Game Picks - Sunday: July 18, 2010

Eleven correct, five incorrect. Another successful day and a very successful week where this picker went 36-17. If you were wondering, there were 16 games yesterday because the Tigers and the Indians played a double header. Surprisingly, the Tigers lost both and both losses meant bad picks not to mention a kick in the side of the Tigers' division chances. The other bad picks were the Rangers (Lee almost pulled it out but should have intentionally walked Youkilis in the ninth), the Mariners and the Braves.

And so we move on to Sunday and a fresh new week:

- The Indians over the Tigers: Okay, so the Indians have taken all of this series and all those picks were wrong. So if the Tigers pitch Oliver and should lose, will they?
- The Yankees over the Rays: Scary pick as Mr. Price faces Mr. Pettitte. Pettitte is so money that it's hard to pick against him. But beware, Price has had success against the Yankees.
- The Marlins over the Nationals: Going with Sanabia over Stammen.
- The Reds over the Rockies: Travis Wood has been sensational. Cook goes for the Rockies.
- The Braves over the Brewers: Another scary pick but going with Lowe over Parra.
- The Red Sox over the Rangers: Lester should have no trouble winning here. Lewis goes for the Rangers.
- The Blue Jays over the Orioles: Marcum should win this one unless Matusz comes up big.
- The Astros over the Pirates: Roy Oswalt throws another gem against the lowly Pirates.
- The White Sox over the Twins: Garcia versus Blackburn (rhymes with heartburn). Logic dictates a Chisox win.
- The Athletics over the Royals: Mazzaro should be better than Bannister.
- The Cardinals over the Dodgers: Hard to pick Suppon, but the Dodgers look awful.
- The Mariners over the Angels: Vargas versus Santana. All the numbers point to a Mariners' win, but it sure is a troubling pick.
- The Diamondbacks over the Padres: Correia is the Padres' weak link. Edwin Jackson should win.
- The Mets over the Giants: Santana has been amazing lately and the Mets should be patient enough to pile up Sanchez's pitch count.

And the Game of the Day:

- The Phillies over the Cubs: Roy Halladay versus Gorzelanny. Oh yeah, mark it down.

Yesterday: 11-5
Last week: 36-17
Month: 113-79
Season: 772-576
Games of the Day: 47-40
