Game Picks - Tuesday: September 28, 2010

Holy crap is the Fan angry. It's a good thing that the Fan is too polite to type all the obscenities that have been flying around this basement. It's like the Fan is playing Microsoft Hearts where all the odds are stacked against you and you have to play twenty games with the best strategy in the world to win half of the games. Slowey got smoked. A. J. Burnett is useless and the worst money the Yankees ever spent. At least Pavano didn't pitch for most of his time there so he couldn't do any damage. The Braves pulled a fast one and pitched Hanson on short rest (who can blame them?). C. J. Wilson pitched like Mr. Wilson on Denis the Menace. The Rockies can't score any stinking runs for Ubaldo. Ever. The Tigers got rolled over. For Pete's sake. At least the Fan did get Matusz over the Bay Rays right.

Yeah, that's vitriol spitting out of this mouth. Apologies (not really). Here are Tuesday's angry picks:

  • The Phillies over the Nationals: Oswalt finally gets his record over .500. Marquis loses.
  • The Tigers over the Indians: Scherzer over Talbot.
  • The Brewers over the Mets: The Fan wrote a nice piece on Gallardo. The least he could do would be to beat Niese.
  • The Yankees over the Blue Jays: Sabathia needs to win, but the way this has been going, Drabek will toss the first gem of his fledgling career.
  • The Reds over the Astros: Wandy has been good, but the Reds need to get this over with.
  • The Bay Rays over the Orioles: Price should be better than Bergesen.
  • The Braves over the Marlins: Hudson is probably gassed, but the old vet needs to win over Sanchez.
  • The Mariners over the Rangers: Feldman gets the start against King Felix who should get over .500 and pitch a good game.
  • The Cardinals over the Pirates: Suppon faced Burres last week and the Cardinals prevailed. History repeats itself.
  • The Twins over the Royals: Blackburn over O'Sullivan. The way Blackburn has been pitching, he might be their best bet for the fourth slot in the playoffs.
  • The Rockies over the Dodgers: The Rockies will score all the runs for Francis that they refuse to score for Ubaldo. Kuroda with the loss.
  • The Red Sox over the White Sox: Lackey beats Jackson who after a good start with the White Sox has been bombed.
  • The Padres over the Cubs: Latos may be beyond his pitch count but he needs to beat Dempster and the Cubs.
  • The Athletics over the Angels: Tough game to call with Braden facing Haran.

And the Game of the Day

  • The Giants over the Diamondbacks: Rodrigo got mad at the Fan putting him down and has pitched better of late, but Sanchez is better.

Yesterday: 5-7 with one rain out
Week: 9-18  Brutal
Month: 187-176
Season: 1305-997
Games of the Day: 83-75

@ Navin: If this Fan hears one more time about his "stuff," there will be vomit.

@ Kryss: Appreciate your faithful visits.
