Game Picks - Thursday: September 23, 2010

Wednesday was a train wreck. It was bloody awful. Nothing went right. The Cardinals were awful. A rain delay forced the Yankees into long relief (not their strong suit). The Rockies and Ubaldo lost. The Orioles lost. The Astros' bullpen defeated a good effort by Wandy. The Reds were led to the slaughter. It was brutal. Crap! Oh well. Stuff happens. On to a new day.

Thursday features ten games between these twenty teams:

  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Carpenter couldn't win. Garcia couldn't win. Westbrook couldn't win. But somehow, Suppon will. Baseball is a funny game.
  • The Mariners over the Blue Jays: King Felix will dominate and Shawn Hill will do what Shawn Hill usually does.
  • The Astros over the Nationals: The Astros can beat the Cardinals and the Reds but not the Nationals? Figeuroa over Detwiler.
  • The Yankees over the Bay Rays: Sabathia over Price in another big duel.
  • The Cubs over the Giants: The Giants ran into a hot Cubs team and face a hot pitcher in Dempster. Bumgarner will not be enough.
  • The Royals over the Indians: The battle for last continues. Neither O'Sullivan or Talbot scare anyone. Going with the better offense.
  • The Brewers over the Marlins: Gallardo over Sanchez. Now the Brewers' offense is waking up? Now?
  • The Diamondbacks over the Rockies: The Rockies have messed the Rockies up, eh? Kennedy over Francis.
  • The Padres over the Dodgers: Maybe the Fan's post about the Padres last week was premature. Latos over Kuroda.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Rangers over the Athletics: Cliff Lee wins. Braden loses. The Rangers' hopes rest in Lee's back.

Yesterday: 5-10   oy
Week: 28-27   that went in the crapper quickly
Month: 160-137
Season: 1277-958   Didn't want to get to 1000 wrong picks, but it looks good to happen now.
Games of the Day: 81-72   two losses in a row
