The plan seems like it's to wait too long. People look for the perfect pick, then the days run out on them, and pressure forces a false move. This guy has only once waited this long (6 days if he doesn't end up making a selection today - I'd suggest the Balty/Washington Over, still got 15 mins to pick that as I post) during his streak, and that day he opted for the biggest fav he could (-130), and that Fav was down 1-5 after 5 innings, and only luck (a 5 run 6th, with 3 runs scored after 2 outs - then again it was tied 6-6 & in the Bot 8th a wild pitch scored the winning run with 2 outs) kept his streak alive.

Clock is ticking, pressure is mounting, I wonder if the next selection will be simply to opt for the biggest Fav possible because time pressure has forced a move.

I agree with sandique, never let your pick for the last day, the pressure is too high and you usually make the wrong move thinking and analysing the game too much.

I am just curious what will be his next selection, but as sandique said: clock is ticking, tic-tac, tic-tac.....

Ridiculous way for it to end.

The irony is thick. Skip shouldn't have been allowed/able to make a SF pick due to the odds/pitching change.

Just as ridiculous as the A's being denied 2 runs from a fair ball called foul 3 innings before. Whether you like it or not, the right team won that game.

I didn't watch any of it. I just saw Skips pick and went to ESPN to check the score then started watching the gamecast. Bot 9, 2-1 SF two men on, full count...next thing you know...walk off. A's win.

Going into the game ALL signs pointed to the Giants but baseball is so UNpredictable especially when the pen comes in of course if I was going to lose I'd rather lose earlier in the game with those runs counting then be 1 strike away..... that hurts the most!

I totally agree and in fact did a write up about this on my thread. http://www.covers.com/postingforum/post01/showmessage.aspx?spt=1010&sub=100956542&page=386  People don't look at the intangibles about certain games. I warned everyone that this was a huge rivalry game and a trap game. Oakland would be intent on avoiding the sweep. Of course they made it dramatic because of a bad call by the umps. Congrats to Skpspiks on a awesome run. Sorry it ended that way.

i have to disagree Quad. The signs actually pointed to Oakland if you look at the history. Sure Cain is on the mound and he's hot as hell but the Giants have never swept Oakland in Oakland and like I said on the $25 Dime Club thread you have to know how intense this rivalry is. I simply wouldn't have put my 20 game streak on the line with this type of game. With that said he didn't have the benefit of my analysis and I feel he waited too long to make the pick. There were safer picks earlier in the week. IMO

Don't get me wrong, it is a shitty way to lose. Better an 0-10 scoreline than walk off bomb.

 

Still being only 2 picks away, he should've been hedging at this point. I'd have laid 2-3k going for number 20. He should've made close to 4k at least hedging the A's.
