Game Picks - Wednesday: August 11, 2010

Nine correct and six incorrect yesterday. Meh. Some picks were real good: Baltimore, Texas, Arizona. But some didn't work out: Toronto, Oakland, Colorada. Ubaldo Jiminez gave up one run on four hits...and lost to Mike Pelfrey who hadn't pitched well since the All Star break. That's the way it goes.

Wednesday's Picks:

  • The Cardinals over the Reds: Wainwright finishes the sweep and ties Ubaldo for wins this season.
  • The Bay Rays over the Tigers: Man, the poor Tigers sunk like a rock, didn't they?
  • The Astros over the Braves: Wandy! Chipper turned an ankle.
  • The Angels over the Royals: Would pick Greinke but he was terrible last time out. Plus, he faces Weaver.
  • The Nationals over the Marlins: Scott Olsen fries his former team. Volstad goes for the Marlins.
  • The Athletics over the Mariners: Braden has put it back together. French is just okay.
  • The Dodgers over the Phillies: Suddenly, the Dodgers are playing well again. Oswalt hasn't been great since coming to the Phillies.
  • The Orioles over the Indians: Bergesen over Tomlin. Weeeee...It's the Orioles!
  • The Mets over the Rockies: Niese was nice his last time out. Francis hasn't been nice for  a while.
  • The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: Buchholz is good but Marcum is better.
  • The Diamondbacks over the Brewers: Hudson has been great since coming to the D-Backs. Bush is never a happy pick.
  • The Padres over the Pirates: The Padres happy roll continues. Correia was even good his last time out.
  • The Twins over the White Sox: Glen Perkins is back. Really? Let's give him a win then over Danks.
  • The Giants over the Cubs: The Cubs go with Gorzelanny. The Giants, Zito. Going with the Giants at home.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Rangers over the Yankees: Cliff Lee owns the Yankees. He simply owns them.

Yesterday: 9-6
Week: 27-10
Month: 66-47
Season: 967-707
Games of the Day: 62-49
