Can I go back to well again?  It would pain me to do so, but you can't just subscribe to the theory of large numbers when you want to.

Need to do a bit of research on the pitchers before hand.

If Michael Saunders makes two great, but not Griffeyesque catches, the past two games are perhaps a diffferent story.

I still trust Wedge to have the team focused, but this is the final day of an 11 day trip for a young ball club.  Hmmmm.

Basically, I'm trying to talk my way out of backing these clowns again at the same price for a third consecutive day.

The Rays haven't exactly made Beavan and Noesi and the poor end of the Mariners pen look like Rangers pitchers of the pre-Ryan era.

I really like the Ms in this spot. especially at +1.5 I think all the games have been close and the M's might be able to steal this one or at least keep it close. Seems like a lot of M's games they score early then check out

Maybe M's 1st 5?

Good point on the first 5,  the mariners have struggled versus most bullpens this year.

Mariners Lineup
LF  Figgins
2B  Ackley
RF  Ichiro
3B  Seager
C   Jaso
DH  Carp
1B  Smoak
CF  Saunders
SS  Kawasaki

downgrade for this lineup, Jaso for Montero  . . . Seager batting 4th . . .and how many more MLB starts will Figgins gets.  At least he can get the ball out of infield, unlike Brendan Ryan

I agree Figgins is slumping but maybe today he breaks out.

He is 7/14 lifetime vs Niemann with avg at .500
Ichiro hasnt had much success though going 4/18 batting .222

Rays suck vs Millwood lifetime too.
Jeez maybe we switch gears to the UNDER? LOL

Malone, the under in Tamap is never a bad move. The Rays are 20-41 to the under last 61 games at home vs. a team with a losing record.

I,too have burned thru $300 on the Mariners in this series. The fact the Rays have won 3 straight nail-biters is the microcosm of why they'll be in the playoffs, and Seattle won't. Sadly, I'm willing to try one more time.

Yeah I really like the +1.5 RL for the M's and the under.
and M's 1st 5 innings.

Good luck to us. Hopefully the M's can squeek out a win maybe 4-2

I'm on the Ms first five as part of a chase. Odds are good enough that I'd actually make up for my losses on the first two games if it hits without needing to up my bet.

Tread a bit lightly with Cousins,  his previous 4 seasons are not consistent with his record this season.

He was just the icing on the cake.
I am going by hitters career numbers vs pitchers
who is in, who isnt. Getaway day, early game as well as umps.

Cousins Notoriously has had one of the smallest strike zones from all umpires along with Joe West and Mclelland

agreed on cousins, his under record this season does not correlate with his low strike % of years past.
