Game Picks - Tuesday: September 21, 2010

Seven correct picks out of ten chances was a good day. The Yankees winning was a surprise. Livan let the Fan down. And a grand slam scored the only runs in a Cardinals defeat. But other than that, everything else went as expected. The Tigers got to Greinke for a big five run inning. Matusz held the Red Sox down. The White Sox are tanking. The Reds got a win they didn't need. The Angels got some pride in beating the Rangers as Holland was tunneled. Yes, it was a good day.

Today is the first day of autumn and it's officially time for the apex of baseball. Hold onto your seats because here comes Tuesday:

  • The Astros over the Nationals: The Astros continue their push to .500 with a Happ win over Lannan who has pitched well his last few starts.
  • The Tigers over the Royals: Did anyone ever expect Chen to win ten games? But he's been hammered by the Tigers. High scoring game as Chen faces Galarraga.
  • The Phillies over the Braves: Alas, the Braves aren't taking Cox to the promised land. Halladay wins #20 and Minor takes the loss.
  • The Yankees over the Bay Rays: The Yankees like facing Shields. Hughes needs to come up big though.
  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Westbrook gets the win over Maholm in a meaningless game.
  • The Blue Jays over the Mariners: Rzepcyinski gets a rare win as Bautista hits his 50th off of French.
  • The Marlins over the Mets: Young Mendez shuts down the Mets while the Marlins get a few off of Pelfrey.
  • The Red Sox over the Orioles: Bergesen has been very good, but Buchholz gets the win.
  • The Cubs over the Giants: Zambrano has been great and will beat Matt Cain and the Giants.
  • The Twins over the Indians: Baker will want to make his case for the playoffs and beats Carmona.
  • The Reds over the Brewers: Potentially ugly game as Volquez takes on Bush.
  • The Athletics over the White Sox: Cahill wins again as the White Sox can't get the season over fast enough.
  • The Rangers over the Angels: Lewis will edge Santana in a low scoring game.
  • The Padres over the Dodgers: The Padres got to Billingsley in his one start against them. But Richard will have to be good.

And the Game of the Day:

  • The Rockies over the Diamondbacks: De La Rosa over Saunders as the Rockies continue to push.

Yesterday: 7-3
Week: 15-10
Month: 147-120
Season: 1264-941
