Here's the deal. The A's are a lousy road team. The Indians are at home. Westbrook isn't that bad a pitcher and the A's are starting Mortensen making his debut.
  • The Tigers over the Mariners: The Tigers need to start winning when Verlander pitches if they want a chance.
  • The Red Sox over the Orioles: Still winning despite the injuries shows how good the Boston organization really is.
  • The White Sox over the Rangers: Danks has been much better of late. Hunter hasn't lost since he came of the DL. He's due.
  • The Rockies over the Giants: Ubaldo! over Zito.
  • The Padres over the Astros: Both are pitching their worst pitchers (Correia and Norris). But the Padres' worst pitcher is better than the Astros' worst pitcher.
  • The Angels over the Royals: Can you believe Chen has the exact same ERA as Santana? Not after this game.
  • The Dodgers over the Diamondbacks: Kershaw stems Kirk Gibson fever.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Reds over the Cubs: Not making this mistake again. Cueto should take care of the moribund Cubs. Piniella and Hendry should have been gone before the Arizona duo.

Yesterday: 8-7
Week: 25-31 only a big day today can salvage this
Month: 12-14
Season: 671-511
Games of the Day: 39-36 three wrong in a row!
