Game Picks - Monday: June 22, 2009

It was a brutal day for the game picker yesterday. Everything went wrong that could go wrong. The picker could pluck an excuse out of the deck if needed though. The strong Florida sun made the picker's head go light. Yes, that's it. It's the Florida sun's fault. There that is settled. Now that there is no personal responsibility, we can move on to today's picks:

Only four games on the schedule today:

  • The Cardinals over the Mets: Wellemeyer should be better than Redding. The Mets don't look like division favorites lately, do they?
  • The Cubs over the Braves: Really difficult to pick Dempster over Vazquez, but the Cubs are hot again. Or maybe that was just Cleveland being bad. Oh well.
  • The Rockies over the Angels: Might as well ride the wave until it is over.
  • The Giants over the A's: Two young pitchers in Cahill versus Sanchez. It's a toss up game.

That's it. Just four games. And now back to the pool...

Yesterday: 5-10
Week: 5-10
Month: 125-134

I have a 4 for 4 feeling going on.

Mets over Cards.
Braves over Cubs.
Angels over Rockies.
Giants over A's.

I don't have any heart or gut feelings. It is all about the numbers.

Good luck. Picking three games opposite of the picks found here are not a bad strategy.

And you're right. The Fan picks all his games based on heart and gut feelings. There are no baseball knowledge, awareness of numbers or smarts involved [[eyeroll]]

A little touchy, are we? ;)

Well, two games in the books and I'm thinking I should have stayed in Vegas...
