Cincinnati Reds at St Louis Cardinals.
Righty match up today with Reds hitting .335 compared to Cardinals .262 and I'm not sure if Tom Shearn is going to stick but first outing sure looked good. Minor league lifer has lot to prove and his chances look good with Reds rolling 8-2 in last 10. Anthony Reyes is pitching much better in August but still racking losses. His chances for win increases from11.1% away to 22.2% home not a number deserving as strong home favorites.

Hey sorry fellas off line business has kept me from publishing plays hopefully the break will do some good. I don't think it's been that long since taking some lumps with a public favorite or maybe worse public road favorite! Something else I usually go against 1-4 slide in last 5 games and the game weighs on division outcome. Did you figured it out?

New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies.
NL East drama unfolds as games get tighter at Citizens Bank park. Mets will try to stop the bleeding with El Duque 9-4. Road games does not shine as much as home games, but 5-3 with Mets winning 9-4 is not too shabby. Let's not forget he has pitched 6 quality out of last 7 with Mets winning 7-0. Phillies Kyle Lohse since coming over from the Reds have done a good job matter of fact he is coming off a excellent outing against San Diego 6.2 innings 4 hit 2 runs with 84 pitches. I think he may have pitched above himself he did something similar before facing Mets (7/15) going 9 innings 4 hits 1 run against Arizona (7/06) than Mets promptly knocked him out in 4 innings. His team has changed but Mets can hit him.

Toronto Blue Jays at Oakland A's
Jessie Litsch 5-6 with 13 games 8 quality starts. Though Jays are 5-8 he is very good at keeping his team in the game. He shows better pitching on the road with 5 quality out of
7 starts 2.59 ERA and Jays are 3-4. Stand out number for Litsch is 2-11 O/U and away games are 0-7 O/U.
Chad Gaudin is second highest money pitcher in Oakland rotation. His record is 10-9 earning his team 16-11 when he is on the mound. Coming off a excellent outing at Tampa Bay only allowing 1 run in 7 innings pitched, but he's not all that when he is home. 4 quality out of 12 home starts 5-5 record with misleading 7-5 wins-losses for A's. I'm not sure if he's turned it around with recent form 2 quality out of last 7 (6.15 ERA 2-4 record) O/U doesn't stand out but overall it's UNDER by 11-16-1. Against RHP 5-10-1 O/U(P) and Toronto's hitting .213 against RHP in last 10 games. Oakland pen has been taxed lately.

Toronto Blue Jays at Oakland A's will play out a dejavu game. Same pitchers Burnett and Loaiza will have their rematch from 8/22 4-1 Oakland win at Toronto. I understand Under is the conventional play but I think adjustments will play a factor for today's offense. Oakland since playing Toronto series has trended Over. Toronto is alternating Over after poor OPS under .500 in last 10 games. These two teams have recorded 4-2 O/U this season.

Not so at home with 6 quality out of 13 and Mets are marginal 7-6. Recent form is not good with 1 quality outing in last 7 recording 4-3 with 5.89 ERA. David Wells is hard to measure at this point but Dodgers getting +176? They can single a team to death, run the bases with the best and beat you with their pen. Very capable on the road.

Florida Marlins at Cincinnati Reds.
Today Marlins right hander Sergio Mitre take the ball and he has been shaky in his last 2 home starts but it looked much better on the road. I'm not going to build up Mitre into something he's not and I know that Over total looks pretty tempting with Belisle on the mound for Reds. But let's keep away from that O/U 11 and go with the Fish. I think it's a good spot for Marlins to sneak one in here as Belisle home fade has been money.

Chicago Cubs at Arizona Diamondbacks
Owings for Arizona is a middle of the way pitcher and although he has recorded 7 quality out of 11 home games and 3 quality out of 10 road games Diamondback's wins and losses does not reflect those record. Hill is similar in terms of quality not reflecting his team record. So taking both pitchers as a wash Cubs seems to be warming winning SF series and St Louis series before Arizona. Zona came back winning the road series at Atlanta and Florida before dropping to Milwaukee at home maybe a cooling trend.

What's up fellas? For the past several days my selections have become very public sided wager although it's all outcome of my process I'm not a fan of moving with the crowd. You have to do the Kansas city shuffle in this game, you know when everybody looks right you look to the left.

I have multiple games in consideration and I will post them if they become plays.

This one is a go.
Minnesota Twins at Baltimore Orioles.
O's got blasted in their opening double header modern era record 30-3 Texas and blew the 2nd game leading 7-6 at end of 7th coughed up 3 at top of 8th for 9-7 Texas final. Time to start fading? Not for me with Boof Bonser and Twins visiting Camden Yards he is 3 quality out of 11 road games going 2-6 and Twins losing 3-8. He suffers against AL East 1-5 and has not recorded a win since June 10th last win for Twins with Bonser making the start was July 21 showing 5 team losses since. Twins have given minimal run support scoring 4 - 3 - 1 - 2 - 0 in those 5 losses. O's will send Steve Trachsel who is amending his starts to respectable level and he does perform better at home. O's bull pen did drop their ERA to 2.21 from 4.92 average in last 7 games (before Texas massacre) I think O's as a home dog is a good overnight take.

BAL +107 for 1 unit(L)

Cleveland Indians at Detroit Tigers
Today's pitchers have both struggled against their opponent. Westbrook 2-6 in last 8 against Tigers. Robertson 1-8 in last 9 against Indians but the difference is in current form. Westbrook has settled down and is catching a groove going 4 quality out of last 5. Jake has been going deep pitching 8 innings once, 7 innings 3 times and 6 innings once in last 5 Tribes winning 3 of those starts. Nate Robertson is not there yet pitching 3 quality out of last 10 and has extended beyond 6 innings only twice. Cleveland offense improving against lefties .317 in last 10 climbing from .273 average.

Seattle Mariners at Minnesota Twins.
Mariners keeping pace in the West and today will look to sweep the Twins at the dome.
Countering to stop the bleeding will be Carlos Silva. His game is surging and has not given up more than 2 earned runs in last 4 starts. Last 7 games have produced 5 quality starts dropping his WHIP to 1.007 unfortunately Twins have not backed his game recording mediocre 4-3.
Mariner's starter Miguel Batista is the top money earning starting pitcher with his team recording 15-9. Mariners are 7-3 in his last 10 starts and he has allowed more than 3 runs once in those 10 outings.

San Diego Padres at New York Mets.
We have a good match up here with Padres Chris Young (9-4) 1.93 ERA going against John Maine (13-7) 3.59 ERA. Chris since returning from his injury (left game early in COL 7/24 with oblique strain) he has started 2 games pitching 12 innings 6 hits 4 runs 7 walks and 11 strike outs. 200 pitches 124 for strikes 6 ground outs 19 fly outs with his team dropping both games. John's having some problems in August and I'm not listing his numbers but his game is better than that and I would take consideration with Mets offensive edge at home. Mets have not lost to Padres at home covering last 3 seasons.

My nice mini streak was snapped so I took a break. On to Monday's game.

Milwaukee Brewers at Arizona Diamondbacks.
Here is two teams going opposite directions and Brewers have gone 5-15 in last 20 games while D-Backs are 15-5. These two teams meet for a rematch after Brew Crew took the series 2-1 from the snakes at home 7/16 ~ 7/18 and 7/14 ~ 7/17 was the last time Brewer stung 4 wins in a row. Desert Snakes are 37-23 winning 61.7% at home, 41-20 as a favorite 67.2% winner. Home starter Doug Davis is excellent 9 quality outings out of 12 at home with team recording 10-2 record. Brewers coming off a melt down game against the Reds will send Yovani Gallardo 4-2, away record of 1-1 with Brewers recording 1-3. The sample data might be too small but you can say he's going through some learning pains.

St Louis Cardinals in Chicago today. Cubs been playing the Cards tough this season especially in the cozy confines of Wrigley Field, but this is much improved Cardinals squad with much improved pitcher on the mound. If you watched the first game of this series Cubs had nothing over Cardinals they were evenly matched. Maybe the pitchers are even wash today although Marshall does not go deep and if that's the case Cards are the hunters on the heels of Central leading Cubs. La Russa will pull no punches in letting this series get away.
Sean Marshall 13 innings pitched in last 3 starts giving up 22 hits 15 runs 3 home runs (1 in each game) Anthony Reyes 18 innings pitched in last 3 starts giving up 18 hits 6 runs no home run.

Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
I guess D Rays taking out Dice K and BoSox at Fenway as a +245 Doggie was a bit much for many. Will Jackson take the back to back road/home win? Will Byrd get knocked around?
Jackson might be raising his game but there wasn't much to go any other direction. He is still 3-11 with team going 6-16 in 22 starts, 10 quality outing with 6 on road 4 at home. He does better on the road than home where quality is only 4 with team going 2-8, 7.37 ERA 2.000 WHIP and most likely to give up the long ball. Paul Byrd is a road warrior 10 games 6 quality starts 4-2 record with team winning 6-4 but importantly lower ERA and WHIP.
Tribes maybe down but not to be underestimated against a team with losing season sending their money losing pitcher.

Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres.
Let's take a look at this pitching match up. LHP Jeff Francis 13-5 has been on a roll. Team record 17-7 with 13 quality starts tells you Rockies have supported him well on the mound. 7-2 with 8-3 team record on the road and his team is 100% in last 7 starts. 13-3 against RHP, 6-3 against NL West, 9-1 as a underdog. He will go opposite wily veteran RHP Gregg Maddux 7-9 with team record 11-13, 14 quality starts 6 out of 11 good one's at home and team is above .500 winner at 7-4. Last 7 starts are forgettable 0-4 although he's had 4 quality games and his team is 2-5. Rox with offensive edge and bull pen pitching well this dog looks qualified to win.

COL +112 for 1 unit(L)

Anaheim Angels at Toronto Blue Jays.
This is a good one with young Joe Saunders going against Blue Jay's ace Doc Halladay 13-5 team 15-7, 14 quality out of 22 starts 12 at home 7 quality with 9-1 record team is 10-2, how's that for impressive. Bit shaky lately 4-2 in last 7 starts 3 quality and team is marginal 4-3. That could be trouble when bats are kind of quiet and home runs have dried up in August.
Joe is 6-0 team 8-1. Data sample is small but 5 quality out of 9 and 3 for 3 on the road with team going 3-0. His WHIP drops to 1.131 from 1.544 at home, road ERA 2.21 home ERA 4.19.
Isn't this tempting underdog at better than +155 or so? But Toronto plays Angels tough at 11-5 3 seasons overall 6-1 at home. I will go with the total to go Under 9 which is O/U 4-12 last 3 seasons 1-6 at home and these two pitcher are in good spot to battle it out.

LAA/TOR UNDER 9 at -111 for 1 unit(W)

New York Mets at Pittsburgh Pirates.
Pirates beat up on Giants and looked real good doing it except for the last game of double header but let's face it El Duque's recent 7 starts have produced 6-1 record for the Mets and Ian Snell has done exact opposite at 1-6 for the Bucks. I'm not getting into details with a popular pick it's just a tall order for Bucks to win here.

Battle of bad team will go back to back with SF Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates relocating from the Bay to Steel Town in Monday's double header. Will the Bucks continue to kick around the Giants who were swept at home with the shutout in Sunday's game? I'm not sure when enough is enough losing for either team and it's never a good idea to get too high on a team with a losing season. I like the fact both Giants starting pitchers flew to Pittsburgh before Sunday's game to be ready for the double header and 1st game pitcher Matt Cain turned the corner with a win in last outing cooling off Washington Nationals who came in hot. Cain has been pitching in very good form not reflective of his record. Paul Maholm had been improving since late May but struggles have returned in his last outing. Day light also favors Cain.
Thinking about taking the second game with Giants too.

Looks like a tight match up as indicated by the line movement. Buddy Carlyle pitching under the radar 7-3 with team record of 9-4 Atlanta producing run support. Braves win on the road and plays division opponents tough. Same can be said about Phillies at home and Moyer looking good in recent games. I'll take the veteran left hander. Phils 42-34 against right handed pitching, 34-19 coming off a loss. Moyer pitching less than half of Carlyle's ERA in last 3 games.

Overall road numbers are little better 8 quality starts out of 13 but LA wins are still marginal 7-6. Cardinals have given Dodgers plenty of problems and Looper at home is very dangerous 7 quality starts out of 10 with Cards recording 7-3.

I thought I made a Thursday post but apparently not. My write up on St Louis Cardinals and Seattle Mariners was wasted effort, maybe not total waste I did win both.

San Diego Padres at Cincinnati Reds.
Padres are struggling to get a grip on the road David Wells have been replaced by Wilfredo Ledezma coming from Braves bull pen. He will be stretching his pitch count but this will be pitching by committee. Maybe the change will be good for Wifredo I think he could tough it for 5 innings and hand the ball to Padres capable pen. Reds have been very good at Great American Ballpark in recent games and Matt Belisle is hoping to ride the good times, but Matt 6-8 with team record of 8-14 only has 3 quality starts out of 11 home games with Reds recording 1-7 .

Boston Red Sox making their way from West coast road trip back to East coast and they love playing the O's. Matsuzaka will take the ball and he has been pitching well, 2-1 last 3 games with 1.77 ERA and 1.181 WHIP, he is a road warrior with 10 of his 15 quality starts coming on the road that's 10 quality starts in 13 road games . Baltimore will counter with their best money pitcher Erik Bedard 12-4 with 16-8 team record coming in with 8 wins in 9 games all 9 games won by O's. One thing that bothers me he has been giving up some long balls and that could spell trouble with Boston's second crack at Bedard.

Need to get some traction here. The early game tomorrow is Milwaukee Brewers at Colorado Rockies. Brewers will send a good looking young right hander Yovani Gallardo 4-1 with 2.55 ERA excellent SO to BB 47 - 17 and WHIP of 1.04 His last outing against Phillies was outstanding sitting down 14 in a row at one point and recording his third straight win. His down side? He is still being groomed less likely to go deep into a game, can get rattled rushing his game with base runners. Road games are producing 4.03 ERA and day games are 3.14 ERA
Jeff Francis will take the ball for Rox at home and he is pitching great. Top money maker for Rockies 12-5 record with team winning 16-7. He was knocked around in Milwaukee 7/13 but luckily Rox outscored the Brew crew and I think this will be a different Francis in Denver.
Rockies 7-2 in last 9 home games with all of those wins covering -1.5 runs and late game for Colorado has been solid.

So Angels have not been kind, but I still have to go with Angels giving the ball to Escobar pitching .171 in day games. He is 11-5 with team record of 16-6 pitching 15 quality outings out of 20. Coming off two consecutive losses in close contests including one to Oakland (7/24).

Cincinnati Reds at Washington Nationals.
Starting pitchers: (CIN) Bronson Arroyo 4-11 team record 7-15
Arroyo maybe disappointing to most but he is a pitcher with potential. He did not get a decision in his last outing against Chicago Cubs pitching 7.2 innings 4 hits 2 runs 5 K's 1 BB and no HR and he is pitching quality.
(WAS) John Lannan will attempt another debut because of the ejection in his first try. He seemed to have moved quickly through the system so I would say his two seamer and change up must be getting better. I understand he also throws a curve.

Quality pitching 6 of last 7 is solid. Backing Reds.
