Game Picks - Monday: September 27, 2010

Sunday was the worst picking day in the Fan's life. Fifteen games and all the Fan could muster was four correct picks. Man, that was ugly. Top shelf closers blew saves all over the place. Contenders played like chumps. Hamels' line looked like he pitched a softball slow-pitch game. The Pirates got big nights from their phenoms. It's just brutal. It's a good thing the season is almost over because the Fan is not finishing well. If this picking season wasn't already ahead over 300 picks, the Fan would be a total idiot.

But we might as well keep going. This Fan never quits:

  • The Phillies over the Nationals: How do you pick games like this? The Phillies have clinched. They will rest a lot of guys. Yet Halladay is starting. But he'll probably only pitch five innings or so. Geez. No wonder the Fan is struggling.
  • The Tigers over the Indians: Two teams just finishing out the season.
  • The Mets over the Brewers: The Mets are better at home than the Brewers are on the road. Pelfrey over Bush.
  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: Rzepcynski might be the only Blue Jays pitcher that is vulnerable. And Burnett has to be sharp. Another pick that's a booby trap.
  • The Marlins over the Braves: Poor Bobby isn't going to get there. Minor is his only pitching option and the season rests on a rookie.
  • The Orioles over the Bay Rays: The Orioles held out Matusz a day for this start. Let's see if it works. Davis starts for the Bay Rays.
  • The Pirates over the Cardinals: Why not? And what does the Fan have to lose. Morton (good gravy!) wins over Lohse.
  • The Rangers over the Mariners: Wilson in a final tune up before the post season.
  • The Rockies over the Dodgers: The Rockies are at home and Ubaldo needs to win to get to 20.
  • The Twins over the Royals: Ibid the Phillies. But Slowey doesn't want to be overlooked for the playoffs. Davies goes for the Royals
  • The Cubs over the Padres: Zambrano is the perfect pitcher to be the spoiler. Stauffer has been good, but Zambrano beats him.
  • The Angels over the Athletics: Santana has finished strong. He beats Anderson.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Red Sox over the White Sox: Buchholz beats Buehrle in the balled of guys who spell their name funny.

Yesterday: Does the Fan have to type this?  [sigh] 4-11
Week: 4-11    It's not fair to have to type that twice.
Month: 183-169
Season: 1300-990
Games of the Day: 82-75
