Game Picks - Thursday: October 7, 2010

Going 3-0 on playoff picks is not that difficult when you consider the starters of Lee, Halladay and Sabathia. Two of the three performed as expected and the latter pitched well enough to keep his team in the game long enough for them to score what they needed. Bottom line is that the Reds are pretty much toast, the Rays' weakness on offense is exposed and the Twins have to find a way to beat the Yankees.

Thursday's picks:

  • The Giants over the Braves: Lowe has been fabulous down the stretch. Lincecum has been fabulous for two months.
  • The Rangers over the Bay Rays: Simply don't see the Rays getting enough post season offense to compete with the Rangers who are back to full strength.
  • The Yankees over the Twins: Pavano has had some good starts against the Yankees in the past, but he really scuffled coming down the stretch. Pettitte is lefty which is troubling for the Twins and he knows how to win these games.

Yesterday: 3-0
Week: 11-7
Month: 26-23
Season: 1355-1038
