Taking Houston with Roy Oswalt over Rangers with Vincente Padilla.

Thursday MLB

Feeling the Under today at the Great American Ball Park.
Getting a good Total tonight with Bobby Keppel coming off shaky outing against the Brewers, but he was throwing strikes and the final total landed at 9.
Bronson Arroyo for the Reds at home. His last outing 6 innings 5 hit 3 runs loss is bad is it gets Arroyo is very good after 6 inning performance rebounding deep in the next game. He is pitching 2.49 ERA at home, 2.10 ERA at night and 2.03 ERA against right hand bats.

KCR/CIN UNDER 9.5 at -111 for 1 unit(L)
Keppel was throwing strikes again and batters got good wood on them.
This game did not look Under at all.

Wednesday MLB

It's one of those hot no breeze day in L.A.
Early games are under way, but I'm looking at the game in Chase Field.
If you play the SEA/ARZ by the book the play is on ARZ ML after loss by 4 runs or more and against SEA after 3 straight wins.
But I going to buck the trend a bit by taking the Mariners on the short game.
Don't like RHP Edgar Gonzalez in this spot coming into Mariners hot wheel house. RHP Felix Hernandez is having the best month in 2006 so far.

SEA First 5 inning at -122 for 2 units(Push)
Try to get cute and get no prize. Should of played straight game.

Looking to stay ahead of the count, but seems like I'm always chasing time.
How I wish there was 28 hours in a day.

Going with Boston Red Sox at home. Taking Lester the young left hander over the Cuban Alay Soler.
Like Red Sox at home and though Mets are playing great road games the Sox OPS percentage tells me Red Sox are the hotter team. Left hander pitching against the Mets is added plus.

BOS -0.5 First 5 innings +105 1 unit(W)
BOS First 5 innings -124 for 2 units(W)
BOS -125 for 2 units(W)

Very nice day with Red Sox doing what they're supposed to do.

Last season Jeff Weaver than pitcher for LA Dodgers settled down this time of the year and had some games where he really looked liked Dream Weaver.
It doesn't mean it's going to happen again here, but he is a streaky pitcher with great stuff. I've always been amazed by the array of weapons he commands it's just he doesn't string them togeather all the time and he can get rattled giving up big innings. I love to see the Angels stop the skid, but falling defense and slumping bats make them a tough choice.
Noah Lowry was roughed up in Seattle, but his start before against Pirates at home was a good one.
Looking for another Under.

LAA/SFG UNDER 9 at -113 for 1 unit(Push)

Back to the bases. Moving along to mile high Denver, Oakland A's with Dan Haren against the home team Rockies with BK. Haren has been on fire and BK is not going to be a competition.
Take the early game and win this by a run or better.

OAK -0.5 First 5 innings at Even for 2 units(L)
That was a loser Kim looked much sharper than Haren.
0-1 -1.00 unit

Interleague plays start today. I'll be on Minnesota at Pittsburgh with two winning pitchers, Larinao for the Twins and Snell for the Pirates. I'm Lariano bias, but giving respect to Snell pitching winning ball since mid May his last 3 starts gives him 0.93 WHIP and 1.40 ERA with all three games going Under. Lariano is lights out his last 3 is 0.89 WHIP with 1.42 ERA and I think he has the edge with Pirates only hitting 1.71 against LHP in last 10 games, but my play on this game is the early Under in National League ballpark with pitchers batting.

MIN/PIT Under 4.5 First 5 innings at -114 for 3 units(W)
I was right with Minny too.
1-0 +3.00 units

Fernando Nieve on the mound for Houston Astros in Wrigley where Carlos Zambrano will pick it up for the Cubs.
Nieve with improving 2.92 ERA in June throwing 2.20 ERA against right.
Carlos has given up more than 2 runs only once since May.
May the pitchers battle it out

Now it's Wednesday selection.

Take a look at the game in PetCo Park.
Dodgers coming off a bad loss and today Los Angeles will send tough as nails Brad Penny to the mound. He is solid matching his best career start at 7-1.
San Diego will counter with Mike Thompson who bobbles and weaves his way.
Mike is pitching dangerously and I see the Dodgers tattooing him early.

LAD -0.5 First 5 innings at +102 for 2 units(L)
Can't believe this one lost. LA take 2 nothing lead to start, I step away to find the game go down 2-3 end of 5 innings. Penny with sub-par pitching Dodgers lose 2nd in a row.

Sorry the title should of read "Tuesday" instead of "Wednesday"

Seattle Mariners with veteran Jamie Moyer on the mound against Oakland A's with Joe Blanton getting the ball. This is a spot for Mariners to drop as they are 2-12 money line after 3 straight wins over past 2 seasons.
Oakland 6-1 against Seattle this season.
Blanton 4-1 against Seattle with his team recording 5-1.
Moyer is 13-11 against Oakland with his team recording 17-15.

Since switching the title to start with the date instead of "MLB" selections are getting better, just kidding.

I'm going to side with Southern California pitcher, UCLA product Casey Janssen, taking the mound for the Blue Jays at home. He will be facing veteran Kris Benson and the Baltimore Orioles. Although Benson has been keeping the O's in game and eating innings he has recorded 2 losses, 2 no decision with three of those games being Orioles losses in his last 4 starts. He also sports inflated road 5.85 ERA.
Casey, the Jays rookie, has gone 4 wins and 1 no decision with all 5 games being Blue Jay wins in his last 5 starts. He has pitched 5 or more innings since May.
This kid can throw strikes and he's a winner.

I don't trust Toronto's pen.

TOR -0.5 First 5 innings -107 for 3 units(L)
I give the local kid all the praise and he lets me down. Benson did look vintage.

Today I will side with Rockies to hit Tomko/Dodgers in the early going.
Jennings to hold the Blue at bay.

Tomko had been 0-4 with a 8.28 ERA over his first five starts in Denver.
The veteran right-hander is 0-3 with a 10.38 ERA over his last three outings.
He has not lasted longer than 5 1/3 innings in any of those starts while giving up four homers.

While I'm in the Big Apple just happens to be the Boston Yankees series.
What coincidence.....I'll be clearing my desk after lunch and promptly be in Bronx by batting practice time.

NYY -0.5 First 5 innings at -112 for 2 units(L)
They won the game, but does not help.


Twins, Lariano taking the mound in Seattle against Felix Hernadez.
Twins are struggling on this road trip and they are lacking offense, but if there's a bright side it's Santana, Lariano and the pen. Besides they're schedule caught Angels surging and Oakland pitching at it's best. Mariners will be the softest part of this trip. Mariners start June at home on winning note, but it was the Royals series at home Twins are not as easy.
Felix is improving, but he's serving up the long ball in almost every outing. Lariano's is throwing nasty stuff with lefties hitting 1.84 ERA and commanding 0.42 ERA for last 30 days. That's lights out.

MIN -111 for 2 units(L)
Felix out pitched Lariano making it 2 losers for the day.
I don't have the edge when I don't have enough time.
I'm returning to So Cal where the girls are always tanned and I'll have home advantage.

How about them Angels now making their way South East to Tampa Bay.
Jamie Shields gets the ball for the D-Rays the kid's not bad, but the current Angels bats are meaner than what he faced in Baltimore.
Will Jeff Weaver give up a big inning? I'm counting on him to have a good game. He's been improving and his last outing ground out ratio was fantastic.
His younger brother on his heels I hope he feeds off of that.
This might be closer than the Indians game, but take the Angels.

LAA -128 for 2 units(L)
Weaver looked pretty good after the 1st, but damage was done.
Shields had that change up working and that was my only concern with this kid. The ML moved against me and the late players had TB.

Mets are sending the Cuban, Alay Soler, on his third start. The bottom of the pitching rotation is a work in progress for the Mets. This guy is just throwing too many pitches and Dodgers are making good contact playing National League kind of ball. Tomko has been shaky this New York line up is going to give him trouble. Taking the First Half scoring.

NYM/LAD First Half Over 5 at -106 for 1 unit(L)
This was a game that started with that "Over" feel, but nothing doing all goose eggs after the 3 run 1st inning and Yes the public lost on Over 9 for the game.

Sunday MLB

The weekend is winding down. This will be a busy week and I'll be careful not to make glance over plays.

Halos at Cleveland. I do like CC for the Indians, but Big John Lackey brings his game against the Indians. Lets look for this one to be a 1 run game or better yet Angels to take the series.

LAA +1.5 Runs -130 for 1 unit(W)
Didn't need any added runs.

Reds on the road with Harang against Astros and Rodriguez.
Harang and Rodriguez with deceiving records. Harang is the better pitcher his record should be better than what it is. Rodriguez with rising ERA is not a home park pitcher. I just don't trust the late innings here.

CIN First 5 innings -105 for 1 unit(W)
CIN First 5 innings -108 for 1 unit(W)

I'll work on baseball tonight.

I've decided to increased the Reds play and taking the Halos on the pitchers angle.
Jered Weaver the younger of the Weaver brothers is a pitching phenom.
He's up for the challenge against the Indians.
Jason Johnson coming off a good outing, but don't trust him to be consistent.

LAA First 5 innings +110 for 2 units(W)

Some late night capping paid off.
