Game Picks - Sunday: July 11, 2010

Eleven correct, four incorrect. That's a good day. The only blemishes were the Mets, who can't stop the bleeding against the Braves; the Twins, who can't stop the bleeding against the Tigers; the Dodgers, who lost big to the Cubs (the Fan can't figure them out) and Rangers. Cliff Lee made his debut for the Rangers and lost to a pitcher who came into the game with an ERA over 7. That's the way it goes sometimes.

Sunday features the last fifteen games of the first half. It will be weird not having any games to pick for three days:

  • The Twins over the Tigers: If the Twins were going to win one game of this series, this would be it. Pavano faces Oliver, who hasn't fared well since his call up from the minors.
  • The Red Sox over the Blue Jays: Dice-K versus Litsch. The Red Sox eat up guys like Litsch with patience.
  • The Mets over the Braves: Santana versus Lowe. In a perfect universe, Santana would win this match up every time.
  • The Phillies over the Reds: The Phillies have showed a lot of spunk in this series. Hamels over Maloney.
  • The Nationals over the Giants: The Fan gets burned whenever he picks against Livan.
  • The Bay Rays over the Indians: Niemann is one of the toughest pitchers in baseball right now.
  • The Astros over the Cardinals: Wandy has made great strides lately. The Cards counter with Hawksworth. Ugh.
  • The Royals over the White Sox: Greinke verus Hudson, making his debut.
  • The Brewers over the Pirates: Randy Wolf versus Brad Lincoln. Wolf should win.
  • The Rangers over the Orioles: Wilson versus Arrieta as some semblence of order is restored.
  • The Padres over the Rockies: Francis hasn't been pitching well. Richard has been. Edge: Pads.
  • The Athletics over the Angels: Great match up of Cahill versus Weaver. Think Cahill will be better.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Marlins: Enright versus Sanabia. Uhh..
  • The Cubs over the Dodgers: Silva should be better than Padilla, though Padilla likes pitching on national television.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Yankees over the Mariners: C. C. Sabathia should easily beat Rowland-Smith

Yesterday: 11-4
Last Week: 57-41
Month: 77-62
Season: 736-559
Games of the Day: 43-40
