- The Braves over the Mets: Gee has been Gee Willikers for the Mets, but reality has to set in some time. Why not against Tim Hudson?
- The Twins over the Athletics: Okay, the Twins had their day off (which the Fan predicted with aplomb) and will come back with a win over Braden. Slowey gets a hand. Get it?
- The Cardinals over the Padres: Excuse the Fan for being so...umm...arrogant, but when you are fighting for a playoff spot, do you put a guy out there for a start who hasn't started all season due to injury? Young was a good pitcher in the past, but this is a little dumb to this observer. Of course, Suppon isn't any picnic for the Cardinals either.
- The Tigers over the White Sox: The White Sox have already ralphed this whole series. And now they get Verlander. Nighty night.
- The Rockies over the Dodgers: Take care, Mr. Torre. Good idea by the way.
- The Yankees over the Orioles: Guthrie has been lights out lately. But Sabathia rules the day.
- The Phillies over the Nationals: This Zimmermann kids looks like a really nice kid, but he's not yet ready for prime time. Phillies win with or despite Kendrick.
- The Indians over the Royals: Masterson is making great progress. O'Sullivan isn't.
- The Reds over the Astros: Figueroa has been good for the Astros, but he's hittable. Arroyo wins.
- The Bay Rays over the Angels: Piniero is back, but it won't be enough against David Price who neutralizes Matsui, Abreu and others.
- The Diamondbacks over the Pirates: Got this one wrong yesterday, but going with Enright over McDonald.
- The Blue Jays over the Red Sox: The loss yesterday will take the starch out of the Red Sox sails. Romero over Beckett.
- The Marlins over the Cubs: Sanchez has been consistently good for the Marlins. Coleman is a camper.
- The Giants over the Brewers: Lincecum seems to be back to his dominant self. The Brewers (with the exception of Braun) packed it in a long time ago.
And the Game of the Day:
- The Rangers over the Mariners: Cliff Lee is back on track. The Mariners won't have a prayer.
Games of the Day: 79-69
