today was easy, tomorrow not so much maybe
Blue Jays @ 1.72- Romero always has quality starts vs the Rays, 6 hits, 1 run or maybe 2 is the norm, was solid vs Boston in his last start, see no reason why tomorrow is any different. Neimann is a typical #5 starter, likely wont last 5 innings tomorrow, not good considering how the Rays bullpen has been lately.
Padres @ 2.07- Why is old man Moyer still playing, the dudes almost 50, doesn't he have grandchildren and garbage he can spend time with? Anyways this Anthony Bass kid is pretty good actually, mostly a bullpen guy but does spot starts. He has pitched 56 innings in the bigs and has a 1.75era and 1.22whip, not bad and has only given up 3 bombs. He started vs the Rocks twice last year and won both of em.
Cubs @ 2.58- Yes the Cubs but why not? Dempster has been rock solid in his 1st 2 starts, Johnson not so much. The Cubs lineup are hitting as well as the Marlins and average almost a half run more per game. Reyes and Stanton are struggling and Heath Bell has been a disaster so far. There's no reason to lay juice on Johnson right now untill he regains his form.
Indians @ 1.81- I can't get into the idea that Kevin Millwood has anything left in the tank even though he pitched well his last start in Texas. The Tribe got their bats goin in a big way in KC last weekend, maybe it carries over into Seattle.
Good luck tomorrow, tread carefully, later
