Game Picks - Tuesday: August 24, 2010

The picks have to be quick today because the Fan has to run to Houlton first thing this morning. Ugh. Not even time for coffee. The Fan does have to admit here that he was totally wrong about Coleman. My, that foot tastes good.

Tuesdays' picks:

  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Wainwright. Pirates. Does the Fan need to say more?
  • The Athletics over the Indians: Carmona has not been close to competitive lately. Gonzalez gets the win.
  • The Nationals over the Cubs: The Cubs showed up last night and should be picked again today with Zambrano on the mound. The only problem is that Lannan has been terrific of late.
  • The Tigers over the Royals: Porcello isn't a great pick, but he's better than Davies on his good nights.
  • The Phillies over the Astros: The bullpen can't keep giving games away, but Hamels should win.
  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: Two young pitchers. Giving the Yankees the edge at home.
  • The Marlins over the Mets: Dickey certainly is one of the stories of the year, but he runs into Josh Johnson here.
  • The Red Sox over the Mariners: Even Beckett can beat the Mariners.
  • The Dodgers over the Brewers: Take Lilly as a better plant than just a plain old Bush.
  • The Rangers over the Twins: Thinking that the Rangers can get to Pavano while Lewis holds the Twins down for the second straight night.
  • The Rockies over the Braves: The road is the Braves Achilles Heel. And Lowe is worse on the road too. De La Rosa gets the win.
  • The White Sox over the Orioles: Guthrie has been good of late. But this is the White Sox we are talking about.
  • The Padres over the Diamondbacks: Rodrigo Lopez goes for the D-backs. Not saying any more.
  • The Bay Rays over the Angels: Even Wade Davis can beat the Angels' line up. Santana goes for the other team.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Reds over the Giants: Wood is the better young pitcher than Sanchez.

Yesterday: 6-4
Week: 16-9
Month: 165-123
Season: 1066-778
Games of the Day: 70-54
