Cardinals @ 2.03- I'm not the least bit concerned with Wainwright tomorrow making his season debut after losing all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He cruised thru spring training working 18 innings with a 1.45era and .91whip. In the 2 seasons prior he toyed with this Brewers lineup, in the last 8 starts his era was 1.13 and basically had a 6:1 strike outs to walks ratio. Braun has a .195 career batting average vs Wainwright, Weeks .185 and Hart .263, the only 2 batters that have had past success is Morgan .583 and Ramirez .389. While I'm not going to diss Greinke because he's a damn fine pitcher as well, had a 3.40era in 5 starts vs the Cards last year. But darn the Cards bats are hot right now to start the season, they took care of Josh Johnson, crushed Gallardo, see no reason why they don't get garbage done tomorrow as well.
Dodgers @ 2.05- Once again the linesmakers are making the Padres a slight fave tomorrow, thank you very friggin much but why? Because fuckin Dustin Moseley is on the mound, the same Moseley that had a 3-10 record last year bouncing from rotation to bullpen? Chris Capuano is average at best, had a 11-12 record with the Mets last year with a 4.55era, generally has a 3:1 so-bb ratio but gives up bombs, 27 of em last year. Thank god the Padres have garbage bats that have started the season cold. Even if LA does lose this i'll be on em sunday as well, no way does SD split this series.
Mariners @ 1.86- King Felix Hernandez vs Bartolo Colon at a pick em? really? you sure? ok if you insist.
That's my garbage, what yours?
