Let's see if Wednesday's games can break open the logjam:
- The Bay Rays over the Angels: Haran pitched really well his first time out but so did Hellickson. Going with the Bay Rays at home as they are due for a win.
- The Cardinals over the Pirates: It's always difficult to pick against Mr. Carpenter, especially when opposed by Mr. Correia.
- The Mariners over the Rangers: King Felix over the king of Twitter, C. J. Wilson.
- The Royals over the White Sox: Going to ride this Royals' wave for a little while. Francis was very good his first outing and should be better than Buehrle.
- The Cubs over the Diamondbacks: Dempster started poorly last time, but he should bounce back and beat Galarraga.
- The Dodgers over the Rockies: Yeah, this pick was wrong yesterday, but Billingsley should be better than Hammel.
- The Giants over the Padres: Love what we're seeing from the Padres, but they face Lincecum today and offer only Stauffer.
- The Red Sox over the Indians: Isn't it ironic that Matsuzaka is going to get the Red Sox first win? Talbot starts for the Indians, hence this pick.
- The Tigers over the Orioles: Verlander will strike out ten batters while putting the Orioles' winning streak to pasture. Bergesen goes for the Orioles.
- The Yankees over the Twins: Pavano always pitches tough against the Yankees, but they got lucky last night and the Yankees somehow get a win with Garcia starting.
- The Phillies over the Mets: Blanton had a very good spring. Pelfrey got whacked around in his first start. More of the same today.
- The Blue Jays over the Athletics: The Blue Jays have something going on up there in Toronto. The fans are excited and it's making a difference. Litsch versus Braden.
- The Reds over the Astros: This picker is going to be completely wrong about the NL Central. The Reds look unbeatable. Volquez over Figueroa.
- The Marlins over the Nationals: Volstad comes up big and the Marlins get enough runs to beat Livan.
And the Game of the Day!
- The Braves over the Brewers: Minor goes for the Braves. The Brewers haven't even announced their starting pitcher yet. That can't be good.
Games of the Day: 3-3
