5 & 9 Inning
Padres +110, +112, (Hanson / Stults)
Yesterday I called Iwakuma
possibly the best kept secret in MLB. If anyone challenges that honor it may be
Stults, and while I am at it I will tell you Tommy Hanson is not in the best of
his form and today I can back the “won’t get swept at home” theory.
White Sox-Orioles Over 5, +100, Over 9, +110, (Axelrod
Noone ever called Joe
Saunders lucky and going from one pitchers park to another won’t do him any
good. The fact is getting traded from the NL West to the AL East is like a kick
a groin to him. Now he doesn’t have the other divisional parks to help keep his
stats respectable. Axelrod comes out of the pen to give the Orioles one more
righty to bash.
Mets +150, +153, (Harvey / Hamels)
It is definitely time to take
seriously. The numbers are there.
Cardinals-Pirates Over 4.5, -120, Over 8.5,-110, (Kelly
Both teams get a starter they
can hit and the Cardinals should be smoking after the shutout, Pirates going
for the sweep, offensive war.
Royals +115, +120, (Sanchez / Chen)
Eventually either the Tigers
or White Sox will win the AL Central, but it may be by default of the other.
Neither acts or plays like an aggressive, dominant contender. Meanwhile the
Royals are playing some very good ball.
Mariners -110, -105, (Vargas / Deduno)
At least they finally have
the right favorite, but not by enough. I could justify a line of -135 here but
that would draw one of the idiots out from under his rock and possibly piss me
off, so just take my word for it, OK?
Red Sox-Angels Over 5, +100, Over 9, -105, (Stewart
Again, a ball basher’s
delight of a matchup. The low projection of 9 comes from the Angels park, but
that ain’t gonna hold off these sticks tonight.
