YTD - 0-0

I played the Astros ML and RL tonight, but did not have enough time to post it so here is what I have for tomorrow.

Monday Card...

Nationals ML -260 (1300/500)

Reds ML -110 (550/500)

Phillies ML +112 (500/560)

Royals ML +130 (500/650)

Padres ML +127 (500/635)

Mariners ML -103 (515/500)

Nationals are pitching Strasburg and I think that he has something to prove coming back from his injury last year.  Don't over think this one.

Reds are my home town team so I may be slightly biased on this one.  Cueto is on the mound against Weaver so I expect a really good game here.  If the Reds can get on the board first or secure a lead through 7 the bullpen should be good enough to lock it down.  Cold temperatures could mean some low scoring baseball in this one.  I think the Reds pull this one out at home in front of a big crowd.

As for the Phillies, I like the value in this one.  Cole Hamels has the chance to be an ace this year, and this should be a very entertaining game to watch in my mind.  

Royals +130 is good enough for me.  Chris Sale is pitching for the White Sox against the newly acquired James Shields for Kansas City.  The Royals remind me of a young Reds team a couple of years ago when they finally had their breakout season.

Padres +127 is also a great value bet.  They are squaring up against the Mets who don't have much to offer this year.  Volquez is pitching for San Diego and I know he has some good stuff as long as he is hitting the strike zone.

Finally, Mariners -103 is a great line with Felix Hernandez on the bump.  Could be a low scoring game, but I see the Mariners pulling this one out.

Hopefully we can get some bankroll early and hit the ground running this year.  Good luck everyone.

Handart you had a very solid w-l record in the NHL and I'm wondering how you consider yourself when it comes to the bases. Do you normally fair pretty well, play every day, etc.? Bol.

Pinball - This will be my first time capping the MLB, but my baseball IQ is by far the highest out of all the sports.  I did not even start watching NHL / know the rules of hockey until this year.  I plan on making a decent amount of plays every day and will look to play pitching match-ups just as I would play the goalies in the NHL.

majcihov - Maybe work on the English a bit.  

Manassa - I see you are on all these games too.  Let's get this money baby

Good start for Strasburg.  7 quality innings and the bullpen shut the door.

Nationals ML (-260) +500 

Padres are pounded right now and the Pirates are down 2-0 after a first inning slip up by Burnett.
