Good Luck to everyone today!!!!! :)

Cincinnati Reds ML (-130) Over Houston Astros
New York Mets ML (+113) Over Florida Marlins
New York Yankees ML (-126) Over Baltimore Orioles
Boston Red Sox RL (-1.5) (+103) Over Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Chicago White Sox ML (-144) Over Seattle Mariners

Reds ML - Houston has owned Cincy over the last couple of years but Cincy picked up a solid win over Andy Pettite yesterday. Today they've got Harang going who's throwing the ball quite well. Really just fading Houston's pitcher Brandon Duckworth who's a poor pitcher IMO.

Mets ML - Continuing to ride the hot streak here of the Mets. They're not hitting the ball great but they're getting the job done which is most important. Glavine on the mound is a bit of a concern but so far his best start of the season has been at home and most believe he'll pitch significantly better this year at home then he did in the past. Burnett has been good for the Marlins this season but comes in with a 1-5 record in his career vs the Mets. Big time Met fan so take it with a grain of salt.

Yankees ML - How much longer will Steinbrenner allow his $200+ million team to sit in last place. Cabrera has been shelled in his two starts this season and this Yankee offense is due to break out with a big game soon. 1st start of the season for Brown so that's always a concern but he threw the ball effectively in the spring.

Red Sox RL - Wakefield has thrown quite well so far this season and comes in with an 8-1 record vs the Drays. Boston won 3 in a row and won the first two of this series by a combined 16-2. Drays have dropped 5 of last 6. I don't think Kazmir will hold down the bats of the Sox in this one.

White Sox ML - Garcia is going up against his old team so a little extra motivation not that he needs it. 1.93 ERA in his 1st two starts is pretty damn good. Meche has been hit hard in his 2 starts this season. White Sox look for the sweep here with there ace on the mound.

I took the yanks ml, Sd ml, pitt ml, flo ml, sea ml, kc ml, cle ml

most of my picks were teams I didnt think would lose the series 3-0 and with pitt, redman just has a good record against the cubs, and for kc hernandez has been pitching lights out if they hit for him, money to be made, on the flip maroth has been ugly.

STL/MIL Over 9 (-116)
Cubs ML (-106)
Yankees/Orioles Over 10.5 (+104)
Oakland/Anaheim over 9.5 (-115)
Boston RL (+102)

But I know, you wouldn't mind. You can have it all if you wanted. You could have it all if it mattered so much.

04-17-2005, 07:32 PM
Back on topic, 1-1 to Adam "Next McGwire minus roids" Dunn

End 8th. 4-3 Cincy. Time for Danny "Babyface killer" Graves.

04-17-2005, 07:38 PM
BAL trying to hand NYY their 4th straight loss. 6-3 BAL T7.

If Ponson and Cabrera come into their own this year, they will hang with BOS / NYY in the AL East title bid.

04-17-2005, 07:39 PM
J. Lane doubles to deep center. D. Graves relieves Wagner.

Time to warm up Merck.

R. Chavez flied out to left. 2 outs. A. Everett hitting for Qualls. Bruntlett running for J. Lane.

04-17-2005, 07:41 PM
Everett .150 season AVG. Easy pie Danny.

04-17-2005, 07:42 PM
Bruntlett to 3rd on wild pitch. 2-0 to Everett.

04-17-2005, 07:43 PM
Focus and get Everett to chase something. The next 5 hitters are batting .250+ seasonal.

04-17-2005, 07:44 PM
Everett walks. 0-2 to C. Burke (1-3 RBI, BB) Good move walking him.

04-17-2005, 07:46 PM
C. Burke flied out to RF.

Reds win 6-5!!! R. Wagner gets the W. C.Qualls the L. D. Graves saves it for the second consecutive day!


Go Buckos!!!

I've taken the philly RL

04-17-2005, 09:33 PM
Cubs :banana:
Yankees/Orioles Over :banana:
Boston RL :banana:
Oakland/Angels Over :banana:
Cards/Brewers Over :sad:

4-1 day :yeah: I don't like the ESPN game. Hampton has owned Philly the last several starts against them. Myers has looked like Cy Young so far this year, but neither pitcher is one I feel too comfortable backing, so I'm passing.

phillies-braves game :zzz:

Another reason for me to discredit to move to bring Kolb to ATL.

You have to make sure you get the sure out. He should have gone to first base. He had all the time in the world to make a calm, accurate throw.

Instead he over threw Jones at 3B and that cost the Braves the game.

04-18-2005, 04:25 AM
For the record, no John Miller/Joe Morgan game is ever :zzz:
