Game Picks - Saturday: August 28, 2010

Holy crap! Another bad day for this picker. That's two horrible days in a row. Ugh! This picker is never going to pick a game that A. J. Burnett starts again. Once again, the Rockies can't score for Ubaldo and he gives it up at the end. The Phillies balked the tying run home in the ninth and still won. Lincecum has now lost five in a row. Carl Crawford gets the flu before the Bay Rays can play Boston. The Blue Jays out pitched Verlander. What a mess.

Saturday just HAS to be better!

  • The Phillies over the Padres: Garland has never beaten the Phillies and his career ERA against them is near 8.
  • The Blue Jays over the Tigers: Morrow has a big game and Figaro Figaro Figaro loses.
  • The Cardinals over the Nationals: The Cardinals starting to roll again. Lohse gets his second straight win and Livan takes the loss.
  • The Mariners over the Twins: Fister has been really good at home. Can't go with the Twins with Blackburn pitching.
  • The Mets over the Astros: Good duel here between Myers and Santana, but the Mets prevail.
  • The Yankees over the White Sox: Thank goodness for Sabathia. He is 15-4 against the White Sox in his career.
  • The Reds over the Cubs: Arroyo seems likely to fall apart any day, but he hasn't so far. Wells gets the loss.
  • The Royals over the Indians: Greinke has a good game and Gomez gets Festered for the second time in a row.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: Hudson ends the losing streak in a tough match up with Nolasco. Heyward comes up big.
  • The Bay Rays over the Red Sox: Garza is 7-3 lifetime against the Red Sox. Buchholz though is scary good.
  • The Pirates over the Brewers: Capuano is a nice story, but he should stay in the bullpen, not start. Duke wins.
  • The Rangers over the Athletics: Harden strikes out ten A's as Braden gets the hard luck loss.
  • The Dodgers over the Rockies: Billingsley comes up big and Jhoulys is ghouly against the Dodgers.
  • The Orioles over the Angels: Millwood keeps the O's in the game long enough for the right-handed bats to get enough runs off of Kazmir.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Diamondbacks over the Giants: Barry Zito has not pitched well of late and never pitches well versus the D-backs. Young Hudson gets the win.

Yesterday: 6-9
Week: 33-29
Month: 183-143
Season: 1084-798
Games of the Day: 71-56
