This writer's internet is really acting up, so this will all seem a bit rushed. But for the sake of making sure the picks get out there, here we go.
- The Cardinals over the Phillies: Chris Carpenter will come up huge today. Roy Halladay is terrific but not unbeatable. He will give up a couple of runs to the middle of the Cardinal line up and that will be the ball game.
- The Diamondbacks over the Brewers: The Diamondbacks will stun the hometown Brewers as Ian Kennedy has a better game this time and Kirk Gibson pulls off another miracle.
Them's the picks. We'll see what happens.
