Dog Days of Summer Saturday MLB Pick

Can't keep me away too long. There's a quiet battle going on shadowed by Yanks at Red Sox. The game is SF Giants at Colorado Rockies. Keep your eyes on two teams playing the hot track. Giants take round one with Rox losing more than the game. They lost key pitcher Aaron Cook. Now they'll send Jorge De La Rosa 135.2 innings of work with excellent results, 8-1 for last 10 and Rockies winning 9 of 10. Tonight Jorge comes in with 20K's in last 13.1 innings over 2 games this is out of his norm. He also threw too many pitches and benefited from strong offense.
The other side is Joe Martines who is lacking seasonal data and he does labor on the mound showed his most effective start against the Mets. The out come looks closer than indicated by the odds and these two Over trending pitchers will get Bill Miller with O/U 8-17

SF GIANTS +188 for 1 unit(L)

0-1 -1.00 unit

MLB Monday

I have some interest in Chicago Cubs today facing the visiting World Champions Philadelphia Phillies. Purely a pitching speculation, but I think Harden will out do Happ. Keep in mind it's just a thought this match up on paper says Phillies and Happ will take the game, but odds makers are pointing to the Cubs. The problem is the risk of Phillies comeback in late inning. Take the short game.

CUBS First 5 innings*(PUSH)

Mid Summer Baseball

Don't you guys love it. When hot lazy days under the shade calls for boys of summer to take the field that familiar sound of Rawling in the air. Snap of the leather, crack of the bat it take you back to a place and time only you remember. Maybe in Birmingham, Tulsa, Albuquerque or somewhere where there's a field and young men with dreams of MLB. I will be watching, following and wishing you well.

Catch me on the flip side.

MLB Sunday

Mariners at Texas
Ian Snell was a bust as a Pirate before the trade to Seattle this season. I don't know but, sometimes your not happy where your at and it shows on your performance. Let's give some credit to 4 quality out of last 5 and showed ability to bounce back from poor outing. Keeping good pitch count per inning giving up no HR's has been the key. He's not going to mow them down and the pen should get some play time. Feldman for Texas has been doing it all season, but I see him as a road warrior with less impact at home. Doesn't mean he can't get the job done I just like these two team to end below the Total. Both teams tops in AL West Under's. Here we go.
