Game Picks - Monday: September 20, 2010

Sunday was a real mixed bag. This picker only finished a game over .500. The White Sox couldn't hold off the Tigers (again). The Orioles' bullpen pitched seven and a third innings of three hit, shutout ball against the Yankees while the Yankees' bullpen with Mo and Wood let the game get away. Wainwright won his 19th as expected. The Braves won as expected. But the Pirates beat the Diamondbacks again and the Angels beat the Bay Rays again. The only thing really good about the day was that the Fan doesn't pick NFL games as that would really have been a mess today.

Monday has ten games on the schedule:

  • The Bay Rays over the Yankees: The Rays have to have an edge with the Yankees starting Nova and the Yankees dinged up and not hitting.
  • The Cardinals over the Marlins: Carpenter should beat Volstad as the Marlins continue to slide into the off season.
  • The Tigers over the Royals: Porcello beats Greinke as the Tigers roll along.
  • The Phillies beat the Braves: Hamels is so much more of a sure thing than Jurrjens at this point.
  • The Orioles over the Red Sox: The Fighting Showalters should get to Dice-K while Matusz shuts down Boston.
  • The Nationals over the Astros: Livan shot the Fan in the foot last time. Just call this picker a sucker.
  • The Twins over the Indians: All Duensing has to do is work around Choo.
  • The Reds over the Brewers: It's too bad that Braun is the only Brewer that hasn't packed it in for the season.
  • The Athletics over the White Sox: The White Sox played eleven innings on Sunday Night Baseball and then have to fly to Oakland to face Gonzalez. Oy.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Angels over the Rangers: It doesn't matter, but the Angels save face with a Weaver win.
