Hey bud......this year has been one of the toughest years that I've had in ages. I'm basically even. Any given day, I could be up or down a few units but I just can't shake it. Not sure what is this year. I've certainly had a worse than expected result in one run and extra inning games but that tends to even out.

I don't have any time to post and almost never read anything. Hope things pick up and the ball bounces your way.

Finally, you're probably garbage out of luck tonight, because I have Quintana and the ChiSox as well

As always, good luck.....

1-3 yesterday.....this has been a rotten week, I'm getting my teeth kicked in. The good news is that I finally won a close game yesterday with Arizona. Maybe it will turn around today, or maybe it won't.

 

Arizona +110 Taking the D'backs again today......Rockies are hot, but I'm not a believer yet.

 

 

Kansas City +127 Wonder if they'll even play this game? Shields has been very solid. Still like the KC bullpen. Need the bats to produce some runs....Boston offense is running well right now.

 

 

Oakland +101 I think I have a pitching edge and an offensive edge in this one.....I'll take the +101 happily.

 

 

Seattle +188 Saunders isn't great, but he is capable. At this price that's about all I need. Would like the Seattle hitters to fare better than they have but I'll take a chance.

 

 

 

 

Good luck all.

0-3 yesterday, can't win any close games right now. Lost an inordinate amount of close, one run games that could go either way. I assume some will go my way at some point. Arizona and San Francisco were examples last night. Can't win either of them. Oh well. Two for today:

 

Arizona +110 Well, I'm taking these clowns for the third straight day, hopefully they don't get swept.

 

South Siders +110 Taking Sale and the Sox at plus money......a lot about this game looks like a coin flip to me.

 

 

 

Good luck all.

Good luck.......I like both plays, although both the Rays and the Tribe offenses are somewhat scary.


Hope they both hit, Getty

I haven't been very impressed with Wade Davis this year. That said, he hasn't been awful. He had a bad start and then a reasonable start.

I took KC yesterday and the game was close. Herrera blew up, couldn't see that coming.

KC has had very good starting pitching this year and the bullpen is solid, in spite of a couple of hiccups.

The KC offense has been less than stellar, although they will have Butler in the lineup today over Hosmer, that should help the KC offense. Moustakas figures to struggle with another left hander, he hasn't found anything this year. Low average and no power so far, not a great combination.

Ultimately the Braves have in my opinion a solid edge at Starting Pitcher and Offensively. I think the pens are a wash. And the Braves are just really rolling right now. I don't think KC wins this enough to justify a play, but that's my opinion. If I played the game, it would probably be KC but I'm not gonna play this one.


Good luck Jose

Thank you for your thoughts, but a 5 game winning streak doesn't mean that a team is due to lose. Those five games don't matter today when Miller takes on Burnett......you may have noticed that young Shelby Miller is off to a pretty nice start himself. I'm not betting the game, so good luck to you but I think your logic is off.

Record: 26-30    +1.61 units

 

1-2 yesterday and lost over half a unit. Four straight days of 1-2. I know how to fix that problem today.......bet two games ...Can't win any close ones right now. Herrera had been untouchable for KC and gives up three homers last night in four batters. Oh well. Two plays:

 

 

San Francisco +111 Vogelsong v Lohse....match up of a couple of guys that I'm never quite sold on. I'll take the better bullpen and hope the SF offense scores a few.

 

 

Arizona +138 I'll take the D'backs againn today......hopefully it turns out better than yesterday.

 

 

 

 

Good luck all!

"Hate going against Medlen and the very hot Atlanta Braves but I think the number justifies it." so that means if the price was lower (say, +145) you wouldn't be fading a red hot team with its top (at worst #2) pitcher going at home? Cool story bro.

You're right that I wouldn't play KC at +145.......didn't think that was too hard a concept to grasp.

And you're right that this play will probably lose, it will lose more often than it will win, another concept that isn't too hard to grasp.

But, I assume the Braves and Medlen will both lose games this year......maybe I step in garbage and today's the day. Guthrie has very solid numbers since he joined KC.........He has the ability to keep the game close and in a close game anything can happen and by betting KC, I only need the ball to bounce my way 37% of the time.......maybe it does, maybe it doesn't.

Baseball is a marathon and not a sprint.......I'm going to lose a lot of games this year. I don't have a crystal ball and don't know which ones will win and which ones will lose prior to the game so I try to give myself an advantage in every game I play......hopefully it works out over the course of a season. But I don't obsess over whether or not I win any particular game, that's just foolish.

Record: 25-28      +2.23 units

 

1-2 yesterday, losing about a quarter of a unit. Good win with San Diego. Three for today, still considering the Astros.....

 

South Siders +138 Not sold on Josh Johnson at all right now.....

 

 

Diamondbacks +113 I'm taking the better team......pitching is probably about even both can be good and both can be less than good. I think the D'backs have an advantage offensively.

 

 

Kansas City +172 Hate going against Medlen and the very hot Atlanta Braves but I think the number justifies it. Guthrie has been excellent with KC. Both teams have excellent bullpens.......game should be a close, low-scoring affair.

 

 

 

 

Good luck all!
