Game Picks - Thursday: September 2, 2010

This feature seems to be stuck on the 9-6 mark. Three of the last days with full schedules have ended up at the same numbers. The continued Cardinal woes just messes with things as does the Padres. A. J. Burnett surprisingly won a game. The Dodgers were a bad pick in hindsight, though Kershaw was as good as predicted. Seattle was probably another stupid pick although Vargas did pitch well. The good news is that this is the first month in the last three that didn't start out really bad. The Fan had come to fear the first of the month not only for paying bills but for always coming up with disaster days. At least that was avoided. Now about paying those bills...

Last night was one of the most uncomfortable sleeping nights of the year. Boy was it hot. So with all the rolling around and tossing and turning, there's been a lot of thought going into today's picks. Of course, that wasn't too difficult as there are only six games on tap:

  • The Rockies over the Phillies: The Rockies are a different team at home in their launching pad. Blanton won't get much break on his breaking pitches. Chacin wins.
  • The Yankees over the Athletics: The A's have lost the first three games of the series and now have to face Sabathia. Ouch.
  • The Orioles over the Red Sox: The Orioles will get to Dice-K and Bergesen is really pitching well.
  • The Tigers over the Twins: The Fan simply likes Verlander's power over Baker's gopher balls.
  • The Marners over the Indians: Fister over Tomlin in a battle of bad teams.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Braves over the Mets. Hudson is on a serious roll. Santana has been decent. But the Braves will win at home, especially with the Mets not hitting and playing more kids. Heyward is on fire.

Yesterday: 9-6
Week: 35-23
Month: 9-6
Season: 1126-829
Games of the Day: 74-58
