Game Picks - Tuesday: September 14, 2010

Finally! A good day. Whew! It's been a while. The only blemishes were the Royals (why does the Fan pick them?), the Yankees (a great game) and the Cardinals (who are nearly dead). But of course, the Cardinals were the Game of the Day pick thus putting a little sour note in an otherwise groovy day of picking.

Tuesday shapes up thusly:

  • The Diamondbacks over the Reds: All young Hudson has done for the D-backs is win. Wood hasn't looked good lately for the Reds.
  • The Blue Jays over the Orioles: This game is awful to pick. There is Arrieta versus Shawn Hill. Ugh! Perhaps Bautista will have a big night.
  • The Braves over the Nationals: The Nats don't seem to have any fight left in them. Jurrjens versus Livan is a battle of pitchers not pitching very well.
  • The Indians over the Angels: Can't pick Kazmir over Tomlin. Just doesn't sound right.
  • The Phillies over the Marlins: The Phillies get another crack at Mendez, who held them to one hit last time they faced him. Hamels has been a stud this year and even more so lately.
  • The Yankees over the Bay Rays: The Bay Rays haven't seen Nova before. The Yankees have seen Garza many times.
  • The Mets over the Pirates: Dickey wins another one and Duke loses another.
  • The Tigers over the Rangers: Bonderman has seriously kicked the Fan's butt lately with several great starts in a row. He should beat Holland.
  • The Brewers over the Astros: Capuano surprised with a good outing last time out. Norris? Umm...
  • The Royals over the Athletics: Yeah, yeah. The Fan knows. But Greinke will shut down the weak hitting A's.
  • The Cardinals over the Cubs: Wainwright wins his 19th. Wells gets the hard luck loss.
  • The Twins over the White Sox: Liriano has had a nice long rest and will be unleashed against the White Sox who counter with Danks.
  • The Padres over the Rockies: The Padres have the Rockies' number this year. Garland over Hammel.
  • The Mariners over the Red Sox: French shuts down the Boston kids while Ichiro shows Dice-K why he is the better import.

And hte Game of the Day

  • The Dodgers over the Giants: Kershaw is what Zito used to be. Zito has been really lit up lately.

Yesterday: 8-3
Week: 17-9
Month: 92-83
Season: 1209-905
Games of the Day: 77-67
