Game Picks - Thursday: August 5, 2010

MUCH better! In fact it was almost enough to even up the week. The only bad picks were Tampa Bay (the Twins finally stole one), the Diamondbacks (what was the Fan thinking?) and two others. The correct picks included the Orioles' second straight under Showalter and Felix Pie of all people mashing the ball. If the Fan can have a decent Thursday, then the week will look a whole lot better and life can get back to normal.

Thursday's games:

  • The Twins over the Bay Rays: How soon the Fan forgets. Slowey has ten wins and Wade Davis has been pitching better. Good luck on this one.
  • The Braves over the Giants: Yeah, it's Lincecum all right, but the Braves don't lose at home. Jurrjens has to come up big though.
  • The White Sox over the Tigers: Freddie Garcia? Eek. But you can't pick against the White Sox these days.
  • The Phillies over the Marlins: Oswalt has to win a game for the Phillies. Thinking he does it tonight.
  • The Angels over the Orioles: Buck Showalter has to lose some time. Haran and the Angels make it so.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Nationals: The Fan is a slow learner, ain't he? But Detwiler? Come on. Enright is pretty good for the D-Backs.
  • The Indians over the Red Sox: This Tomlin kid has had two great starts. Dice-K goes for the Sox.
  • The Dodgers over the Padres: Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water, the Padres are starting to buckle a little. Billingsley beats Correia.
  • The Rangers over the Mariners: Hunter over King Felix who won't get any run support.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Rockies over the Pirates: Francis has been a bit shaky, but he should have no trouble here.

Yesterday: 11-4
Week: 27-29
Month: 27-29
Season: 918-679
Games of the Day: 58-47
