Game Picks - Saturday: August 21, 2010

It was another blah kind of day for baseball picks. There were more correct than incorrect. But not by a whole lot. Things might have looked a little better if the White Sox hadn't been rained out.against the Royals. But then again, it could have been worse. None of the big three in the AL East won. Tampa Bay's bullpen imploded. Burnett was awful (no surprise) and Lester had nothing (big surprise). There were some great picks like the Brewers over the Padres and the Cardinals losing. Nothing spectacular. Just another day of picks.

Perhaps Saturday will be more zestful:

  • The Braves over the Cubs: Hanson gets the win over hard luck Gorzelanny.
  • The Yankees over the Mariners: Do the Yankees have enough starting pitching? Hmmm...But Vazquez should beat Vargas.
  • The Nationals over the Phillies: Got to pull for Strasburg. Can't help it.
  • The Twins over the Angels: Slowey over Bell. Scioscia must be going crazy.
  • The Mets over the Pirates: Niese should get the win here against McDonald, who has had some good moments.
  • The Rangers over the Orioles: It will be another close game as the Orioles are patsies no longer. But Lee should win over Bergesen.
  • The Astros over the Marlins: Wandy pitches a good game and Volstad continues to struggle.
  • The Tigers over the Indians: Tomlin has been good for the Indians, but Scherzer is coming on strong.
  • The Padres over the Brewers: Narveson is a great hitting pitcher. But he's no a good pitcher. Correia should win.
  • The White Sox and Royals split their double-header. I know that's cheating, but hey, it's the Fan's site, right?
  • The Cardinals over the Giants: Carpenter still looks like an ace. Don't know what Lincecum will look like.
  • The Rockies over the Diamdondbacks: Still riding Ubaldo. He gave up one run last time out and lost.
  • The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: Dice-K gets beat and Romero pitches a gem.
  • The Bay Rays over the Athletics: Anderson is a tough customer, but the Rays counter with Price. The Bay Rays should get that kid Crowe. Then they would have T. Crowe Price.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Reds over the Dodgers: Billingsley can be had and Cueto pitches well in the spacious Chavez Ravine.

Yesterday: 8-6
Week: 48-31
Month: 141-106
Season: 1042-761
Game of the Day: 69-52  This feature is on fire!
