Game Picks - Friday: October 8, 2010

The playoffs couldn't be going better for the Yankees and the Rangers. Nor could they be going any better for this picker who is a perfect 6-0 for the playoffs. But this isn't a chest puffing experience. The games have been easy to pick thus far. Friday features one more slam dunk and one that could go either way.

Let's look at the two games:

  • The Phillies over the Reds: This one should be easy. Oswalt should have no trouble beating Arroyo who doesn't have anything in his arsenal that should stop the Phillies offense. Can't see any other outcome.
  • The Braves over the Giants: Matt Cain has been really good, but this pick is based on the fact that the Giants have a .616 OPS against power pitchers with only 137 runs scored in 113 games. Hanson is a power pitcher. But...he will need to come up big, throw strikes and dominate like he is capable of doing.

Yesterday: 3-0
Week: 14-7
Month: 29-23
Season: 1355-1038
